This time I thought I’d try something different and use walnuts, which I currently have an abundance of. I candied the nuts in a maple based syrup and just poured that over the pancakes. The flavours were good but the whole thing was just crying out for a scoop of icecream. Bananas would also go exceptionally well with this, but I’m not that rich!
