This  good sized vintage 'Pyrex' mixing bowl from the USA has really funky daisy patterns on it, and is just right for using or displaying in your retro kitchen. With pancake day coming up next month, why not invest in a new mixing bowl now?

Vintage Federal USA pyrex mixing bowl from yay retro!

Cinnamon Apple Pancakes:


4oz plain flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 pint milk

1 egg

1 tbsn oil

Oil for frying


4 very large Bramley (cooking) apples peeled cored and sliced

1/4 tspn cinnamon

6oz demerera sugar

4oz butter for frying

For the filling, put the apples, cinnamon, suagr and butter in a saucepan and simmer gently for about 20 minutes or until the apple is tender. (keep warm to one side)

Sift the flour and salt in the mixing bowl, gradually add the egg, oil and enough milk to beat to a smooth fairly thin batter. Heat a very little oil in a frying pan, drop 2 tbspns of the batter into the centre of the pan and tilt to spread the batter. Cook for 1 minute, then turn the pancake over and cook the ohter side for 1 minute. Turn the pancake out of the pan and make nie or ten more in teh same way keeping them hot in the oven.

Now divide the filling between the pancakes and roll them up. Pile onto a warm serving dish and sprinkle with some sugar and cinnamon. Serve with cream or ice cream - yum!
