Make these easy floral pancakes with figs and labneh for a lovely start to your day.

I had picked these beautiful figs, which are in season, the day before. They went perfectly with the pancakes with some whipped labneh and crushed pistachios on top.

It was a Saturday morning, the first weekend after the summer vacations. I honestly no idea how the week went past. It just whizzed past, and I am still kinda lost. However, breakfast has to be something special. It doesn’t matter how prepared I am for the week there are moments of madness, and at times it almost drives me crazy. I must say, the way the pancakes turned out, I am looking forward to any challenges coming forth next week.

The weekends are like breathers. I take this time to make something special for my family, usually. It might not be elaborate, just a twist here and there. Take, for example, these pancakes. They are like my regular pancakes with a beautiful twist. Rosewater adds that lovely floral aroma which is subtle but leaves you with a smile. The smell of rose water reminds me of our community gatherings back home. Rosewater is sprayed on everyone as they entered the hall. I do miss these gatherings and especially the food.
Hope you do make these simple pancakes with my twist and have a lovely weekend with family.
