Homemade pancakes are the perfect breakfast when children’s friends are staying for sleepover.
They are not common in Europe, as you cannot easily find the prepared mix.
The ingredients for this recipe are easily available in every European store.
When I make them for young children I use Animal or Transport shapes moulds which a friend brought me from USA.
Pancakes immediately become the best breakfast they ever had.
For teenagers moulds wouldn’t work, speed and quantity is what makes them happy.
