How can a Sunday go wrong when it starts with pancakes? I have always been a pancake snob- I have vowed never again to eat pancakes in a commercial setting and I always make ours from scratch. For the last fifteen years I have not used sugar in my mix but have replaced it with ripe bananas. Recently we had a pancake craving though and alas no bananas! so I experimented with apple sauce and I actually now like that even better. A must try! The pancakes gave us all the energy we needed to get on with a team-clean of our family car, and as a reward for a job well done we went on a picnic.
A gorgeous day.


Some brave people were actually swimming (the one minute contact with the sea water..) but I am afraid we are not that brave...

Of course, some of us would if they were allowed!

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

Hi Annamaria, I always make my pancakes from scratch too. So much tastier. I really like your idea of replacing the sugar with apple of banana. Yum Yum. I will have to try this. I bet they are delicious!

September is my favourite month for picnicking! No crazy bees or ants or humidity to ruin a lovely meal in the grass.

Applesauce is a lovely substitute. One I manage to forget when mixing up a batch of 'cakes. Great tip!
