Recipe of the month: Cinnamon Pancakes with Fresh Fruit




I love pancakes and I love fresh fruit. Combine them together and you can never go wrong! Pancakes are delightfully versatile in that you can combine them with a variety of sweet or savoury ingredients and they taste great. The best part about pancakes is how easy they are to make. I am sure there are hundreds of different recipes for pancakes out there but I always stick to this particular one. I have slightly modified the recipe to suit my taste. I make sure to measure my ingredients each time so the pancakes turn out consistently good.
