    receipt vs. recipe
    you’ve probably got some Italian ancestry – the word in Italian is same for receipt and recipe! (ricetta)
    and heggs I don’t use them in my pancakes!!!! or is this computer speak for heneggs?
    (perhaps I should run away and hide now)

    I suspect I was thinking of Elinor Fettiplace's Receipt Book, which graces my kitchen. Sadly my own receipt book is not nearly so extensive.  As for heggs, they come out of 'ens.

  5. I concluded that ‘heggs’ stood for Hen’s eggs and if duck eggs were required you would have written ‘deggs’ – in Australia the locals call their hens ‘chooks’ so it would need to be ‘ceggs’.

  6. Recipe has been used alongside receipt since the eighteenth century in the sense of cookery instructions, gradually replacing it over time.

  7. I will try this! I will try it tonight.. Arh, maybe not before tomorrow! When I have tried it, I’m gonna write in here.. thank you for the recipe 🙂

  8. Dear Kelvin, we have no ‘heggs’ in Aotearoa/new Zealand.
    Will ‘Iggs’ do instead?
    n.b. Kiwis have the habit of pronouncing e as i , i as u, e as a – as thus:
    eggs becomes iggs, and fish and chips becomes fush end chups!

  1. […] we should include the odd recipe in the blog: after all Kelvin Holdsworth has included his “famous pancake recipe” and Fr Z’s blog includes his lentil soup recipe and many photographs of his memorable meals. […]
