*Or as I grew up saying “pannenkoeken”
Hey everyone 👋 y’all know what day it is today… PANCAKE DAY, I have no idea how this day came about, how it marked our calendars & why 🤔 BUT if you do know then let me know in the comments 👇. Making & eating pancakes is one of my favourite memories from my childhood (for those of you who don’t know what country I was born in you’ll wanna read this post) I remember smothering mine in nutella & strawberry jam 🍓 (not the same one but ya know what I mean). For some reason ALL my friends seem to love their pancakes with lemon & sugar… I can’t say I’ve ever tried that though 🙈
The Recipe – Serves 8 – (16 pancakes)
Prep: 25min Cook: 18min
