We’re slowly figuring out our family traditions and one that has been a firm favourite in our household for a very long time is pancakes. When it was just my husband and I, he would make me crepes every weekend. My favourite were filled with ham and cheese. I think he may have won me over with those.
After ten years of crepes every weekend we’ve switched it up to… pancakes. We don’t do anything fancy. It’s just a simple pancake recipe that I’ve tweaked so that I can make it in one bowl measuring by weight (even the liquids). It also provides the perfect portion size for two adults and a toddler (or I suppose two very hungry adults).
What I really love about having pancakes every Sunday? It’s simple. I don’t have to think up lunch ideas, I know it can be made quickly in one bowl with minimal mess, and I know everyone is going to love it. No tantrums, no mess, no fuss.
I love the idea of a nice big brunch but that will come when I’m not insanely sleep deprived and when I know everyone will actually appreciate the effort on a Sunday morning. I don’t mind cooking great healthy meals the rest of the week, but give me one day to just throw together some plain flour, eggs and milk.
Get out a bowl, a whisk and a scale, cut up some fruit, pull out the maple syrup and sit back and enjoy these easy pancakes. And enjoy your weekend!
