Yes, in American usage T is tablespoon and t is teaspoon. My mother used those abbreviations, and so I do--probably my daughter does, too.

For pumpkin puree (or pumpkin pie filling) I use squash or pumpkin cooked and then mashed. Baking it works well, as long as you don't forget and leave it till it is browned around the edges--those bits don't mash very well....Whistle

Yep, Barbara is right, big T-tablespoon, little t-teaspoon.

When I was in high school and taking home economics, that was the way I tought. Another one of those "doesn't everybody know that?" moments.Embarassed

We have the more clunky tbsp or tsp.  I know what all purpose flour is though!  Another with a diff name, over here - plain flour.  Funny how these things have evolved away from each other.  Must try the pancakes though - sound very good.  One for the weekend I think!  Cheers

Another throw back from Home Economics, "you must specify the flour type!" Otherwise I suppose you would have someone using bread flour, or cake flour, and then heavens, where would you be?Laugh

Oh and Mutley, if you use pumpkin the pancakes turn out orange, so they are very kid friendly!

And to everybody who was thinking about using squash, I say why not? I don't know why it wouldn't be just as good.

I know my mother always makes her 'pumpkin' pie with butternut squash as it's less wet than pumpkin can be.  If I say so myself my mothers pumpkin pie is very good indeed :shimmy: must be all the cream and brandy!

I just downed mine with sugar and lemon. Waaay to excited about coming up with a decent gluten free batter! Best pancakes I've had in 9 years of being off wheat.

Little things mean a lot...whistle

Are you going to post your recipe so that other GF people can try it?  Don't know if we're going to have any.  If we do, I like mine with Maple Syrple and butter.

I'll try that again!

Oh TA, now I want another lot, with maple syrup!

 

All I did was use Dove's gluten free plain flour instead of wheat flour.

4oz flour

2 duck eggs

half cup milk

a dollop of melted butter

Then I decided the batter looked awful thin, so I chucked in some sorghum flour until it looked better. I reckon it was about 2/3 cup.

 

I also made good bread last week, so I'll trot on over to the gluten free thread sometime soon and post that.

None for me, Mike did suggest them but I said I didn't want any (diet) so he couldn't be bothered.

Have just had a treat of some ice cream and cherries - however I'm a lemon juice and sugar fan when I have them.

I'm a butter, lemon and sugar traditionalist. And leftover pancakes can be tasty the next day with cheese and ham. Not that there are often leftovers.


 

wave You can make a great lasagna or cannelloni using left-over pancakes instead of the usual pasta. I first had it on a farm in Italy years ago. I was told it was often used when the women did not have time to make pasta.  I must say I actually prefer it as the caramelization on the outside of the pancake gives the dish a lovely taste.   i_am_hungry
