This is a bit belated but Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely moms who have worked so hard day and night for their children! What have you guys done to show your appreciation to your mom on this special occasion. I’ll tell you what I did! I woke up at 7:00 am to prepare for an 8:00 am breakfast!
To show my appreciation I made homemade pancakes and blueberry sauce for breakfast. I even paired it with an oatmeal raisin cookie; I also baked it from scratch! This meal was hearty as everything was made from scratch. Hearing this you may thing it takes a lot of time and effort, but let me assure you it only takes a few simple steps. These pancakes only require a few simple ingredients I’m sure all of you can get your hands on.
I’m sure a lot of you are used to making pancakes from the remade pancake mixes you get at the grocery store. I get it. I did exactly the same. It’s convenient and it tastes fine. However, when you put heart and soul into make something, it takes 100% better.
I used to live in the states and IHOP is one of my family go to breakfast destinations. If you’ve ever tried their pancakes, you would know its a stack of buttermilk pancakes which came from heaven. After moving away from the states I’ve been craving the those delicious pancakes everyday. It’s hard to replicate the same pancakes exactly, but these homemade pancakes hold the same magic as the wholehearted pancakes from IHOP.
I’ll be sure to keep experimenting to get it as close to those delicious IHOP pancakes. When I figure out the little secret, tips and tricks, I’ll be sure to tell you all about it. For those in the states, you’ll be able to impress those friends and family members will your new found cooking skills.
