This is the end…

After five years of holding this blog, we have now come to an impossible situation. Indeed, as a teacher, I now have so much on my hands that it has become impossible for me to continue correcting and posting the articles of the pupils at a rate compatible with syllabus work and the necessities of grading.

 

As a result, there will be only one last set of articles, after which we will sign off indefinitely, much to our collective chagrin.

I hope I will be able to pick up where we will have left off, at some not-too-distant point in the foreseeable future, although I am not at all certain this will happen.

 

It has been wonderful writing for you, and getting messages of support for our endeavours. Thank you so much.

Mix the flour, the sugar and the baking powder in a salad bowl. Let the butter melt in the slightly lukewarm milk and pour onto the previous mix. Add slightly beaten eggs and mix with a hand whisk to get a thick crepe pastry . Let rest 30 minutes at room temperature.

  • Heat a large frying pan with an anti-adhesive coating. Brush it with oil and deposit a small ladle of  pancake mix. Cook for 1 minute, more or less, and turn pancakes when small bubbles  start to appear on the surface. Let the second side brown and serve pancakes without waiting. Classically, coat with maple syrup, honey, jam, or red fruit jelly. For mellower pancakes, utilize the « type 65 » flour.

To accompany this version  of pancakes, you can fry bananas with a little honey. Add a little  orange juice in order to obtain a touch of acidity. Add dried fruits around your pancakes. It is very delicious.

I hope that this recipe will please you and  you’ll have a good meal.
