NO - definitely not!  I'm not keen on pancakes at all but I do make them on Shrove Tuesday with lemon and sugar (sometimes sultanas too) for OH.  He had buttermilk pancakes for breakfast one day when we were in Canada on holiday so I bought a packet mix to bring home.  I've made two batches of them and I'm still not a fan.  Think it's because I prefer savoury to sweet food.  And maple syrup with bacon and pancakes eeek it's so wrong to me!

No, I definitely wouldn't either.  I do quite like pancakes, especially the thicker American style, and I do make blueberry ones on rare occasions.  But it's all such a faff, I can't usually be bothered.

I am the same, I like them, even the buttermilk ones but there is too much effort and for very little goodness. I quite like spring rolls but couldn't be bothered to make them either.

I'll try that again!

Seeing this thread again reminds me that we brought a couple of bags of buckwheat flour back from holiday. We ate a lot of buckwheat pancakes while we were there and meant to have a go at making them when we got home. We still haven't made any. Maybe tomorrow, if I remember....

I made them for lunch. I made a slightly runnier than usual batter:

  • 250 g buckwheat
  • 3 small eggs
  • about 500ml of 50:50 milk and water
  • 60g melted butter
  • pinch of salt

I'm not sure exactly how much liquid I added - I kept adding it until the mixture looked right and gave a decent thickness of pancake.

My pancakes weren't quite as flexible as the ones we had on holiday - it was hard to get them as thin and not break them while getting them out of the pan, so I made them a bit thicker. They tasted similar enough to the ones we had on holiday.

 I eat a lot of pancakes - here they are a very common breakfast here with syrup. Grits are the most used breakfast starch, and toast naturally. I make corn meal pancakes mostly - but blueberry pancakes the easy way is just a couple heaping tablespoons self rising flour, a egg, stir in milk till it is a thick, pourable, batter, thin enough it will spread out on the pan, then stir in blueberries. Pour into warmed pan with some oil - melted butter is good. When bubbles make hallow cones from the bottom that side is done, flip and do other side.

 

 Crepes are the best - my wife's favorite, like the Jewish blintz. Mix a heaping tablespoon of self rising flour with an egg and milk till it is a runny batter. Pour into pan and let run around to make an 8 inch pancake (should make 2 - a crepe. Flip with the spatula and by flipping the pan. A thin, rubbery pancake is done - put it on a plate and spread some jam in a line on one side, add a line of cottage cheese on that and roll it up. Top with lemon/sugar or maple syrup, or melted jam. So easy, so good. I had to look at blintzes to get a picture of what ours look like - from google:

Yum, I like blueberry pancakes too.  I made banana pancakes this morning.....I'm on a low carb eating plan so no flour, I just mashed up a banana and mixed it with a beaten egg, then stirred in a heaped dessertspoon of coconut milk powder (just the dry powder) to thicken it a bit.  Made half a dozen small thickish pancakes.

I've seen the banana pancake recipes on a few sites but haven't got around to trying them yet. Since both the children like bananas, I might give them a go. Emma has tried a few pancake variations using things other than flour. Mashed potato works surprisingly well, to make a thick 'american style' pancake. Coconut flour is also good but the pancakes come out a bit more dense.

Yes i tried too, but i made mixture of flour and salt before adding milk and egg. I think you did not made a mixture before adding milk. While after that i added vegetable oil and after some time, the delicious pan cake was ready to eat.

I tried to make pancakes from rye flour, I did not succeed, I make pancakes from wheat flour and add coconut milk.
