The first time i tasted Pancakes and maple syrup was when we were holidaying in Europe last year. Though i would always love to have perfect south Indian breakfast,i had to live on sandwiches, Toasts….:-)The welcome change was pancake. Loved the maple syrup too.That day my daughter suggested that we should be making pancakes at least once a week. I guess she wanted to escape the routine of Idli/Dosai :-)…Anyway back from the tour we fell into our daily routine totally forgetting the fluffy pancakes.Recently while i was out shopping i found the Ever Eluding Maple syrup on the shelf of Nilgiris Dept store. I could not resist picking up the bottle. Turned the bottle and had a look at the price tag….You guessed it right!!I nearly swooned:-)It costs a fortune here.Just quietly replaced it on the rack, but then i felt that Vibha would love to have it. So for once i can indulge and here comes my priced possession. Costs a whopping 750/-rs for this small bottle.
Anyway this morning i made these fluffy pancakes from cooks.com and it reminded my daughter of our trip to Europe!!!!!!!!!
