american pancakes with maple syrup, makes a great breakfast. image: mikkel vang
225 g flour
1 tbsp baking powder
2 large free range eggs, beaten
300 ml milk
30 g melted butter, and some extra frying
2 tbsp of caster sugar
a pinch of salt
sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl.
in another bowl, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.
pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and beat with a fork until a smooth batter.
let the batter rest for a few minutes.
heat a frying pan over medium heat and add a knob of butter.
when the butter is melted, add a ladle of batter, or 2 if the frying pan is big enough.
it will seem very thick but this is how it should be.
wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both side are golden brown and the pancakes have risen about 1 cm thick, repeat until all the batter is used up.
serve with maple syrup

1 leg of lamb, about 2 kg
salt & pepper

mix the crushed garlic with the lemon zest, thyme and olive oil.
season the lamb with salt & pepper, rub the olive oil mixture into it and place in a roasting dish.
roast the lamb for an hour and 15 minutes if you want it pink, or for an hour and 30 minutes if you prefer well done.

last year i've posted a photo of the rhubarb in my garden, this year it seems to have died, it's nowhere to be seen…. i've immediately planted a new one though but i have to wait till next year before it can be harvested and eaten, i'll have to buy it at the farmer's market this year. i'm so looking forward to making a crumble with rhubarb and strawberries, but it's too early for strawberries so i roast the rhubarb stems in the oven sprinkled with sugar, zest of an orange and 2 vanilla pods, serve it with home made yoghurt ice-cream and it feels like spring has really begun. images: john dummer and mikkel vang
