GUEST BLOG: Pancake day!

By guest blogger SARAH FANTHORPE

The residents of Hough End and Nell Lane gathered again at Buckthorn House to learn how to create deluxe savoury pancakes. Kim showed us how easy it is to make gluten-free fluffy pancakes using gram flour, which is made of chickpeas. When she explained that the batter consisted of only gram flour and water, I immediately thought of my Grandad's wallpaper paste, but the sumptuous flavours of fresh coriander and chilli flakes created a pancake like I've never tasted before. 

We learnt how to spice up re-fried beans using lime juice and garlic, and added a sprinkling of cheese to create our first mouthwatering pancake. The second filling consisted of rocket and feta cheese (pictured) - a melt-in-your-mouth experience after rolling and reheating.  

As usual, we shared recipes while eating our feast and everyone said they were looking forward to practising their pancake-flipping with their families.

I would like to say a big thankyou to all our regulars. You have been loyal and enthusiastic, and displayed fabulous washing-up skills!
