Officially hailed as ‘one of the best things you’ve ever made Mum!’  I reckon this is a recipe you don’t want to miss out on.  A twist on the classic Millionaires Shortbread but with a brilliant chocolate caramel instead.  Four full batches in our house this week (and I’m sorry to admit I only gave one of those away) – better add the ingredients to your shopping list!

Scotch Pancakes

Pancakes 017

Ooh hoo hoo!  Tomorrow is Pancake Day!  Always an event in our house, everyone wants a turn at flipping, tossing, pouring the batter, everyone ends up with a burn from the frying pan, tears as they’re not as good as flipping pancakes as they imagined in their head and arguments break out randomly in the frustration of having to wait in a queue of 5 for actually getting a pancake on their plate!
