A Classic of American cuisine, pancakes are stacked tall, fluffy and best served with a drizzle of maple syrup. This easy recipe ticks all those boxes and takes around 15 minutes to prepare and eat. It is perfect for Pancake Day, a weekend brunch treat or in my case, MONDAYS!
This recipe that I’m going to give you is one of those infallible and seductive ones that I always make on Mondays. YES, ON MONDAYS!
As a chef, a entrepreneur and a mother, my weekends are always very busy with work, full of orders and the shop to be refilled, replacing all products. So Monday, is my most peaceful day, when I can have breakfast peacefully.
I prepare my pancakes early. The smell brings my whole family to the kitchen. That is when we get together and organize the week. I LOVE MONDAYS! IT’S PANCAKE DAY IN MY HOME!
