The alternative pancake...
This is a recipe my Nana use to make for me every pancake day when I was a little girl and you really can't beat it. They're delicious!

When I was back home for pancake day this year, I asked her to make it for me while I jotted down the recipe.

(Serves 4 hungry people)

    When the pan is hot, remove your finger from the bottom of the funnel and let the batter drizzel out - move the funnel in a circular motion to create nice big spirals.

    Using a finger to cover the bottom opening of a funnel, pour a generous 1/2 cup of batter into the funnel. Remove finger and release batter into hot oil moving funnel in a circular motion to form spiral. Fry until golden brown on each side. Drain on paper towels.

My boyfriend's mom gave me the recipe she uses... if you want to try more of a dessert version, you can drizzle the batter into the oil so that it is actually submerged completely. Flip it once or twice in there until it's lightly golden, then take it out and put it on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil. You can put a little powdered sugar on top too. Not too healthy, but yummy for a rare treat. Mmmm... Happy
