Shrove Tuesday - Pancake Day

The origins of this day, the week before Ash Wednesday is one steeped in history,  It's also really good covered in real maple syrup with sausages, especially as "breakfast for dinner".

As usual, I was left with a bowl of NastyDryCrap  and water but if I give Mom the sad eyes she'll give me a treat  later.


  1. Dem pancakes look tasty. We does da cajun food round here.

  2. Love your description of your food, gotta use that one day.....now about them pancakes, we do get them, cause they always make to many....your welcome to come on over the next time !

    No nastydrycrap here!

  3. Mom's favorite pancake recipe.

    1 cup flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 Tablespoons sugar

    Mix in small bowl

    1 cup buttermilk or plain kefir (she usually uses kefir for really fluffy ones)
    1 egg at room temperature
    1/2 tsp real vanilla extract

    whisk in small bowl

    Slowly stream in 2 tablespoons of melted butter, whisking constantly.

    Stir into dry ingredients just until combined. These are quite fluffy so smaller is easier to handle.

    Cook on a griddle. Makes about 8-10 smaller sized pancakes, enough for two hungry people

    If you don't have kefir or buttermilk - pour a cup of milk, remove 2 or 3 teaspoons of milk and replace with lemon juice and let sit 10 minutes.

  4. Whitley - Mom's partner at squirrel centra is a former Marine pilot and Cajun - she's even learned how to speak a little Cajun which makes me laugh. He watches her back and that makes me happy.

  5. OMD, Ma just fell overs lookin' at that stack!!! Then...reading that recipe...I thinks I just heard her stomach growl!
    I agree, nastydrycrap is ingenious!!!!
    though, I likes my nastydrycrap, so what does that make me?! BOL
    Okays, if you don't mind, I'm comin' overs...you still have some pancakes left right???

    Loves and licky kisses
