chef made | honey pancakes

This is surely one for the weekend.

Rich wholesome honey sweetens this stack of buttery pancakes inside and out. The secret to achieve cakey texture is to not over-mix the batter. Serve the pancakes fresh from the skillet with a drizzle of warm honey, and fresh banana. If you don’t have a non-stick skillet, lightly grease the pan with butter between each batch.

Thank you to our friend, chef and cookbook author, Yvonne Ruperti for this truly delicious recipe.
