I found myself up early this morning all on my own. Imagine, a quite, early morning house just for me. It was brilliant! Wonder of wonders, Phil found our last bag of frozen sour cherries at the back of the freezer a couple days ago. Those cherries, all defrosted in the the fridge begged to be used this morning. As the title would suggest I used them to make pancakes. I added some vanilla, a couple tablespoons of honey and a generous helping of cherries to our usual pancake recipe and then made cherry syrup to go on top. The syrup consisted of berries and juice in a pan on the stove with some maple syrup thrown in for sweetness. I've already had two plates but I may go have another. If the kids don't get up soon they may miss out.
