Pancakes for lunch
Update for German Sibling: The recipe for whipped butter is essentially that - you beat the shit out of some room temperature butter until it is light, white and fluffy. The buttermilk pancakes are easy too. One or two cups of self raising flour an egg and maybe a quarter to half a cup of sugar. Whisk that and add butter milk until you have a pancake mix consistency - not too runny. I used about 450 ml of buttermilk today. You can use ordinary milk like we have for most of our lives but lately I've found the buttermilk gives it that Lovely Pancake Parlour flavour. I do it by look and feel. I don't measure it all out as such. Try and get some real Canadian Maple Syrup. The maple flavoured just doesn't cut it. Even in the Pancake Parlour they charge extra for the real deal otherwise you just get the flavoured shite - but it will do in a pinch. Honey works too I suppose.
It is the one gastronomic contribution from Yank culture that I think is sublime. A couple of years ago I would've had a fit if you made me eat this but now...
PS: Michelle said she has all those lovely recipes on her blog but the one you want is pancakes. LOL :-)
