Flippin Great Pancakes
Written by Gryphon

These are so easy to prepare and cook, they have become a firm favourite at breakfast and brunch. Flippin Great Pancakes are a family sport with the children and grandchildren helping out. I use bacon or ham to top the pancakes but fruit is a lovely alternative. Try using raspberries, blueberries or blackberries.
