It’s a pretty crappy day this morning. Rain, rain, rain and a big drop in the temperature means that I need something to cheer me up! This pancake is the answer.
Very easy to make with a minimum of ingredients which are always in my pantry. Quick too, so I can get nearly instant gratification. The first time I made this recipe, there was no photo accompaniment, so I had no idea how it would look when it was done. It was a (spoiler alert!) puffy surprise. You could serve this with maple syrup which would be great and bacon which would be even better. But dusted with sugar and lemon is exactly what I needed today.
Here’s what happens…
