Eating pancakes with sausage, apple sauce or syrup - sounds weird but I expect - if it is what you are used to then that is the way to do it.

Pancakes are dead simple to make, just your basic batter, cooked in butter though adding a little oil makes them crisper, spreading the batter thinly so the inside is not doughy.

In my family they are splashed with lemon juice and given a sprinkle of sugar, then rolled up and kept hot in a covered dish in the oven - if not covered they can go dry. Once enough have been made they can be served, with more lemon juice and sugar. The pancake maker should keep their share separately otherwise by the time they have their apron off and their hands washed there would be none left.
