We love these served with berries and cream, but they are also super yummy with good old fashioned maple syrup.  It doesn’t take much to make these pancakes from scratch…I’m sure you probably have most of these items sitting in your pantry or fridge right now, but the difference that this pancake recipe makes compared to pancakes out of a box is incredible.  Try it and see what your family thinks!
