[quote="JennyH94,

I make a tropical version which has shredded coconut and lime rind in the pikelet mix. I serve the pikelets with a spoonful of lime curd and a dollop of whipped cream - fabulous!

Tia - the Dulce de Leche sounds beautiful and really versatile! Thanks for this tip. It would be a great topping on the pikelets, again with a dollop of cream and a slice of banana. I'll look out for it at our speciality food stores.[/quote

Right! That 's it! Enough is enough! My tummy is rumbling! Looking to books flight to Oz now Jenny, get those pike lets in the oven. See you soon.;)
Send me a PM when you're on your way John and I'll start mixing the batter ! Cheers!

Sorry, asking what is it? I want to think it's fish (we have pikes in Canada, so a little pike?) or something else...

Hi Lynne - as pilgrim b explained, the pikelet batter is similar to a pancake batter and here in Australia they're typically an afternoon tea treat. Everyone, from the smallest tot, to our precious 'oldies', enjoys a pikelet. If you google 'pikelet images' you'll see that you can be really creative with toppings and even the colour of the batter itself ... I'm thinking blue and yellow 'Camino' pikelets! What a hit they'd be with hungry pilgrims at afternoon tea time!

I'm sure you'd have something similar in Canada ... what do you call them?

Here's another image of pikelets, spread with butter and sprinkled with 100's and 1,000's ... the littlies (and not-so littlies!) all love them!



Cheers!

Oooh, looks good!!! I especially love the idea of lime and cream! We have just regular pancakes here, flour/water/milk/butter/eggs (of course with Maple Syrup - which is de rigueur because we live in Canada!), but my husband is Finn and he makes pannukakua. A watery version that is kind of like a crepe. A big favorite in our family....Especially the next day when they are rolled up in peanut butter and jam or brown sugar and butter. Or whipped cream and strawberries.....
We are a decadent lot, aren't we?! It's a wonder we aren't rolling down the camino........... Rollin', rollin', rollin' down the camino.....

Wow, Lynne! Pannakakua ... sounds gorgeous! I particularly love the idea of eating them the next day rolled up with peanut butter and jam or the brown sugar and butter - yummm.

Rollin', rollin', rollin' (down the Camino) - reminds me of the theme song from the old TV series 'Rawhide' ... perhaps some of the Forum wags can finish the sentence for some further amusement on this Fun Thread!

Yes
Strange that flapjack is a familiar word in the U.S. Most people could not tell you what they are ...except as another word for pancakes.
I dont think you hear the word except in old Western movies.

Amazing how different these Flapjacks are all over the world. In the UK they are a healthy nibble to eat with your flask of tea as you take a picnic out on your days walk!
Another delicious bite.

JennieH94 is this you telling us in a kinda like sideways way that you are here in the UK for our glorious spring drawing more arrows on the path around Hyde Park?
 
Camino(s) past & future
Camino Frances (2015)
While we were walkin the Camino in 2012 we met a lovely girl from Hungary as we walked to Roncavellas, she was full of life, had a funny turn of phrase and loved to laugh, as time went on everyone we met on the trail seemed to know her. We would meet up with her every few days, she became one of our Camino family. When we reached Los Arcos we stayed inAlbergue de la Fuente Casa de Austria, it was fairly busy in our dorm and there was only the top bunk above me left. Well our friend arrived in the dorm about 6.00pm and after greeting us and most of the rest of the room which she seemed to know, she said "Patreek would it be ok if I sleep on top of you tonight" well the whole dorm cracked up. How could I possibly refuse a request like that and not wishing to be churlish I said yes. :)
This one is my favorite so far. Hilarious!

I am pilgrim b! Flew back here from Fromista Friday 14th Feb - the Flapjack Fest was fab!

Seriously, the reason I'm in London is to run a series of workshops at Lord's on the subject of "Letting Go Of Disappointment" - sold-out sessions with my participants who are a mixed group of failed English cricketers and Barmy Army sad sacks ...

'Hope those furry ferrets that you spoke of above didn't find any foxes!

Cheers!

I see our lady won at the winter games we seem to be good at those she went down faster than fury ferrets follow foxes!

By the way is cricket the game they play with a hard ball or is that rounders? Is it that game when you have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game.?
If it is, I don't like that hard ball, I always dropped it on purpose at school but I enjoyed walking both ways just not the bit in between.

Are you still in Uk then ?

Maybe it's best for the Brits to rely on the 'gels' for the time being until all your lads can get themselves back into a winning frame of mind!
Thank you for the entertaining explanation re cricket etc - have you ever considered a role as a scriptwriter on 'Blandings'? You'd be a natural!
Glad to hear that your school days provide you with the odd happy memory pb!
Yes - in the UK all week - hoping for reasonable weather so I can get my workshop participants out on the cricket pitch for a "Face Your Fear" exercise ...

A special message of thanks to our dear Forum friend, pilgrim b in relation to his Yorkshire flapjack recipe so kindly shared earlier on in this thread -

Today husband Steve and I had a quick visit from his sister Lynne, and husband Ross, who called in to see us on their way through from Canberra to Sydney to see their son and his family. They didn't have much time, so we had all the fixings for a sandwich lunch ready, and a sweet treat to finish off lunch with ... yes! pilgrim b's Yorkshire flapjacks! They were absolutely gorgeous - so chewy and crunchy at the same time. Lynne demanded the recipe immediately!

Here's a couple of pics - the first one is a close-up of these baked gems, and the second one features Steve, Lynne and Ross, about to tuck in!

Seeing as you enjoyed those delicacies so much JennieH94 Peregrina b thought you may consider making Yorkshire Brack are you ready here goes: Ingredients 8oz sultanas 4oz raisins 4oz currants 6oz demara sugar, a good quarter pint of hot Yorkshire tea one large egg 8oz selfraising flour.
Mix together Dry fruit sugar and hot tea cover and leave overnight. Then next day add the egg beat well then stir in the flour, grease one panloaf tin line the base with greeseproof paper, place mixture into the tin and bake for roughly one hour fifteen minutes at 160 c /325f /gas mark 3. Serve cold and buttered, keeps a long time in foil. (Fat free for Cardiac probs too) Oz tea will do if you can't get Yorkshire but must be hot to swell the fruit.

Hi peregrina b and pilgrim b - thank you so much for your Yorkshire Brack recipe. It sounds fantastic! I love anything with dried fruit - so delicious. I'll be making this recipe soon and will post a pic of it when I do.

Just noticed this has had no posts since 2014 so the newcomers will not have had the benefit of some of these self deprecations.
i just started watching it since yesterday sir... i got stuck under 'red sockers rockers' which started by @domigee... thanks a million for her, my belly got exercise of too much laughter....
