    your pancakes look fab, sound really yummy, my aunt used to make pancakes & serve stew & mash on them – yummy old english war dinner (when they had no meat, protein from eggs would fill them)

    Thanks Vicky! Sounds like your aunt was making sure that the family was all filled up. Wonder what she’d make of buckwheat pancakes? Actually, they’re a lot more filling than the normal ones made with wheat flour.

    And it’s totally yummy! I know my neighbours enjoyed it. I think that they were wondering what would be for lunch when I told them that it was pancakes all the way.
