The last few days have been so cold that we couldn’t get out of bed. The days became shorter and for three days I didn’t see the sun. I already miss the summer and the sun. All we want is to eat comfort food and stay in our cozy bed. We found a way to cheer up our day — cooking and baking.
We like to start our day with pancakes, eggs or bruschetta and finish it with comfort food like creamy soups, stews or pizza.
We have shared pancakes recipes on the blog before, but we have never shared a basic pancake recipes. And the fact is that sometimes you are just craving for some classic fluffy pancakes for breakfast. Something easy and quick to make.
I love everything about these pancakes. First, they are extremely quick and easy to make, with only a few basic ingredients that everyone has at hand, then, they turn out perfect each single time we make them, with a nice small round shape, and an amazing fluffy and light texture. And finally, this pancakes are delicious!
Our favorite topping for pancakes, is always honey. Because these pancakes are so fluffy, they absorb the honey right away, bringing a subtle sweet touch.
Luckily for us, we provide our honey from Miere BeeBee, our local farmer who has Wildflower honey. It is called Wildflower honey because it comes from all the flowers that bloom from May through June or July. Plus honey is a natural sugar since it is made from the nectar of flowers which your body can process better than granulated sugar.
