Lemon Curd Pancakes with Cream & Almonds

As the Pancake Day is approaching shortly I thought I will share with you this quick and easy recipe that we have discovered recently by coincidence when we run out of apple marmalade that we usually use for the pancakes.

Pancakes are big thing in Poland, almost as big as pierogi. My mother would be making them every week, if she could, and we do not complain, especially that our girls love granny’s pancakes.

More Pancake Day recipes (mostly Polish) can be found here.
