Pancakes – The Perfect Fix for a Rainy Weekend

A quick look at the weather forecast for the weekend reveals nothing but rain is in store for my neck of the woods. And, while it may seem strange, I’m totally looking forward to it!

I love rainy fall weekends. They conjure up images of lighting a fire and curling up on the couch with my family for a movie marathon. Or perhaps tucking into a good book, playing board games, doing crafts with my little guy and maybe even tackling a project on my ever-growing to-do list.

But most of all, rainy weekends offer the perfect excuse to linger over breakfast – steaming coffee, lots of fruit, crispy bacon. And, of course, a stack of pancakes fresh from the griddle and dripping with maple syrup.

This time of year, I love to add fresh apples and oatmeal into the mix. With a sprinkling of cinnamon, these flavours offer the best tastes of fall.

For some inspiration, have a look at these apple pancake recipes from our website:

I haven’t yet decided which ones I’ll be making. But I’m drooling over all of them!
