We have lots of different tastes and all of us have our favourite flavours and combinations.
My favourite is a couple of thick American-style pancakes, layered with whipped cream, maple syrup and caramelised bananas. I also enjoy them spiked with blueberries and topped with Greek yogurt. The Mister shares my taste and will have a stack of thick pancakes dripping in maple syrup.
H prefers his to be thin and crispy, the size of a dinner plate and drizzled with maple syrup. L is another thin & crispy pancake fan, he prefers to enjoy his with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a generous splodge of toffee sauce.
A is a girl after my own heart and likes her pancakes to be thick and fluffy, but dotted with white chocolate chips and a spread of lemon curd, with a swirl of squirty cream on top. E likes hers with a little dash of maple syrup & strawberries, although truth be told she'd just prefer to have the strawberries on their own.
J is a tween boy and therefore will happily have his pancakes covered in whatever he can find, I always make sure that we have a good selection of toppings available and he'll choose a different one for each pancake.
Do you have a favourite pancake recipe? My current favourite is Jamie Oliver's quick & easy 1 cup self raising flour, 1 cup of milk, 1 egg and a pinch of salt - though I do add a drop or two of vanilla essence to mine.
Get your frying pan nice & hot, add a knob of butter and then ladle in a scoop of batter for lovely thick pancakes.
We're having our pancakes for dessert after dinner tonight, I hope you all enjoy your pancakes today - whenever and however you have them!
