Zulu is a bit more complicated than that. Inkosi means someone above you as in "Chief, King" Add other words to it and it gets a whole new meaning. Just aiming for chief here not Lord :P

I am intrigued about this practice. Just one piece of apple? What was the point of that? Why substitute with a paper towel? Attachment 12229

The half apple or carrot were just to spread a thin layer of new grease before pouring the batter for each new pancake. I am not sure why it was used but, it did give a hint of fresh flavor and it kept the pancakes from sticking. I use the paper towel for the same reason, to apply a thin layer of oil to prevent sticking. If I don't do this the pancakes begin to stick even though the pan I use is well seasoned.

Thank you. Along with this explanation and me rereading your other post, I understand now.

Thanks Vitauta. I hope they bring much joy and good eating to your table. And always remember, a good recipe is only a starting point. Add things to the batter, such as M&M's Peanuts, various fruit chunks, spices, etc.

I once made waffles out of Libby's pumpking pie filling, as per the recipe on the can. There was left over filling, so I added flour and baking powder. The waffles were amazing. Be creative. Once you understand the basics of what each ingredient does, it really opens up new applications for the cook.

If you've never made waffles from a yeast-raised batter, you don't know what you're missing. You've got to try it.
