Last night after making the Buttermilk Scribble Cake I had a cup of Buttermilk left over. As luck would have it the side of the buttermilk carton had a recipe for blueberry and lemon pancakes which required one cup of Buttermilk. I didn’t have the berries but modified the recipe to be lemon pancakes. I whizzed it up a night and left it made up in the fridge ready for the morning, a trick I learned from Nigella. However I forgot to tell Justin about the mix and only remembered after I saw him finishing his breakfast. So he took Bina and Lido up to the shower and I made myself a pancake, with Thomi running around my legs. Nigella is ever so sensible to make the mix the night before.
