You’ll Flip Over These

Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day – and every traveler knows that it’s the hardest part of your daily routine to change. No matter which part of the world you’re from, if you’re living overseas, the last thing you want to face when you wake up every morning is local food. We love to explore all the cuisines the world has to offer for lunch and dinner – but for most people, the only thing they want for breakfast is a taste of home.

With our busy schedule, the weekend is the only time our family can sit down and have a real breakfast together. For us, our favorite first meal of the day has to be pancakes – so easy to make that we always feel at home no matter where we are in the world.

Apple-Pancakes-Rye-Bread-027 (OiVietNam-3N)

This pancake recipe is one of our favorites; it’s fluffy, moist, and simple to prepare. What makes this breakfast even better is that when we have it together with our children, it’s the perfect time for family bonding.

A stack of hot pancakes topped with caramelized apples is a great way to start your weekend… Who’s in?
