My chief helper Heidi loves pancakes , and what’s not to love about them?
It’s become our Sunday morning ritual, only today we had them on Friday – because we can!
My wonderfully talented husband, who is brilliant in the kitchen has always placed slice banana in his pancakes. It is such a simple way to spice up a pancake with that sweet, caramelised banana flavour.
It is only fitting, in Australia, we have an alternative to traditional plum pudding … ice cream plum pudding.
I first tried this at my mother-in-laws house for Christmas a few years ago. I am not a big fan of traditional plum pudding (unless I smother it in custard and brandy butter – which is guaranteed to smother my body with the equivalent in fat stores!). But this version is absolutely amazing, and so much more appropriate for a southern hemisphere (hot) Christmas.
