Nothing says “weekend” like pancakes for breakfast. When you see how simple it is to whip them up from scratch, you’ll wonder why you never did it before.

When I first made hubby these pancakes, he was just amazed how delicious his breakfast was tasting, without to know I had made them from scratch he asked; did you make these yourself? I proudly agreed, with a big-old-smile on my face.

All I can say is; try this recipe and you will never buy ready-made pancake mixes from the store again! They are fluffy and super delicious, great with any topping – if syrup, butter or homemade strawberry jam (I like mine with my homemade strawberry jam).
