Cinnamon Spice Pancakes with Cinnamon Poached Plums
These Cinnamon Spice Pancakes have a lovely sweet cinnamon flavour and make a perfect base for the cinnamon poached plums, soaking up the lovely juices, a little topping of cream or thick yogurt counteracts the acidity of the fruit.
Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras
Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras is the traditional time to serve pancakes to use up rich foods before the start of Lent. But it seems a shame to keep such a delicious dessert just for one day, especially when they are so easy to make, so don’t wait, get the pan out and make these delicious pancakes.
