    These pancakes are passed down from my grandmother, who was Scandinavian. They are light and fluffy, and great with berry syrups. I have made these for years as a special treat, and I hope you enjoy them as much as my family has.

    American pancakes are much thicker than ours and are traditionally served with maple syrup. You can opt for maple syrup, honey, golden syrup or a lovely fruit compote.

    Nothing says American breakfast more than a stack of fluffy, thick pancakes drowned in syrup. The buttermilk in this recipe gives these pancakes a bit of help in staying moist and fluffy, whilst adding a creamy flavour. You can find buttermilk in most supermarkets, but if you can't get it where you are, full fat milk mixed with a bit of natural yoghurt will work as well (if not better). The trick to great pancakes is to make sure your batter is the right consistency and cook them slowly on a low heat in a bit of oil or butter.

    These pancakes are fluffy, moist and delicious. They are wonderful as is or drenched in golden syrup, maple syrup, honey or chocolate sauce. Try adding a handful of fresh or frozen blueberries to the batter. Perfect for breakfast, brunch or dessert.

    These pancakes are thick, like a drop scone, and wonderfully light and fluffy. They can be left plain, but adding fruit, such as sliced banana, makes them infinitely more exciting, and more nutritious too. Here they are served with cinnamon-spiced yoghurt and a drizzle of honey. Serve straight from the pan, to enjoy at their best.

    This pancake recipe was handed down to me by my Great Aunt Clara of Denver, Colorado. The only instruction apart from the ingredients list was, "keeps well in a sealed jar". The main thing to remember when making these pancakes is: don't overmix!! You should always have lumps in the batter.
