Rhubarb semolina pancake.

May 10, 2016

You might have seen on Instagram that I got my hands on some rhubarb from my mum’s garden and besides my favorite rhubarb recipe so far (hello summer drink!), I wanted to make something else. Something new. I was looking online and got distracted, came back to searching recipe and found something for strawberries. A strawberry pancake. Besides that I don’t have any strawberries I thought it looked delicious and made a rhubarb semolina pancake instead.

Cool story, bro. I know. Very coherent and interesting. I know. That’s just who I am. My life’s interesting like that.

Before I ironically bash myself some more, please enjoy this recipe. The sourness of the rhubarb goes so well with the sweet semolina.

I could’ve just eaten the whole thing before I remembered that my boyfriend would be really cross with me if I do.

So I hid it in the oven. Hiding things from yourself might sound stupid but it actually works really well. Out of sight out of mind. Until later when I return from bouldering and looking everywhere to find something to eat.
