There is nothing like having homemade pancakes on the weekend!  Like many of you, working a full-time job and having an endless list of to do’s is something we can never escape.  So with those circumstances, having something quick such as oatmeal or grits is always ideal.  When it comes to the “Mental Rest Mode”, AKA “The Weekend”, I get extremely excited about cooking for my family.  Usually when we wake up we are all starving and ready for some grub!  Often I don’t like to toot my own horn, but let me be the first to tell you, these pancakes pass the sniff test!  But don’t take my word for it.  Try them for yourself and let me know what you think.  Enjoy!

Pair this recipe with this Easy Berry Fruit Salad for a light and refreshing start to your morning.

    Such a simple and basic pancake recipe. Definitely can’t go wrong. I love that it’s so easy, perfect for those mornings when I’m craving a pancake but the coffee hasn’t hit yet.

    I have been craving pancakes for dinner! I think I may treat myself to your recipe tonight! I like mine with a fried egg stacked on top. (I’m weird, I know!)

    So hard to beat a classic pancake. It’s been way too long since I made some for myself, but next time I do I’ll be using this recipe!

      Nothing beats a classic pancake on Saturday morning. Let me know if you try them out.
