It’s pancake Saturday! I’ve got a homemade dry mix (similar to the boxed mixes I grew up on) stored in the freezer, and whenever I want pancakes I just have to scoop some out and mix it with eggs and buttermilk (or clabbered milk, which is regular milk thickened with acid–because I refuse to buy buttermilk unless it’s marked down because it’s about to expire OR I actually need the whole pint, which is rare).
Yesterday I got a copy of The Perfect Scoop, by David Lebovitz, and I can’t wait to try some (ok, ALL) of his recipes. I feel like I’ve learned so much about making ice cream just from the first couple of flip-throughs. BUT–it’s 14 degrees outside right now, and that’s a little too cold for making ice cream–even for me. So I’ll be spending the afternoon making a café au lait angel food cake instead (and saving some of the egg yolks to make ice cream when the weather warms up later this week!).
I hope you all have a sweet, wonderful Valentine’s weekend. ♥
