American Pancakes In Cornwall


Not a great picture, but these pancakes are delicious & so easy to make...
They also got the thumbs up from our American friends!

Vegan Pancake Recipe
1 cup (250g) self-raising whole wheat flour
1 cup porridge oats
1 heaped teaspoon ground linseeds or egg replacement powder
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 cup water
1 cup plant milk

Method
Chuck all the dry ingredients into a bowl or large measuring jug.
Gradually add the wet ingredients & mix well.
Finish by whizzing with a hand blender...

We made them for breakfast at the weekend.
(Little D wasn't keen on Sime's porridge)

We get the hob ring hot & use a non-stick pan, so no need for oil, etc.
Pour enough mixture in the pan & cook until it starts bubbling fiercely.
The pancake should just flip over easily.

We burnt this one, so D (isn't she a cutie?) gave it to her Daddy...
We like fresh lemon or lime juice on ours with either some home made cinnamon sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup... Enjoy!

D's parents were in Cornwall to do a couple of shows & she likes joining in too...

We'll do another post about them & how we met...

Have a super duper weekend!

You know me, I'm a great fan of the chuck it in method LOL
I must try these.

I just love little D, what a darling! I used to have curls like that when I was her age LOL

Jane - I definitely couldn't eat more than 2!

Kath - I think most food we enjoy cooking is using the "chuck it in" method!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
