Sometimes you just want to treat yourself to an indulgent breakfast. Not for a crowd, or a weekend brunch, but just for you! I certainly do. Pancakes are my favourite breakfast. In fact, I can say with confidence that I would happily eat them for every meal.
The love affair with pancakes for breakfast began in the USA, during my first time to the country with my family wayyy back in the year 2000 when we visited Florida. We drive down to the Sizzler most mornings of the week we spent in Orlando where they would make pancakes to order!! I mean, talk about heaven!
My favourite pancake breakfast ever was when I was in New York City in 2007 and my parents treated us all to breakfast in the Waldorf Astoria. Best blueberry pancakes EVER! With your order came two small bottles of maple syrup with a custom Waldorf Astoria label, I still have one of them on my souvenir shelf. Every time I’ve visited the States since that trip to Florida what I have most looked forward to is their breakfasts, which I now frequently recreate at home.
The best thing about this recipe is that it makes the perfect amount for a healthy portion for one, as a brunch. Served with some crispy grilled bacon and a dousing of maple syrup and you are set up for the day. Pancakes for one – a genius idea! (more…)
