Pancake Day - from the archives

In honour of pancake day today I thought I'd re-publish a post first seen way back in 2010 (15th January, to be precise) when your humble correspondent was invited to a flipping' awesome pancake tossing orgy down in London. I was reminded of it this lunchtime as I was cooking pancakes in the self-same pancake pan I took away on the day (they let me)... still tossing like a trouper. The original title was...

I've Flipped!

And there's a video to prove it. Rosie Scribble's seen it. As has Clareybabble. It went out live yesterday on JustinTV (I think it's something to do with Mr Tumble) and I'm hoping to see it myself before long. At the time though, like when these pics were taken, I had other things on my mind. Like making lump-free pancake mixture. And melting just the right amount of butter to the right temperature. And pouring it in to the pan without spilling any. And cooking the pancake without it sticking. Flipping the darned thing was the last thing on my mind. As was being watched live on the interweb while 'doing it'. But, hey! Maybe that's why I flipped? Just the once, mind. I wouldn't want you getting the wrong idea. But it was flipping good, even if I do say so myself. And there were witnesses. Cafebebe for one. And MuddlingAlongMummy for two. So in the absence of an action-replay, that'll have to do. Until I get hold of the flipping footage.

Just look at that concentration!

And I didn't swear at Emma Forbes. Not once!

Mind you, Charlie wasn't missing out on anything...

Mmmmm, thanks Fleishman Hillard and Lyle's Golden Syrup for teaching daddy to do this!

Move over, Gordon Ramsey....

  1. I was thinking of you whilst demonstrating my killer pancake technique that we picked up that day - how can it be 5 years ago???
