There's only one way I like to have my pancakes - dropped!
Due to our Portuguese heritage, the pancakes we make and enjoy in Guyana are different; some of you may know them as Malasadas or Portuguese Donuts. My friends we are talking here about pillowy soft balls of goodness. You can't just eat one or two. It's no wonder they are especially made the day before Lent starts so that we can ease our conscience by saying that we will be fasting... Read more about this excellent Portuguese creation and I guarantee you that you will want to try the recipe because it is so easy to make. Go on click here for the column and the recipe.
A couple of weeks ago, I also tried Lubos's Grandmother's Apple Pancakes and they were very good. I think that it is a stroke of genius to separate the eggs, beating the whites stiff and then folding it in to the batter, it really makes a difference to the airyness of the pancake. Actually, if you're only making plain pancakes, I'd highly recommend you make it this way, you'll love the texture. I made the following adjustments to the recipe - I added 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the batter.
And now on to some news. A few weeks ago, I threw out a challenge. To that end, some blogger friends who accepted the challenge and I have created a blog where we will be logging the everyday food we make that's considered vegan or vegetarian.

Happy Weekend everyone!
