So how many of you will be making pancakes today? Or perhaps you are pro pancake racers? How do you like your pancakes?

For some strange reason, in Detroit they don't do pancakes, they eat "Paczki" which are like a large, jam filled, donut. Apparantly it is a Polish tradition that somehow travelled over here - but nowhere else in America!

I always had fresh squeezed lemon or orange juice, and sugar on mine. But my husband, and now my kids [after seeing him do it] put vinegar and sugar on theirs.

Never heard of putting vinegar on pancakes or even know of someone who does how strange must try some day…just sugar and fresh squeezed orange juice for me.

Nah you are wrong Den. I love blueberries & Vanilla yoghurt on mine. As a child I remember we used to have just jam some of the time along with the traditional orange juice & sugar the times we had an orange in the larder.

Definitely a squeeze of lemon and brown sugar for me. My daughter had a go once, and hers ended up more like a Crepe Suzette, right down to the Grand Marnier. Very nice, but they weren't the real traditional pancakes for pancake day. My Dad used to spinkle ground nutmeg and cinnamon on his. They were quite yummy.

Mention of Golden Syrup brought back a memory.  Me mam used to make Treacle Pud' with that.  I used to love it.  I was trying to describe it to Mrs. L the other day, but she didn't seem to grasp the idea.  :). No Robertsons over here as far as I know.

When I was young, Pancake Day was the only day in the year I ever ate (or had the choice of) pancakes. 

 

Now you see dozens of variations on the subject, and can buy them all year round in supermarkets.

I liked them with a bit of sugar and freshly squeezed orange juice. Lemon was too harsh for my delicate sensibilities.

My mum always put sugar and orange juice on our pancakes too. 
My wife and her mum used to always comment how strange it was and insisted it had to be lemon juice leading on to arguments about the properties of citrus fruits, limonene, citric acid etc. BTW  I was a professional food/flavour chemist before I retired so I do have a pretty good insight.

I bet they're nice with lime juice too but I've yet to try it.

Hands up you lot who tossed a pancake in your frying pan,  and it stuck to the kitchen ceiling ?
