It’s Pancake Tuesday! I don’t know about you, but any excuse for breakfast for dinner and I’m all over it! I’m posting the popular pancake recipe from my first cookbook, Real Food For Real Families, which is a weekend tradition in our house. Try these Feelgood Flapjacks with my delicious, healthier Ain’t Jemima Syrup (recipe here). Why not make a double batch and freeze your pancakes? Then you can pop them into the toaster or toaster oven on a busy weekday morning.
