In our corner of the world we are about to celebrate Mother’s day.
Perfect time to treat your lady like she is special. Maybe she is not a mother but don’t let that stop you showing your appreciation. She might be a mother to pet or fun Aunty or even just a future Mum. Just find time to be extra nice to her.
Our family love pancakes and we all have different toppings we like. Have fun make interesting shapes or smiley faces or try some of the the more grown up recipes below.

1 C. self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
60g unsalted butter
