Sunday Pancakes

Mix a pancake,

Stir a pancake,

Pop it in the pan.

Fry the pancake,

Toss the pancake,

Catch it if you can!

Sunday ritual in the Silver Gull's nest.  I use the recipe from the Marie Claire cookbook, Food Fast, by the seemingly ever-present, one-woman empire, Donna Hay.  It's a fabulous, miracle adaptation of a basic batter recipe.  The toppings of choice round here are either 100 per cent Canadian maple syrup or lemon sugar.  We roll 'em up and eat with our fingers, or if we are feeling more refined, use a knife and fork. 

Favourite parts of this ritual, apart from eating, are cracking the eggs into the bowl and flipping the pancakes over.  There are queues and some tense bargaining for these tasks.
