Things I Love Thursday: Pancakes

I have always loved pancakes. My husband can attest that I have a slight obsession. Sometimes when we would go out for lunch on Saturdays, we would have to go somewhere that serves breakfast all day so I could get my pancake fix.

Since moving to Scotland, I have been sorely deprived. They sell pre-made pancakes in little packs of four; these look like normal pancakes, but who wants to eat (let alone pay for) pre-made pancakes?

If you buy their version of pancake mix, you are really getting a weird breading for deep frying fish, or making a odd pastry. Nothing about this resembles pancakes. They include a recipe on the package for a runny mix that might resemble crepes if I could get it to cook right. Nope, definitely not pancakes.

Last week, Emily went to our local Costco, and guess what? They sell American pancake mix, good ol' Krusteaz! We have had pancakes so many times this week. They cooked right, they look right, and, best of all, they taste right. Now I have 10 pounds of pancake mix and can eat to my heart's content!


  1. Good find!!! We just tried a new recipe from scratch that is really good. They are sour cream pancakes out of Pioneer Woman's cookbook. If you are interested I can send you the recipe, or a link to someones blog. They are really easy to make - only a couple of ingredients!

  2. Oh yes, I love Krusteaz. We grew up on them - both pancakes and waffles - cuz my dad loved how fluffy they always turned out - good times! We often had waffles for supper and Krusteaz makes them great! Glad you were able to find some. (And oh my word - your header picture is GORGEOUS!)

  3. Where can I subscribe to your updates? I just skimmed through your posts about moving and settling in Scotland - am really fascinated and intrigued - its at the top of my list for places to visit. =) you can email me at:

  4. I'm so glad you found the mix!! I love pancakes too and have just tried starting a tradition of pancakes every Sunday morning--it makes the morning just a little more special. :-)

  5. Yeah, Mark stopped eating pancakes when we moved here too! I tried once or twice with no luck. Did you know the Scots eat those premade pancakes UN-warmed/toasted and often with butter or jelly on top? Like for a snack?
