If I see a recipe, my natural inclination is to double or triple the serving sizes because  I want left overs to freeze for a later date.

We made a batch of our pancake recipe and it was a disaster.

I followed my natural inclinations to upsize the recipe and put way too much into our mixer. The result was an overflow of pancake batter onto my kitchen bench, and onto my kitchen floors, when in my panic I tried to move the batter towards my kitchen sink.

So much for saving time. Slow and steady wins the race. Slow and steady!

Eventually, we got to have our pancakes for morning tea in the sun. Here are some very memorable morning tea inspirations from last week’s Weekly Kids’ Co-op.
