Didn't have the ingredients to make them from scratch - plus it was sort of a spur of the moment thing - so I picked up one of these 'just add milk' ready mixes. (also saw another packet mix which said 'just add eggs and milk'...so WTF is in that packet, just flour??)
As usual it took about 3 pancakes before I managed to get the right consistency/thickness, and then of course there wasn't any mix left, but the good thing about pancakes is that with enough golden syrup, it matters not if they're as thick as a slice of bread (doorstep variety!)
Am now feeling rather stuffed, but have vowed to give up sweets for lent - with the usual exclusions*. Mainly because my nephews have 'decided' to do the same, and anything they can do, i can manage as well.
* exclusions being St.Patricks day, which doesn't count as part of Lent if you're Irish, and any other 'special occasion', like say, the weekend ;-)
