Breakfast/ Kids/ Recipes


My kids love pancakes. If they could, they would have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A while ago when it was Pancake Tuesday, I made pancakes for dinner, and we had all the trimmings. The kids thought that was ace and have since requested when can we have that again!

I am always on the look out for a yummy pancake recipe. I have tried a few and have even tried putting together my own recipe. I know when the pancakes haven’t turned out as the kids will tell me that they weren’t that good, or they were better than the last pancakes I made. They are very good at telling me yay or nay. I have my own taste testers!

I came upon this recipe while looking on Pinterest and decided to give this one a go. Well, the pancakes turned out great. They were fluffy and soft. They rose quite well and tasted really good. We like our pancakes fluffy and to have a bit of height. The kids said that these were the best pancakes that I have made so far.

      Hi Brittnei, I feel the same way! When I go back and look at my photos I really just want to get back into the kitchen and start baking. I love having fruit on my pancakes. It makes them a little bit healthier don’t you think, he-he! xx
