Pancake Party…

There are a few things every year that I religiously celebrate. Apart from Christmas, pancake day is right up there. It brings back such strong childhood memories – every year we used to just have plates of thin, soft, crispy edged pancakes drowned in sugar and lemon. Years later when Pete decided to treat me with savoury pancakes I was so disappointed! I’m not a big fan of savoury pancakes but yesterday I stumbled on this recipe and could be a convert…

Jamie’s Big Brunch pancakes, with French Guy Cooking

I’m a huge fan of brunch recipes so it didn’t take much convincing for me to consider trying this, even as a dinner recipe. That lead me to these, Crepes and salted butter caramel. A perfect end to my favourite food festival ever.

So, who’s having pancakes tonight?


Today I also have a little message to pass on from Anna and the team at Any Other Woman:

On 8th March, it’s International Women’s Day 2014. On Any Other Woman we traditionally celebrate IWD with a day of posts on a theme relevant to being a woman. You can see previous posts here.

This year, on Friday, we want to do something a little different. We want to run snippets of advice throughout the day from our readers. And our question is this:

What advice would you give the next generation of AOW readers?

What do you wish someone could have told you? Email (, or tweet @AnyOtherAnnaK / @AnyOtherAisling whatever advice you’d like to give – it can be a few words, a paragraph or a whole post.

Get involved readers and if you don’t have any wisdom to impart, make sure you head over on Friday and read what the AOW community have to say.


Friday Food: Lamb Tikka with Curried Cauliflower pancakes

This morning I thought it was time for something savoury and in a bold vote of confidence in the English weather, I thought this recipe, the final one from the One Brand event Gemma attended would be perfect, as it has the word ‘Barbecue’ in it. 🙂

Created by Simon Rimmer especially for the One Brand.

Pancakes – 1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets – blanched
4 salted anchovies, finely chopped
8 beaten One Good Eggs
100g dry breadcrumbs
50-75g plain flour
75g grated pecorino
Tablespoon curry powder
100g ricotta
800g cubed lamb loin (large cubes)
100ml natural yoghurt
Juice 1 lime
2 cloves crushed garlic
25mm piece ginger, finely chopped
15g ground coriander
5g ground cumin
5g ground garam masala
5g paprika
Juice 1 lemon mixed with 100g butter

Serve with cucumber raita and coriander blended with vinegar


  • Pancakes – fry the cauliflower and anchovies over med heat for 2-3 mins until soft, stir regularly. Put in a bowl.
  • Add all the other ingredients, stir, but don’t worry about cauliflower lumpy bits, they’re supposed to be there.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the mix into a fry pan with hot oil, cook 3 mins each side
  • Combine the marinade ingredients, coat the lamb well, thread onto wooden skewers and cover and chill for at least 2 hours.
  • After they’ve marinated place on a medium heat on the BBQ, baste with the butter and lemon, and turn when golden.
I love spicy stuff so will be keeping this on file for the future. And don’t forget your One Good Eggs for breakfast this weekend!
