Cinnamon and almond pancakes

Cinnamon and almond pancakes

I spent ages trying to decide what should be my first recipe to upload…but in the end, it had to be these pancakes. And this is one of the first recipes I created myself that was a success, so they will always be special to me!

I have a very serious love affair with pancakes, that’s certainly not just confined to pancake day (although, that is perhaps the only day I can justify eating them for breakfast, lunch and dinner!) You just can’t beat a lazy Sunday morning whipping up some pancakes in your pjs, and enjoying them with some freshly brewed coffee. The dream! And these pancakes are ideal for that Sunday morning situation!

I’ve always loved the combination of cinnamon and almonds, and I think that’s what makes these pancakes extra special. They’re so light and fluffy, with a delicate nutty flavour and a hint of spice…throw on your favourite toppings, and you have a winning plate of deliciousness!

I hope you guys love this recipe. Feel free to leave a comment below, or share any photos of your recreations on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, and tag me #lucysloveoffood
