Pancakes for dinner?!

Heck yes! Today is Pancake day, traditionally it’s feast day before lent because you fast for the 40 days lending up to Easter.

The kids are so excited to have breakfast for dinner tonight.

We make this recipe weekly and Glen is the best pancake chef.

My mother-in-law shared this recipe with us and it’s one of our favourites.

I suggest you do not over mix if you want your pancakes to be light and fluffy.

Try it out and let me know what you think!
