I love pancakes – their light, delicate texture, warm out of the pan drizzled with maple syrup and topped with fresh fruit, they make a completely decadant breakfast. Unfortunately, the only people who eat pancakes/pikelets/crepes in my house are myself and my brother, so I don’t make them very often.
My boyfriend however, is quite a big fan of these fluffy circles of golden goodness, so when I stay the night I usually make these simple pancake recipe as they don’t take long, are extremely easy, and can be finished before he completely wakes up (I’m a bit of an early riser).
Easy Simple Pancake Recipe
They’re not fancy, there’s no buttermilk, no berries, no butter – but they taste lovely and fluffy and make a very quick and easy simple breakfast menu!
Oh, by the way – another brill way to try pancakes recipe is to sprinkle a little granulated sugar over the top, then a generous squeeze of lemon juice! Roll it up and munch away, the lemon juice soaks into the pancake and the sugar helps to offset possible tartness! Woo!
