Pancakes make for a wholesome breakfast and are very versatile in how you can pair them. A drizzle of honey or maple syrup to keep it simple or some fresh fruits, fruit compotes, berries, whipped cream, chocolate sauce to make it a royal breakfast!

It is in fact very easy to put together a pancake recipe and if your kids like it, it can be a good option for a lunchbox meal too.

Few things to keep in mind

  • Batter: There is a difference in the batter prepared for pancakes and crepes. The pancake batter has a thicker consistency so that it doesn’t spread a lot and instead rises well while cooking.
