Savoury Saturday

From he woke up this morning, Filip demanded we baked a pancake cake. He'd seen someone make one on children's tv, and wanted one for himself. Hubby was away on a football trainer course, and I didn't want an entire day alone with the kids to include a whining Filip - besides, there were som pancakes in the freezer - so I indulged him.
Different kids, different tastes, so half is creme au chocolat, the other is strawberry cream.

See? I actually thought it looked kind of cool... Unfortunately, the quads (all opting for the choc half) didn't really take to it, so settled on a bowl of corn flakes instead... Jakob and I thoroughly enjoyed the strawberry cream, as did hubby after he returned.
Jakob also made us a fruit-in-a-bag kind of thing; apples, pears and pineapple (= the fruits we had lying about) soaked in pineapple and strawberry sauces and wrapped in tin foil, cooking in the oven for about 20 minutes. His class had made it before on one of their trips to the forest this winter. Served with custard sauce. Very tasty!
Afterwards Anna and Mathias decided to make som artwork, while the others went out to play in the snow. All in all - we barely had time to notice hubby was gone before he came back!

Nice artwork. I'm not a big fan of pancakes (as I prefer waffles), but that looks pretty tasty.

Hello! Long time no see...

How exactly do you make a pancake cake? It looks very tasty, do you just pile lots of pancakes on top of each other?

Looks good enough to eat! I like the fruit idea. Anything to get me to eat more fruit.
