Pancakes are an easy versatile meal which can be savoury or sweet. Most of all pancakes involve a few cheap ingredients, you can batch make and freeze them and they are great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack. Try adding some fresh fruits into your pancake mix instead of sugar or even better if savoury add some grated vegetables. Pancakes are easy to make and fun especially if you get your kids involved in making them and you can make quite a few pancakes with your mixture!
