my top five recipes for fruity american pancakes.


Other than the trendy avocado and poached eggs on toast pairing, you can't beat a stack of freshly flipped pancakes for a lazy breakfast or weekend brunch. In particular, I've mastered a basic 5 ingredient American pancake recipe which makes the perfect fluffy base for a whole host of toppings. What's more, I've found using non-stick hot plate and a tiny spritz of sunflower spray gets great results that are all warm at once. You can also get lots of frozen fruit, or of course freeze the fresh leftovers to use at a later date!

So, why wait until February to enjoy your favourite combination? As part of this month's collaboration with Central England Cooperative, here are a few healthy pancake recipes with delicious combinations that go towards your five a day.
