Honey Pancakes

My nearly 5 year old has not been well lately, a bad case of mosquito bites getting infected then resulting in a severe infection of some kind.
So to fulfill my job as a nurturing mum…apart from a stressed helpless mum,  I have been making pancakes as a special treat.
These are fairly easy to make but you do need a mixer or some good whisking but they only have honey as the sweetener so a good one for little people as a school snack.

I like to make them small, kid’s palm size and they definitely disappear pretty quickly!
