These thick and fluffy pancakes are truly delicious and moreish: Make a stack of these on lazy weekends for breakfast…your family will love you for this and it will most definitely disappear within a pancake flash!
Pancakes are quick, easy and super versatile. This recipe’s serving suggestion of bacon, syrup or honey and berries or grated cheese is just that: A suggestion.
There really are no real restrictions on toppings and why even restrict these yummy mini pancakes to breakfast time? Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips or caramel would make for the perfect dessert or tea-time treat.
Some more topping suggestions? Here we go:
- Fresh sliced fruits like bananas, mangoes, kiwi, strawberries, pineapple, or pears.
- Blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries
- Peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, or Nutella
And of course, one could be creative and add nuts, cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to the batter to elevate the flavour.
You can easily make your batter the night before. Just cover it with a lid or plastic wrap, refrigerate and you’re ready to flip away the next morning. Enjoy!
