Little Tosser

Louis' latest cooking venture is thoroughly un-British,  making pancakes for breakfast on a lazy weekend morning where we don't have to get moving too quickly.  This is  perhaps a step up in skill level for Little Chef as it involved cracking eggs and cooking at the stove.

Here he is teaching Nana Lovelygrey to make batter out of 100-ish grammes of flour, a generous pinch of salt, two eggs and half a pint of milk which he carefully measured, then mixed and whizzed with our hand held mixer.  He then measured out the batter and even attempted to toss one pancake.

But the best bit is choosing the topping.  Unfortunately the ultimate classic was unavailable as there were no lemons, even though I buy these impulsively and they are usually in abundance in the fruit bowl. Also we'd run out of sugar as I'd just used our supplies to make batch two of elderflower cordial and champagne. But Louis' topping of fresh strawberries, Nuttella, brown sugar and orange juice was and inspired alternative that he's displayed on his T-shirt for the remainder of the day.
