As I've already confessed , we are not the breakfast type of people. A coffee is just enough to give us the boost of the day. Though, over the weekend and during vacation breakfast is essential. Usually our breakfast is toasted bread with either butter and jam or butter and honey, even sometimes fried eggs with bacon and sausages ...

Our favorite by far is pancakes. The recipe for the pancakes, which I use is posted here . Long ago, Nigella Lawson, was on television preparing a pancake mix. What was so special that intrigued me ? Well, she was preparing a large quantity of the dry ingredients and stored them in a jar/container. The following morning, she was taking a portion off the jar, adding milk, egg and a little butter and there she was. Pancake batter was ready.

The idea, to have the dry ingredients ready without the hassle measuring and weighing early in the morning, it was to my liking. It's so convenient, that I decided to share it with you today . The weekend is approaching .. here's a good opportunity to try this out . Weigh and prepare the ingredients for the jar NOW (lol). Tomorrow morning prepare your batter while heating your pan. It is just TOO easy. The amount of the dry ingredients mix is enough for 5 portions. Each portion is for about 10-12 pancakes, depending on their size. So you are almost settled for 5 mornings!

Try it and make your morning life easier.
