What do I enjoy more than a steamy tower of freshly made fluffy pancakes drowning in maple syrup? The process of making them!

For some people, the best part of any dessert is the process of eating it. For me, it’s the actual process of making it, even such a simple dessert/breakfast as pancakes. I like experimenting not only with crepes and different fillings (as I mentioned in this post), but also with pancakes. From organic wholemeal to buttermilk blueberry to chocolate chip banana pancakes, I simply could not ignore pumpkin season and not publish one of my favourites, – pumpkin pancakes with caramelized pecans.
