A mountain of pancakes to be scaled

Today I went to Combibos on Gloucester Green for breakfast (well, brunch really) and devoured the above pancake mountain. They were delicious fluffy American-style pancakes with blueberries in the mixture that burst when you ate them and were sharp and delicious. They came with a little jug of maple syrup and a dusting of icing sugar, and I ate the whole lot and felt excellent (if slightly sick) afterwards.
Just thought I would share that with the world, and heartily recommend that you all go to Combibos for brunch. Not only is it awesome (I saw a man attacking what seemed to be a full English breakfast contained within a toasted bagel), it is also absurdly cheap - for £10 you can get a full English, blueberry pancakes, and a cup of tea and a cup of coffee. They also have nice things like Eggs Benedict/Royale/Florentine, granola, porridge, waffles, vegetarian full Englishes, bagels, toast...

I want to go again tomorrow please. I also now want to make my own stack of pancakes. I quite like making them with mashed up banana in the mixture and then boiling some blueberries until juicy and pouring them over - it is actually wonderful. I reckon rhubarb compote with orange-zest spiked pancake mixture would be excellent too. Or apple compote with cinnamon pancakes. 

When my exams are over I am actually going to host a pancake FEAST.
