So here we have breakfast for the first day on Week One – Raisin Pancakes. Versatile, delicious and filling, this recipe came from www.cheap-family-recipes.org. 

This is an idea I first came across on www.cheap-family-recipes.org.uk , I absolutely love them, especially with a strawberry compote with full flavoured summer strawberries

The raisins contribute towards your need for a portion of purple each day. I think this is the hardest colour to get every day, not as many foods fall into this category

They have risen in price from 8p a portion to 14p due to the increase in price of raisins. If you need to keep cost to a minimum, use sultanas as they are currently (Sep19) half the cost of raisins, which brings the cost back down to 9p

Variations

A small nugget of butter in the pan as you cook your raisin pancakes gives a lovely flavour, as does a drizzle of maple syrup. A compote of any fruit, chopped up, is delicious with these. Any dried fruit can be substituted for the raisins. If you want to go exotic, how about dried mango. Or you could use some fresh fruit, raspberries from the garden say, or a few blueberries

Sultanas are half the price, so use those if you need to
