Euphro says:

Thanks, they were :D

18th Mar 2006, 14:05

bronxelf says:

Do all pancakes over there look like crepes?

Cause that's never what I think of when I think of pancakes.

(ask Joe and Shoes about that.... *LOL*)

kostika says:

I'm hungry now. Damn you.

18th Mar 2006, 14:21

Euphro says:

Pancake over here means what you would call a crepe. I don't think we have an equivalent of your pancakes, although they are a bit like big, thin, soft crumpets :)

18th Mar 2006, 14:23

kostika says:

It is possible to make "american pancakes" here. I've done it. Just takes the right ingredients and an american I think :o)

18th Mar 2006, 14:28

bronxelf says:

Do I have to start exporting Aunt Jemima mix?

Come on, people.

*laughing*

18th Mar 2006, 14:32

Euphro says:

I suspect that that 'wonder' may already have stormed our shores :)

18th Mar 2006, 14:44

kostika says:

Pancake mix is your friend.

Belf I prefer bisquick pancake mix.

18th Mar 2006, 15:12

bronxelf says:

I can get you Bisquick if you want. Since it all tastes the same to me I generally just get what's on sale.

18th Mar 2006, 15:17

kostika says:

I don't eat enough pancake to warrant shipping some over. I have some buttermilk stuff for making biscuits so I'm all good.

18th Mar 2006, 15:31

bronxelf says:

I usually don't eat them either. Mike eats them constantly. (add pancake mix to the "things I don't want to ever look at again for at least a year after he finally leaves" list.)

18th Mar 2006, 15:41

kostika says:

Actually that reminds me. I should make biscuits to go with dinner.

18th Mar 2006, 15:48

Euphro says:

Biscuits = scones, right?

18th Mar 2006, 17:31

bronxelf says:

Kinda. American biscuits tend to be a bit lighter and less dense than scones, but they're the same general shape. Biscuits tend to be flakier.

18th Mar 2006, 17:50

kostika says:

biscuits are more bread-like than scones. Kinda like yorkshire puddings only more fluffy and bread-like.

18th Mar 2006, 18:01

bronxelf says:

Euphro- I'll bring over a box of Bisquick. This will entirely solve the problem.

18th Mar 2006, 18:03

Euphro says:

Do people make them from scratch? Crepes are ridiculously easy to make that way, and are something that E is guaranteed to eat (hence lunch today). I guess that pancakes are a bit more complex. Do they have a raising agent?

18th Mar 2006, 18:41

bronxelf says:

People do make them from scratch. All the time. I just don't eat enough of the things to warrant the hassle.

Random Pancake Recipe

Everyone has their own-- they vary slightly from person to person. These are not, obviously buttermilk pancakes, nor are they johnnycakes or buckwheat cakes or... you get the idea. These are plain, standard pancakes.

ETA: Don't believe them. That egg isn't optional.

18th Mar 2006, 18:44

Euphro says:

I found another recipe that looks more reliable. It all looks very straightforward, and, as you say, eggs are not 'optional' :D

18th Mar 2006, 18:48

bronxelf says:

I cal also tell you that corn cakes (there's a "fluffy corn cake" recipe on that last link I posted) are AWESOME.

18th Mar 2006, 18:50

Euphro says:

I'm always on for trying something new, so I'll give one of these a go next time :)

18th Mar 2006, 18:51

bronxelf says:

You can alter the corn cake recipe slightly (it needs to be a bit wetter) to make corn fritters. Just add some marjoram and a teensy bit of sugar and pepper to the batter and deep fry them.

Oh. So. Good.

18th Mar 2006, 19:08

bronxelf says:

Oh see now that's an idea. I can moblog the hostage exchange...

And I can bring over maple syrup. We make it in NYS too. :)

18th Mar 2006, 21:31

kostika says:

You can get real maple sytup in the US too. It's jsut more common over here and less of the fake stuff.

18th Mar 2006, 21:34

bronxelf says:

(Is there a maple syrup shortage? Cause I can get it just fine. They make it in NYS, and Vermont...)

18th Mar 2006, 21:37

kostika says:

Meat flavoured crisps.

18th Mar 2006, 22:59

bronxelf says:

I can do that.

They have those Oberto Jerky chips...

18th Mar 2006, 23:11

bronxelf says:

and *we* have bagels.

Real bagels.

18th Mar 2006, 23:11

kostika says:

Not the same. I'm talking normal meat flavoured potatoe crisps.

19th Mar 2006, 00:30

bronxelf says:

Oh you mean like the Tim's Cascades Steak and whatever potato chips?

I can probably have those sent over by my mother-- she's in Seattle.

19th Mar 2006, 00:51

kostika says:

Still not the same. :oP

19th Mar 2006, 01:11

bronxelf says:

Im just trying to figure out what you mean. The only meat flavored potato chips I know of are Tim's Cascades.

19th Mar 2006, 01:13

Euphro says:

Do you mean like beef-flavoured Walker's crisps, stuff like that?

19th Mar 2006, 08:19

Euphro says:

Good-quality maple syrup is quite hard to find over here, in my experience.

19th Mar 2006, 08:19

bronxelf says:

Oh well *now* we have something to bargain with, because Swamprose and I *can* get the good stuff.

(and I still have Mr. Bagel.)

19th Mar 2006, 08:33

Euphro says:

I don't think I've had a good bagel experience so far (my sister introduced me to them in DC). I just don't get them :)

19th Mar 2006, 08:44

bronxelf says:

I can fix that.

19th Mar 2006, 09:00

kostika says:

Euph that's exactly what I mean. But I don't know how to explain the joys of Walker meat flavoured crisps to Belf.

Also have you had a look at M&S; for maple syrup?

19th Mar 2006, 14:30

kostika says:

Oh and afaik, a proper bagel is boiled before it is baked.

19th Mar 2006, 14:33

bronxelf says:

A proper bagel is *definitely* boiled prior to baking.

Though that toasted with cream cheese and wild caught smoked salmon sounds *really* good about now.

19th Mar 2006, 14:54

Euphro says:

Thanks for all the enlightenment. It does sound quite delicious :)

19th Mar 2006, 22:32

kostika says:

I made biscuits and gravy for dinner tonight and blogged. So you can see what biscuits look like. Although mine don't look very great. But it was a first attempt at homemade ones.

19th Mar 2006, 22:35

Euphro says:

I can see some more pancake batter experimentation coming up :D
