We all have situations in life where we need recipes that only take a few staple ingredients to make. Easy recipes with no fuss. These recipes are for those “what to make” days, those “there is nothing in the house” days, or those “what can I make with the minimum ingredients” days.
We are here to help.

Easy to prepare and you can serve them as breakfast or dessert and even a light lunch if you ad savory toppings.
As these pancakes have a fairly neutral taste, you can easily serve them with any topping of your choice, sweet or savory.
Another idea to make an easy breakfast, lunch, or dinner, with staples, is:
Omelets – dressed in many different ways. You can use about anything you have in the house to make a filling.
Also, take a look at our recipe for South African Pancakes – a very versatile recipe that’s a lot different from the above American version.
Or make Orecchiette Pasta with only ONE INGREDIENT !!!
