As a mother you try to make life easier for you when it comes to easy breakfast food and saving.We bought a package of small pancakes about 8 months ago for kayla's breakfast. I unfortunately ran out of it just when Kayla was hunkering for a pancake for breakfast, then i remembered.My sister back home loves to make pancakes(hotcake)and she makes them from scratch. I got her to email me the recipe and viola!!! I started making and freezing my own pancakes for breakfast. You can add fruits on your pancake batter like,bananas,blueberries and others.Saves me money and its conveniet. All you have to do is pop it in the microwave and pancakes for breakfast!..

Kayla loves it,specially when i make it into small round pancakes. She could eat as much as 6-8. Today,she and Ashley my visiting niece had fun flipping the pancakes and eating them to.

Since this was a success,i was thinking about making waffles from scratch to so this way i can make waffles and we dont have to spend a lot on this breakfast stuff. Ill have to buy a waffle maker,lol
