      You use a fresh lemon slice, sprinkle a little sugar over the pancake, then squeeze drops of juice from the lemon piece over the surface, as much or as little as you like. Then roll up the pancake from one side (without tucking the ends in, so not like a spring roll!), or fold in into quarters, and enjoy! (the enjoying is very important…)

      Hey William! Unfortunately I usually cook without recipes and precise amounts, but BBC has a recipe that looks preeeeetty convincing: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2907669/easy-pancakes
      Not sure if you’re the same William who commented on another post involving my milk allergy, but if you are: the recipe works fine with soy milk and almond milk. Steer clear from watery milks (rice, almond flavoured) because the pancakes will turn out soggy. OR use an extra egg in emergencies.

    You need both! Savoury first, _then_ with lemon and sugar.

    This year I will be very decadant and have two cheese ones (with tomato), and a lemon and sugar one, AND a cottage cheese and chocolate chip one (with orange slices on the side)… because there’s just me to cook for and the smallest amount of batter I know how to make makes 4 British-style pancakes and they just aren’t as nice kept for later.

      Oh my that sounds like a luxury pancake dinner! *_* My cheese pancakes usually stay acceptable/microwaveable so large amounts are okay–especially since I can’t cook small amounts either. >_>
      I’ve not tried it with tomatoes before, do you fry them first and then pour the batter over it? Or do you serve the cheese pancake with fresh tomato slices? Cottage cheese, chocolate and orange sounds amazing…damn you, milk allergy! I’ll just drown my sorrows in Grand Marnier-soaked crêpes…
