on the weekend

Pancakes for breakfast :

Lot's of sewing up squares  (and yes, I need a manicure) :

Drying oregano :

Rearranged a small corner in the kitchen and brought this set out of storage:

Here is the pancake recipe I use:

Nigella's American Pancakes (from the Domestic Goddess book)

225g plain flour
  1 tablespoon baking powder
  pinch of salt
1 teaspoon sugar
  2 large eggs, beaten
  30g butter, melted and cooled
300ml milk
butter for frying
Whisk all ingredients together until blended. You can leave for 20 minutes, but I am generally too impatient to do this. Pour a ladleful at a time into the frypan and cook until bubbling on the top. Flip over and cook for another minute or so.
I like to keep mine warm in a very low oven that I switch off after 5 minutes or so. I usually double the recipe for our hungry family of four... number 5 is still on a milk diet :)



  1. pancakes look delish! I can't wait to see the doona cover when it's finished!

  2. Pancakes are a weekend brekky ritual in our home :)
    Loving your storage containers.

  3. How do you get your pancakes to look like that?! What sort of pan do you use??? Mine always look AWFUL! (Taste good though... luckily!)

  4. Delicious!
    Looks like your doona cover is coming together beautifully, and I am loving on those storage containers.
    Enjoy your week.

  5. We had pancakes yesterday morning. Sometimes we have them for Sunday Supper as well.

  6. Pancakes look delicious, but I could gobble up those canisters!

  7. That is the pancake recipe I use too! They are always delicious.
    I am loving all those sweet squares. I can't wait to see the finished product.

  8. Vic, I use a heavy based non-stick pan (Circulon brand) that works quit well with pancakes. Though, when the budget allows I'd like to phase out my non stick pans as I've heard they can be toxic :(
