There are lots of traditions that I miss from living in England and thankfully my Mother-In-Law knows it and she’s kind enough to remind us of these things so we don’t miss out them being over here and we can feel as though we’re still taking part in the same traditions as family over there.
I posted a picture on Facebook last night of one of the pancakes we made and some of you said you’d like the recipe! They are pretty easy to make with flour, milk, water and eggs! I found this recipe from one of my favorite British cooks – Delia Smith!
I can’t duplicate the recipe here for copyright reasons but you can view her recipe for “pancakes” HERE. You’ll need some lemon and sugar too because the best part is sprinkling a little sugar with some lemon juice and folding the pancake up to eat it! Seriously, it is SO good and one of my very favorite things to eat because the flavors are simply delicious!! I can remember the MIL making these for us all and we’d stand in line with our plates ready for the next pancake hot off the pan! (You can use just a regular size skillet for these pancakes!) Julian and I took turns making these last night, I would make them for him and he would eat them hot and then we switched chef hats so I had a chance to eat them hot too! He showed me up too because was brave enough to flip them in the pan! (See the video below!)
What’s your favorite “food tradition”?!
