I'm sure I'm not the only one who struggles with what to cook for the Satanic Holidays to celebrate with feasts and dinners, so I've decided to make a thread where we can explore ideas and post different recipes here for people to use on the Holidays, if they so desire.
I've got a couple recipes from childhood that I can share, and a few other recipes online that are really good. The wording of my childhood recipes are a little bit odd compared to more modern ones since they come from an old country house style cook book.
(Essentially mini pancakes)
- 25g of butter
1 tablespoon of golden syrup
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of milk
1 & 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of cream of tartar
2) Add the sugar and eggs and beat until mixed, with a rotary beater.
3) Add the milk, then shake in the sifted flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
4) Beat very briefly with the beater, until there are no floury lumps, but stopping before the mixture is smooth. It is important not to overmix at this stage.
5) Heat a large pan, preferably with a non-stick surface. If it has a thermostat, heat to 180*C or 350*F. If not, heat until a drop of water on the surface breaks into several smaller drops, and these run around the pan. Then spray or butter it lightly. 6) Spoon a household tablespoon of batter into the pan, spreading it into an even circle.
7) Turn the pikelet when bubbles break, and the underside is golden brown. Cook until golden on that side too.
8) Remove the pikelet from the pan, and serve warm on a plate with butter or syrup. Cook the next pikelet, and repeat until all the batter is gone.
- 50g of butter, melted
1 cup of milk
1 & 1/2 cups of self-raising flour
3 tablespoons of sugar
2) Heat a smooth metal surface (frypan or griddle) until a drop of water dances around the pan (to 190*C or 350*F), then spray or butter it lightly.
3) Tip about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan, spreading it into an even circle.
4) Turn the pancake when bubbles break, and the underside is golden brown. Cook until golden on that side too.
5) Remove the pancake from the pan, and serve warm on a plate with butter or syrup. Cook the next pancake, and repeat until all the batter is gone.

This recipe is also really good as just a cake too.
The pastry from this recipe can be used to make biscuits and such as well. The way it tells you to combine the flour and butter is a little weird. You can just use your hands and crumble the butter and flour together with your fingers in a "making money" motion (if that makes any sense). It ends up looking a little like corn meal once it's combined together.
P.S. Shadowcat, please share your dinner recipes!
