When Richard and I first moved in together, he made us “English pancakes” for breakfast. At the time, I was unaware that there was a difference between American pancakes and English ones.
Many American recipes for “homestyle” pancakes call for buttermilk. They are typically dense, yet somehow still fluffy! MY favorite American pancakes are those cooked with chocolate chips and sliced bananas. Amazing.
English pancakes are similar to crepes — light and thin. The batter is so simple, too! Flour, butter, eggs, milk, salt. Well, you can see where this post is going. My grandmother mentioned English pancakes the other day (because of Shrove Tuesday), so I asked Richard if he would make them for us!
You can find the recipe that we used for English Pancakes here. We topped ours with cane sugar and lemon juice — so tasty!
