Simple pancakes

A lazy Sunday morning, when the time feels like it is going in slow motion and no one’s complaining, those are the days I feel like making pancakes, warm pancakes, drizzled with golden syrup, topped with favourites fruits, this is my kind of lazy Sunday morning brunch.

Now who doesn’t like a classic pancake?! I haven’t met a single person who said they don’t like pancakes! You make them many different ways and they are the perfect way to start a beautiful day.

My love for pancakes started in my best friends house, I stayed at her place one day and I remember she made these simple classic pancakes, topped with caramelised bananas. I still remember the way they tasted. I did recreate it at home many times. Now it has become our favourite Sunday morning breakfast.

My parents came for a visit here to Ireland two years ago and I made the same pancakes for them and after that my Mom would sweetly ask me will you make pancakes for me, I would smile and make it for her :)

When I tell my husband do you want me to make pancakes he will jump out of his bed :D my little boy says Yay! When I say the word pancakes.

This recipe is very very simple, but the end results are pure heavenly goodness!! I have used self rising flour for this, you can use gluten-free flour as well. Use any toppings of your choice, I have topped mine with fresh berries, chia seeds and pure honey.
