Breakfast. I love it, you love it and my brother loves it. No…he seriously loves breakfast. He could eat it for every meal if allowed. To him, nothing’s better than a stack of pancakes, a pile of bacon and a mountain of scrambled eggs. It also helps that he has an extremely high metabolism… 🙂
When I was younger, we’d get up every Sunday morning and be welcomed with the delightful smell of waffles being made. It was wonderful, but I figured there were already so many recipes for various kinds of waffles out there that my recipe wouldn’t seem so special. So I’ve got something even better!
On Saturdays, I would help my Mom stir the pancake batter and peel apples to be cooked. But my favourite breakfast when I was a young one were puffed up oven pancakes. I think it was mostly because I was so fascinated by the fact that it’s flat when you put it in the oven, but comes out all risen…and…puffed up! Also, anything you can pour a healthy amount of maple syrup over is immediately one level up from anything else.
