So everyone’s talking about Valentine’s day coming up next week but we’re more concerned about the fact it’s pancake day on tuesday…
So here we have our amazing fluffy american style pancakes, this is a no fuss recipe that makes lovely light, tasty pancakes every time. These don’t just have to be confined to 1 tuesday a year, they’re great for brunch and don’t need much preparation. (And if you have them for brunch it means you can drink mimosas…)
There are endless ways to enjoy a pancake and everyone has their favourite. We went for some classic and tasty combinations like crispy bacon and maple syrup (can’t go wrong with that one), strawberry with chocolate sauce and whipped cream, ice cream with fresh blueberries and crushed pistachios and a layered creation of peanut butter, sliced banana and toffee sauce.
If you add fruit that makes them healthy, right….?
We also thought it was time to attempt doing a video for our blog. It’s something we’ve been thinking about doing for a while now and we aim to do longer full recipe videos in the future, but for now we are having a play around with little clips to get to grips with filming & editing. Please appreciate the sexy music (we love it, nothing better than being seduced by bacon & syrup)

Just a few pancakes…
You can make your pancakes whatever size you like, we made medium sized ones and stacked 4 together, but you could do them bigger and just have a couple or make them tiny and have mini stacks so you can try out a few flavour combinations.
