Victoria Mason

So, today I showed a friend at work Victoria's cufflinks, after an extended conversation about french cuffs. Whilst doing so, I realised she's finally begun her blog! It's fun and links to a whole bunch of other Australian designers of cute things.
It seems things are really kicking along for our favorite jeweler, which is just dandy.

Sweet things made me think of sweet foods ... heee. And something I haven't had for ages but is EXCELLENT in winter is Buckwheat Pancakes! These are worth saving to eat on holidays - as they're so bad for you you have to have some scheduled activity to follow them up.

Here's our recipe:

Buckwheat pancakes

3/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1 large egg
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon butter (melted)

Sift flours into bowl, stir through baking powder and sugar. Gently mix in egg, water and melted butter. Don't mix too hard, it wil toughen the mix. Some small lumps are ok. Let the mix sit for a couple of hours for yummiest pancakes.

Dont re-stir the mix after the sitting/resting but pour straight into a buttery frypan (ie - one you have melted some butter into) Flip when bubbles appear on the top side of the pancake (wait for half a dozen to appear, not just one or two) and brown other side.

Serve immediately, eat with loads of butter and a quality canadian maple syrup (don't be tight and buy 'maple flavoured syrup') and enjoy! (I know you will) They're also good with citrus, berries (blue ones) and almonds.
