Pancake is one of the best breakfast we've had everyday, because pancake is easy and fast made. Everybody loves pancake.

The salty pancake made with sweet corn and bacon, mushroom or spinach can be served for your lunch or dinner.

You can also try the sweet pancake for your breakfast, served with maple syrup, jams, or fresh fruit and creme, or even ice cream.

The following are two of pancake recipes I've practised. One is the salty pancake (Mexican Corn Pancake with Avocado) and the other is the sweet pancake (French Pancake).
