Who cares about shape? Those look scrumptious!
That's how you can tell when my wife has made a sandwich...open loaf of bread, open mustard jar, cheese left out...Cup of tea..... And one crumpet, daughter left packet on the bench (grrr, leaves stuff everywhere) caught my eye so I had one.
If you want perfectly round pancakes, get one of these. My mom has one, and it works great.Guess I am a bit of a perfectionist and they were nice indeed. Nigella is a great cook
I always use a ladle to transfer from the dish in which the batter was made. Mine are English pancakes though, much thinner than the American norm.The American pancakes I made this afternoon. Wonky shaped because Nigella said it's better to pour from a jug than to spoon from a ladle, well not for me.
I checked with my wife. It's actually sold with a portion of chilli dipping sauce but my wife didn't take that (knowing that I'd likely pour gravy on it).At a guess I would think without Bisto gravy.
However they serve it there will be some form of chilli sauce/paste with it.
What should have taken me just over 1 hour to prepare and cook took me over 5 hours. Still it was very good (albeit a little hotter than normal). And there's another 4 portions to freeze for later.It's very hot here particularly in the kitchen. I'm preparing "Chicken Kolhapuri" in 15 minute stints (between beers).
