There's really no need for a store-bought mix - you're better off without all those additives.
Fresh eggs from your own backyard chickens, a good quality organic flour and an unwaxed lemon is the way to go - and much less expensive.
Pancakes, crêpes and the UK.
Traditionally, pancakes in England are thin and usually eaten rolled up, dressed with sugar and a squeeze of the juice of a fresh lemon.
Elsewhere, they'd probably be called "crêpes" and eaten with a variety of fillings, both sweet and savoury.
I love the English version, though. Even the sight of them makes my mouth water.
'Pancake Tuesday' - also known as 'Shrove Tuesday' - in the UK (and 'Mardi Gras' elsewhere) is the day before Ash Wednesday. Traditionally, it's the day when pancakes are eaten in the UK, at least at one meal.
Historically this has a religious background - eating all the rich foods before the beginning of 40 days' fasting during Lent.
When I was young and about to leave home, I'd tell my family "You'll miss my pancakes when I'm gone".
Why? Because English pancakes are so, so easy to make - they were about the only thing I could cook successfully.
To this day - many years later - I make them every Pancake Tuesday and occasional days in between. And I am not known for my cooking skills!
That's how easy they are.
This is plenty for 4 - 6 pancakes in a 10" pan.
