As a follow-up to my previous fiesta friday post, I would like to bring some delicious pancakes to The Novice Gardner’s Party! These pancakes were made on request, as we were all looking for a sweet, one-off treat to bring the week to a close. But I hadn’t expected them to work out quite as well as they did! These pancakes were soft, fluffy, and so easy to make! To be honest these might be the quickest and easiest pancakes I have ever made, and the buttermilk in the mixture gives them this rich flavour that works so well with maple syrup! Although my brother still insists that these worked better with jam.
So if you’re looking for a quick, and unhealthy breakfast treat at the end of the week, or simply looking for something to cheer you up on the weekend, or to surprise a gluten-intolerant friend/lover/relative with, I suggest these. We certainly had a good time with them. My dad even got involved, insisting on helping whisk the batter to make sure there were no remaining lumps. It was a great moment for us all to de-stress, and just to be laughing and eating together as a family.
So, I’m wishing you all a happy friday and a lovely, pancake filled weekend!
