“These are beautiful savoury pancakes. This was cooked by a friend of mine in home economics in high school. I normally just add in quantities by memory so have tried to guess. I hope they are fairly accurate. You can also use flavoured pasta sauces such as red wine, garlic and herbs etc. You can also use left over mince from a spaghetti bolognese.”
