This recipe can be prepared the night before if you have time in the morning to cook up some pancakes and if not they will delight everyone on a Saturday or Sunday morning. The smell of homemade pancakes cooking will have the whole family leaping out of bed and rushing to the kitchen to eat. This recipe has a healthy kick to them that you won’t find in a box mix at the supermarket.

  • ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup of golden raisins
  • 1 cup of sliced and toasted almonds
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups of water
