These are truly world famous. I have made them for guests from England and the Netherlands as well as from Nova Scotia. I remember the first time I ever made them. I was a fairly newly wed when my husband asked me for pancakes. I very sweetly replied, " I can't make pancakes, I don't have any pancake mix." To which my husband answered, "Don't you have a cook book?" Thus begun my obsession of cooking things from scratch. ( I was 14 when I learned you could make a cake from scratch).
