You may well be a traditionalist and like nothing more than a wafer thin crepe glistening with lemon and a sprinkle of caster sugar. Or perhaps like me, your mantra is always ‘waste not, want not’. So when there is a brown banana lingering in the fruit bowl, your immediate instinct is to mash the ripened flesh into a thick batter and create a batch of griddled pancakes or drop scones.
If you have a new addition to the ‘family’ in the form of a sourdough starter which craves your constant attention. Perhaps you are wondering what to do with yet another batch of discard? So a batch of fermented pancakes is the perfect Shrove Tuesday treat.
