Alone, at the Bottom of the World (part 5)

It's All About The Food!

Any mention of food in this space elicits a heightened response. Several faithful readers have shared their surprise at having pancakes for lunch (along with the white bread, scones and tomato soup). The scone-lovers among us especially perked up at the mention of a scone. They are fans of the scone and emit a cheer each time the SconeLady utters it. 

But they think mostly in terms of a scone with tea, or with jam and cream, tea sandwiches, tea cakes, maybe even lemon bars. Maybe not so much with pancakes and white bread. Therefore let us think of it this way: we need not lower our standards, my friends, but perhaps we can broaden them to include the odd pancake!

Today, in honor of the inclusion of the pancake, I Googled up a New Zealand recipe for you. The pancakes above are from a Women's Weekly blog, and don't they look smashing? I suspect you will need the recipe, and may soon make them for your own eager families - for breakfast or for lunch. 

New Zealand PANCAKES
1 cup flour
Pinch of salt
2 large eggs
100ml water
200ml milk
25g butter

Sift flour and salt. Add eggs, then water and milk mixture. Melt the butter, and add. Bake round cakes on a greased hot griddle. The Women's Weekly blogger recommends you serve them with a bit of lemon juice, and a sprinkle of confectioner's sugar. 

I, however, plan to reach for the syrup. It's what all good Americans do.

See you along the Way!
