Well I don’t know about you but when I was growing up pancakes were a special treat and we would have them for our evening meal and only occasionally, so of course it was a real treat when it did happen. Of course now that I am a mum and the one who does a lot of the cooking, well I now know what a lot of work it is to cook the pancakes. We would always have the ones that are like crepe’s, you know the real thin ones and we would put lemon juice and sprinkle sugar on them. But now I like having them for breakfast, with strawberries and natural yogurt, I make the fat, fluffy ones and they are so easy to make. I use Jamie Oliver’s recipe which is real easy and you can find it here.
A little browner than I normally like but hey they still taste good!
The other recipe I have found that I want to try is this Homemade Waffle mix and you will find the recipe here. As yet I haven’t gotten around to making it as I need to buy some of the ingredients but I really like the idea of this. Pre making the mix and keeping it in a large jar until you want your waffles, then when you are ready all you have to do is use the appropriate amount of the mix and then add your wet ingredients. How easy is that? A nice quick, healthy breakfast, you couldn’t ask for anything better. Let me know what you think of this waffle mix.
My waffle maker which is in the shape of a penguin, I can see myself having a couple of these for brekky.
