My weekends are synonymous with pancakes as they happen to be the favorite choice of breakfast for my kids, especially topped with Nutella or chocolate sauce.This week I served them with stewed apples and honey and boy were they appreciated.
Really simple to make, you can whip them up in absolutely no time for breakfast or just as a quick snack.So the next time your child is hungry, make these with his favorite topping and see how he gobbles it down or just make it as a special treat for yourself...
