Schmarm ~ or what to do with left over pancakes!

My mother always cooked with a view to having leftovers hence I am not a lover of such. However, the one I do love and so do my children is Schmarm.




Basically, Schmarm is old pancakes (or even just cooked pancakes) cut into squares and fried in roughly equal parts of butter and sugar until candied. It never works out the same for me because I am never sure of the ingredients ratio but the kids always love it! It is delicious with pureed apricots or other fruit for a healthier meal.

Cheerio!

P.S. Schmarm is Mum's name for this. Do you know of any other?

  2. Hello, just wanted to say thank you soooo much for the comment you left on my blog. I was starting to think that I was the only one who was'nt keen on tagging and mass awards! phew!
    I think that if you want to give someone an award, then give them one but don't add conditions and rules to it.
    I think I'm just getting a bit stroppier in my old age ( I hit the big 4 0 last year!)anyway thanks for the support, it was much appreciated and needed!

  11. My great aunt used to cook a dish called Schmarm, but it was more like "scrambled" pancakes with chopped apple bits. This was pancake batter mixed with the apple bits and lightly scrambled on the grill instead of forming it into pancakes. We just loved it!
