As a child I remember waking up to the smell of Mum’s pancakes on weekends. The sweetness would drift through our home and we would wake with smiles. Twenty years on and the same smell tickles my nose and taste makes me smile.

This Valentine's Day spoil your sweetheart with a batch of these delicious home-made pancakes and watch the smiles and love grow.
