For me, having pancakes for breakfast means it is most definitely the weekend. It requires a little bit — but not a lot — more effort than the bowl of porridge or smoothie I typically grab to start the day during the week.
Pancakes equate to the luxury of time to me. Time to prepare breakfast, listen to some music, sit down at the table to eat and time to not rush.
My current favourite pancake choices are:
1) Anything with two ingredients sounds like my kind of lazy weekend. These banana and egg pancakes are very tasty. I sometimes add a spoonful of buckwheat flour to add some texture.
2) This lovely recipe from The Little Green Spoon is also up there on my favourite pancake list.
Both recipes make quite a filling breakfast. You can add whatever you want – berries, nuts, sugar, cream.
