Pancakes with honey
I love pancakes 🙂 mmm. My favourite topping is honey, for me that is pancake perfection. Tim made me pancakes today, which I enjoyed with honey and was happy. I was so happy to eat the pancakes that I did not remember to take a photo of them for the blog, but I don’t care, they tasted so good.
I try to have bee friendly flowers in my garden because I like honey so much. The worst flowers for bees are those double ones with petals where the middles should be. They can be pretty so I have a few, but mostly I go for the ones which are good for bees.
Bees are having a hard time at the moment. I don’t know what more I can do to help than have flowers for them to eat, but I hope they survive!
I always had honey on my pancakes, it was one of the standard things to put on pancakes when I was a child. But it is hardly ever an option at places where they sell pancakes, which is so disappointing. I’m sure maple syrup is lovely, especially fresh from the tree, but it is not the same as honey.
I guess part of it is down to the childhood memory.
But also the texture and flavour just work. And although the honey can drip out a little if I put too much on, it tends to behave much better than sugar, which just falls out.
I like savoury pancakes too, cheese and tuna for example. If honey is not an option, I’d often rather have a savoury one than a sweet one that isn’t honey.
What is your favourite pancake topping? Do you like trying new toppings or does it have to be that one always?
