OK, so my brief lapse in posting was mainly due to the fact that I thought I was a goner.
I thought I had broken my internets.
Scary times. However, with le Boof on the case we eventually discovered it was a USB hub I had recently plugged into my PC that was a bit dodgy that had mucked about with things. All is now back to normal, panic is over and I can get back to sharing all the crafty things I have been doing to avoid doing real work. *ahem*
This morning (afternoon) le Boof decided he wanted pancakes for breakfast (lunch). After whipping up a batch of batter I thought I'd get a little creative and try some pancake art (far better and more creative versions can be found here). This is how to go about it.
My recipe of choice for making pancakes is
125g of plain flour, 1 egg and 300ml milk
All popped in a bowl and whisked up until there's no lumps, then left for 5 minutes to settle.
This makes 8 large but quite thin pancakes. Which, when filled with things like cheese and chutney or lemon curd and sugar, is plenty for two people for breakfast (lunch), but you can always scale up for more people or larger appetites.
I remember when I was searching for a recipe for pancakes a while a go I couldn't find one without butter in it, which I've never heard of before. This one is the one my Ma's always used and therefore, to me, is how pancakes should be made.
Le Boof was over the moon at his personalised pancake. I might do them again for Valentine's day.
Currently playing: Bastion
(Beautiful RPG game with a commentary that follows what you're doing, a very clever take on a common gaming genre. Aurally and visually pleasing with a great soundtrack.)
Must watch: The Bell Song live by OKGo
(A fantastic rendition of one of my favourite songs from their first album. OKGo are one of those bands who are forever making things fun and lovely.)
