Mama's pancakes were very special. How she shared them is a
memory that has stayed with me for many years. Hot and perfect
with a nice combination of sugar and salt, there was a special
ingredient at the time that made it distinctive.
At home today 'the pancake event' is still one of the best times we
bond as a family. Whilst I fry, their plates queue up, the nutmeg laced
pancakes are eaten until all the frying is done. There is definitely an
order to it.
The topping that won then and now is creamy and sweet, condensed
milk. It is interesting how tastes transfer through the generations and
history repeats itself. Interestingly the same topping has won, today.
