I am obsessed with collecting recipes for pancakes.
I very rarely make breakfast, let alone pancakes from scratch, and yet here I am, just basically looking through my favourite food blogs in search of all the pancake recipes I could find. After coming across about a dozen I liked, I asked myself, what on earth is my purpose for amassing these recipes anyway? So one fine morning, I dragged myself out of bed in time to get a stack of pancakes on the breakfast table before everyone else stirred from their sleep. Given that we’re all early risers at home, I am not kidding when I say I woke up pretty much at daybreak. To be honest, because we have a house cook who makes our meals everyday (coupled with the lovely bed-weather we’ve been enjoying lately), I was sorely tempted to just sleep in and wake up on my regular Sunday hour. But I guess there would be no point in gathering all these pancake recipes if I don’t make them. And you know what they say, once you’ve taken those first few steps out of bed, you’re not likely to go back again. No wait. They don’t really say that, do they?
I’ve always found boxed pancake mixes a tad too sweet for my taste, although I admit to having a favourite brand of whole wheat pancakes which I whip up if I absolutely need a quick pancake fix. However I can honestly say, this is one of those things that you learn to make from scratch and end up preferring over store-bought.
