OUTDOOR PANCAKE FEAST
Our kids love pancakes full-stop. So we often have pancakes for breakfast during the weekends. Usually the French style, the flat ones. Sometimes we have American pancakes too, but I have yet to perfect this, as it usually ends up a bit doughy and not at all what we had in mind. Anyway. Emilia on the other hand keeps asking for waffles (Norway style), which to me is a dessert, but then again she´ll quite often ask for spaghetti bolognese for breakfast. (True girlfriend style, right?)
Last weekend we travelled to Sweden to see some friends, where we prepared our pancakes on open fire outdoors. In the rain. And cold. And somehow they just ended up tasting TEN TIMES better than anything we have had before. Must be the fresh air and drizzle right?
My brother-in-law does a wicked combo topping. Top notch British sausages glazed in honey, topped with honey glazed pistachio nuts. My sister prefers butter, cinnamon and sugar. Sounds weird? It is, but so is she, and it’s actually quite delicious. Our Mum´s favorite choice when we grew up; sugar and lemon – a trusty winner.
What about you? What topping do you like on your pancake? Or do you just like it plain with maple syrup like me?
