For a sweeter taste, serve with a dusting of icing sugar (gluten free if necessary).

Instead of cinnamon, try lemon juice and honey.

HFG tip

If you’re in a hurry, don’t rest the batter. The pancakes will still be delicious, just a little less fluffy.

If you’re using defrosted berries and they’ve turned mushy, zap them in a blender to convert them into a sauce.
