Finally, the elder trees are blooming again. My dad used to always make me pancakes out of the elder flowers, but now that I'm moved out I needed to take matters into my own hands. Yesterday, I went for a walk in the forest with the sole purpose of finding an elder. Then I made the dough, which is basically like a pancake dough (eggs, flower, milk and salt) except that you add a bit of beer. Then all you need to do is dunk the flowers in the dough and fry them in a pan. The perfect dessert for this season!
