Pancakes. Nothing screams it's the weekend more than pancakes. Pancakes mean sticky messy fingers for lickin' . Pancakes turn you back into a kid when life's getting heavy. A good pancake recipe is essential.

This is a pancake recipe that is quick and simple. Nutritious and filling but they won't leave you rolling out of your chair. Even after a couple  four or five. Seriously... it's pancakes. Who stops at two?

I use a blend of buckwheat and spelt flour to create a pancake thats smooth but not too buckwheaty. A bit of vanilla and cinammon to add some pizzazzzzz. They're quiet similar to french crepes.

I made mine up with yogurt, local honey, berries, banana, walnuts and almonds. But you can go with your favourite toppings. This recipe is just a simple base.

If you make these the night before you couple roll them up with peanut butter and banana and have them as breakfast on the go :) I'm such a fan of breakfast a la bus and extra time lying in. I've been on a big pancake kick this week because work experience was so tiring I needed the extra sleep.
