Pancakes, waffles, pikelets, flapjacks, crepes are all batter-type foods that just have a few different ingredients in them to make them crisper on the outside or softer on the inside, also cooked different ways like on a griddle or a waffle maker.

Pancake

My Recipe for Pancakes.

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 egg yolks slightly beaten
  • 2 egg whites beaten stiff

Instructions

    1. Sift flour, sugar, and salt twice.
    2. Mix milk and egg yolks together, then add the flour gradually.
    3. Mix to smooth batter.
    4. Add the butter.
    5. Fold in egg whites.
    6. Bake on a hot greased griddle, when bubbles are starting to break, flip it and cook the other side. I would keep them warm in the oven on a very low heat while cooking the rest.
    7. Serve.

Ways of serving:

Lemon juice and sugar

Spread with jelly or jam and roll.

Fresh berries and whipped cream and roll.

Butter and Golden syrup. Called Maple Syrup in other parts of the world.

Or for an evening meal, roll the pancake around a cooked sausage and bacon, also nice for breakfast.

I would serve pancakes to my family for a Sunday night tea after having had a Roast meal for Sunday at lunchtime.

Pancakes and Pikelets

Pikelet or crepe

There really isn’t any difference between pancakes and pikelets. Pikelets are made smaller which is a nice size to have with strawberry jam and whipped cream with a coffee.
Here’s the recipe I have been using for many years for making pikelets from my grandmother.

Pikelets

  • one cup flour,
  • 1 tablespoon sugar,
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt,
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar,
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda,
  • 1 egg,
  • Milk to mix to a stiff paste,
  • 1 teaspoon melted butter
  • Put all sifted dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Break in the egg and mix in milk, add last the melted butter.
  • Mix well and let stand 1/2 hour.
  • Drop in spoonful lots on a hot greased girdle, when all bubbles are on the top, flip the pikelet over and cook the other side.
  • When cooked lift of the girdle and put on a clean tea tail on a cake rack and cook the next batch.
  • When ready to serve the warm pikelets, you can serve buttered with jam or jelly or just jam and whipped cream on it.
  • Eaten at afternoon or morning tea with a cup of tea or coffee.

Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.

Bussokusekika Poetry – a pattern of 5-7-5-7-7-7 Tanka poem with an extra phrase of seven added on at the end.

Tanka Poetry – consists of five units, usually with the following pattern of 5-7-5-7-7 which is syllables.

The first three lines (5/7/5) are the upper phase. This upper stage is where you create an image in your reader’s mind.

Weekend Writing Prompt #56 – Erosion Everywhere

Thank you, Sammi Cox, for the prompt – Erosion – 125 words, if you would like to join in, please use the above link

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem/prose must contain this week’s word.  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem/rose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.

Erosion Everywhere

Erosion is everywhere
whether it’s in ones life
or part of natures moods
the eating away of land
the sea on coastal belts
falling of timber trees
eating away protection
of dangerous gases
floating around the air
polluting the world

Maybe a spider web
that’s erosion of its home
How many more homes
to disappear from ones life
So much misery for humans
manners have changed
no please or thank you’s
These days human bodies
are slowing showing the
effects of a life of erosion.

Destruction is everywhere
Leaders of the country
forever changing rules
life hanging on a thread
Too many guns around
schools work under stress
every day children suffer
erosion of their little life
not knowing what to do
The laws need repairing.

Saturday Mix – Opposing Forces, 26 May 2018 – Fresh Roses

 ‘Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’, ‘Saturday Mix’, #OpposingForces.

This challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. You will need to use the two opposing words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

The words this week are:

– fresh and stale

– rise and fall

Fresh Roses

Fresh Fall Roses

The fall of leaves was nearly over, Autumn had been very trying, hardly ever seeing the sunrise, winter had come far too early, it was going to be a long season, I need to rise to the occasion and lift the happiness I felt today for the coming months and not fall down from my duty as a responsible landowner.

Checking the hay shed out, the smell of stale air filtered with the musty smell of damp hay, made me gasp for breath, even the freshly cut scented roses I had in my hands turned their heads in dismay.

Walking back out I left the doors open, hoping the fresh air starting to circulate would dry it out a little before the setting sun disappears behind the ranges.

It was a joy walking back to the house, the scent of the fresh rose filling the air, they seemed to lift their heads and I’m sure they smiled back at me.

PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

Each week,  Rochelle Wisoff-Fields hosts Friday Fictioneers where we’re challenged to write a piece of flash fiction in 100 words, more or less, based on the picture above, I have written a poem telling the story, if you would like to join in please use the above link.

Crystal Bowl

Crystal bowl center of the table

brightly colored plant smiling

but turning the back of its leaves

to the turned off computer near-by

Darkness is not good for growth

the light must shine for its health

for the green in its leaves to light

while the chair looked on in muse

Consider the crystal bowl feelings

happy to have life within its heart

shining bright waiting for the ring

as someone gently taps its top rim

Musical ring gently flowing round

echoing the happiness within its brim

My soul was filled with untold joy

crystal was always my favorite item.

lucky no rain for several days
river was still running high
the angle the tide went
moment to enjoy
warmth of the sun
rest in peace
next day
work

Grilled Vegatables

#Tummy Tuesdays: How to Barbecue Vegetables

#Tummy Tuesdays

If you would like to join in on the “Weekly Tummy Tuesday blog hop”, please use the above link. You can post anything about food: a restaurant review, a recipe, food photography, a funny food quote, a food song, an essay on food — anything food-related.

How to Barbecue Vegetables

Barbecue vegetables are so easy to do these days, so many useful tools and trays to use on the barbie, that you can just about grill any vegetable on the barbecue.

Here I have ten vegetables and a few suggestions of seasonings that can make a difference to the taste.

Just as grilling over a charcoal fire can be a completely different taste to a gas barbecue.

Tips for Grilling Vegetables on the Barbecue

It’s a simple matter to grill vegetables on the barbecue.

Most vegetables can be grilled, by using foil wrapping.

You can prepare the vegetables ahead of time and have the foil-wrapped packets waiting to put on the grill when the fire is ready.

To Grill: Rinse vegetables thoroughly but do not pat dry – water that clings create enough moisture to steam most vegetables.

Place up to 4 servings of the vegetables on a sheet of heavy-duty foil.

(If grilling more than 4 servings, prepare several sheets; wrap potatoes and corn on the cob individually).

Evenly dot with butter or margarine, using 2 tablespoons for every 4 serving.

Wrap vegetables tightly in foil and place on a grill 4 to 6 inches above a solid bed of medium-glowing coals.

Cook, shifting packets occasionally so vegetables cook evenly; test for doneness at the minimum suggested time, but barbecues may be hotter at times so cooking times can vary.

To Serve: Season to taste with salt and pepper, or choose one or more of the seasonings suggested with each vegetable below.
