Apologies for this being a short post, I have so much CAD work to do, it’s taking up all of my time. I did it for 11 1/2 hours yesterday and today’s looking like more of the same 🙁 Just want to get it done, doesn’t help when all the computers in the house decide to be slow when I really need them to work. Not usually slow, but when I’m busy they decide to think about plotting a line for about 2 minutes rather than just doing it.
Sunday’s have kind of turned into pancake Sunday’s in our house. It’s usually when I have buttermilk to use up and so much fruit we don’t know what to do with it.
So pancakes seem like the answer, uses up buttermilk and fruit and is a lovely, tasty, filling breakfast. My boyfriend loved these blueberry ones and I keep making different flavours of pancakes now, most turn out wonderfully, a few have been a bit too experimental…
Makes about 6 depending on pancake size
