Ma's Pancakes
Written by Gryphon

Never enjoyed breakfasts until I tried Ma’s Pancakes. Ma was my best mates mum and our neighbour. She cooked these for us one Sunday brunch and that was it. HOOKED. They can be topped with so many ingredients, you could experiment for years and not have two meals the same. Whether it be Maple Syrup, SugarPlain Greek yogurt (or crème fraiche) and fresh berries or Almond, peanut, or cashew butter, and sliced banana. Not to forget the fruit options, fresh chopped peaches, honey, and chia seeds or pumpkin seeds. full-fat coconut milk, chopped mango, chopped walnuts. The list does quite simply go on and on.
