I love Sundays! It’s the only day I’m free from school and work. It’s my ultimate stay-at-home lazy day to be with the kids and have more “me” time. It doesn’t have to be filled with many fun things to do but it’s always a wonderful day to enjoy with my family. If there aren’t special occasions then I don’t usually have grand plans for the weekend, but I love making little surprise activities for the kids.
For the last couple of weeks, we’re making Sundays our Pancakes Day. Pancakes are not common in my place, in fact I can’t remember eating homemade pancakes when I was a kid. A typical Filipino early breakfast is pandesal bread and coffee, while common full breakfast meals include rice with eggs, hotdogs, ham, fish, noodles, corned beef, canned tuna, or bacon. So when I first introduced my kids to pancakes, it was kind of new to them but it instantly became their favorite. Of course who would not love pancakes in chocolate syrup? Hmmmmmmmm…
It was only last Sunday when I was able to finally took a pretty fine photo. To be honest, I still can’t make those perfect-looking pancakes ’til now, some days good while some days just okay. But my kids seem to find them oh so goood every single time. I guess the secret is in that smiley chocolate syrup. 🙂
Now let me share how I prepare my kids’ favorite pancakes. I’m sure anyone can do this even if you’re not a big fan of cooking like me.
And because I suck in the kitchen world, I completely rely on one-step pancake mix than going about the messy route of having to measure a cup of this and a tablespoon of that. Instead, I just need to add water and I’m good to go. Easy as 1,2,3!
- Magnolia Pancake Plus with Chocolate Syrup (200g)
- Non-stick pan
- Non-stick spatula
- Large spoon
- Brush pan with oil and preheat at medium-high setting.
- Mix Pancake and 2/3 cup of water until free from big lumps. Pour about 1/8 cup batter onto heated pan.
- When edges look dry, turn pancakes over and cook until golden brown.
- Serve with syrup. (Makes 12 mini pancakes)
That’s it. You can also add maple syrup or top off with banana slices. I’m sure you can be more creative than me.
Now excuse me, I have to go and prepare for today’s pancakes. Enjoy your sweet Sunday! 😉
