Strawberries in our farmer's market, so I made oven pancakes and used my favorite spoon.

And while we're on the topic of those spoons, quick question about the one you see in the sugar bowl.

Here's a photo of the strawberry spoon, the sugar spoon, and a pair of tongs that match that sugar spoon:

They're all by Gorham. I've always seen the pattern on the sugar spoon and tongs described as "olive." The tongs always seem to be described as "olive tongs," and the spoon is often described as an olive spoon. But I suspect those fruits are cherries, not olives. The leaves are serrated, like cherry leaves, not smooth like olive leaves. On the tongs the fruit has a notch, like cherries, though on the spoon it's smooth. The spoon works very well for sprinkling cinnamon sugar on pancakes.

What do you think? Olive spoon or sugar spoon? What are the fruits supposed to be?

M-MM-M-M looks good.

Based on the leaf I'd say cherry.

I've never heard of oven pancakes but they sure look good - and so does the silver!

Thanks, Scott & June!

Oven pancakes are yummy and easy to make--look for recipes for "David Eyre pancake" or "Dutch baby pancake."

Clearly next time I need to serve them with cherries.
