Plums & Pancakes

I made this for yesterdays breakfast!

As a treat.......... It was the first morning of a week off  work and a yummy breakfast in bed seemed to be the way to go.

So, leaving Andrew snoring under the duvet, I headed down to the kitchen and came up with this breakfast combination.

First of all I made up my American pancake mix and cooked up a load of the little gems......

I then sliced up some plums, removed the stones and sauteed them, with a bit of butter and sugar, in a heavy based pan for about 10 minutes until they were tender.....

you want the fruit to look slightly translucent - like this....

Then arranged the pancakes on a warm plate, piled the fruit on top and, with a good dollop of whipped cream cheese on the side, ran back up stairs to bed and tucked in - to the bed and my breakfast.......the perfect start to what I hope will be a very relaxing week off work.
