Pancakes.


Pancakes are an absolute delight that your hungry soul can savour at any time of the day from breakfast to just day time snacks. This effortless, quick flat and fluffy cake can be cooked as per your choice whether you like miniatures or full fledged round ones. Personally speaking, I find pancakes to be one of the most delectable snacks since you can also prepare them depending on ingredients you would like to incorporate . For instance you could try making chocolate pancakes to cinnamon ones or just keep it plain with a classic topping. So why the wait? Lets get straight into the making of some hot chocolate pancakes.
