The Wonder Years..how much of this life can we do? : Are we too lazy to make our own pancakes?

Are we too lazy to make our own pancakes?

I just met Aldo Zilli this morning, as he was in Olney home of the oldest and longest running pancake race in the  UK.  He was in good spirits, appearing on ITV's Daybreak (as did I). It's also his wedding anniversary and he told me his fave filling is a savory one, more of a lasagne styley. I asked Aldo  what he thought about the fact that most Britons are apparently too lazy on Pancake Day to make a mix of flour and eggs, opting for all-in-one mixes. Demand for ready-made batter mixes – to which users just add water – has doubled in the past three years. A spokesman said “These days, as society tries to make everything simpler, it seems many more of us are opting to make pancakes from a mix rather than use the old fashioned way.” Come on people!

Aldo didn't seem to think it was a problem, which surprised me but he did go on to say it's so easy to make them, there's only three ingredients after all. I hope we don't become SO time poor that we end up not knowing any of these skills. With only 3 in 10 young people being able to cook anything in the kitchen long gone are the joyous days of Home Economics where you'd carry your basket home with your precious eggs au gratin! Surely we should all have one signature dish, even if it is a pancake!
