Decadent Pancakes

My little brother always asks for pancakes for breakfast.
Who am I to say no?
These pancakes are light, fluffy and delicious. All that you need to do – is drown them in maple syrup!

Before I learnt to cook, we used to rely on Dad for his famous pancakes – which in reality were actually rock cakes masquerading as pancakes – but I didn’t know any better ❤

This is a basic pancake batter, for variations see my other pancake recipes.

Serves 2 ~ (or 1 really hungry person) 😉
