Childhood favourites… Lemon and sugar pancakes :)
I had a serious blast of food nostalgia last night from my childhood.. +/ around 8 or 9 years of age I think it was when I first had these..
The nostalgia happened last night when my pregnant girlfriend had a craving for some food just before we were going to bed around 11pm so I whipped up a childhood classic of mine for her, lemon and sugar pancakes!
I think this was quite a general English classic for many kids growing up back home as I seem to remember (albeit very vaguely) a few friends at the time eating it at their homes too…
I made the pancake batter by eye but its basically as follows:-
- 2 eggs
- Approx 200ml milk
- Approx 100g flour
- Pinch salt
- Whisk eggs and milk together
- Add flour and salt and mix until smooth
- No need to rest the batter before cooking.. just cook, squeeze on lemon juice.. sprinkle with sugar..close eyes…eat.. enjoy!!
What are your favourite childhood dishes and from what age?
