Pancakes are pretty much on the menu every weekend in my house and always get a thumbs up from whoever is sitting around the kitchen table. These thick, light and fluffy American style pancakes are super easy to make because you often only need one bowl to mix everything in. This means that you use this time to not only cook something up for your mum but can involve the kids too. It’s also mess-free (providing you don’t add extra syrup!) which makes it the perfect breakfast in bed.
