Carrot Cake Pancakes

To celebrate the official launch of Coffee Filters to Cheese Graters next Monday {squee!}, I’m running content from the book this week.

Snowman Pancakes

how to make snowman pancakes

Grace likes to plan our meals sometimes. There’s no rhyme or reason. If she just gets a notion, we usually run with it. Last Wednesday, her notion was to eat snowman pancakes. So we ate snowman pancakes. I’m not exactly sure where the idea for snowman pancakes came from, but Joe whipped up some pancake mix (gluten-free for me thanks to Pamela’s Ultimate Baking & Pancake Mix and regular from Krusteaz) and got started. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, Joe poured the big circle of batter first, then the middle, then the head. Each snowman took a full 1/3 … Read more

Sweet Potato Pancakes featuring IHOP at Home Syrup

sweet potato pancakes

I love breakfast for dinner, and I especially love omelets and pancakes. We make all kinds of pancakes – chocolate chip pancakes, pumpkin pie pancakes, carrot cake pancakes, apple ring pancakes, bananas foster pancakes, and baked pancakes. They are a perfect breakfast or dinner (or lunch, I suppose) because they’re quick and easy, and paired with eggs or ham and some fruit, they make for a satisfying and filling meal. At home, we make pancakes and eggs for dinner often. When we’re eating out though, we really like to have them for breakfast. We aren’t fortunate enough to have an … Read more

This recipe is very easy to make gluten-free by substituting Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix for the regular pancake mix. We love Pamela’s and have used it for years!   Print Recipe Apple Ring Pancakes … Read more

Heart-Shaped Banana Pancakes with Chocolate Chips and Peanut Butter

We had a lot of snow this week. Joe was outside shoveling our driveway for the twelfth time this week when I had a brainstorm. When he came in, I had a hot, heart-shaped banana pancake dotted with chocolate chips waiting for him. I used pancake mix so that they’d go together quickly, and I made them in much the same way as he’d made the heart-shaped omelets earlier in the week. Banana Pancakes Ingredients 1 cup of pancake mix (I was in a hurry, and the mix made sense. If you want to make banana pancakes from scratch, try … Read more

I like pancakes. I have eaten them almost every week since I found the secret to great pancakes. I just love them. I really love pancakes when they’re smeared with a bit of peanut butter or with cream cheese and homemade jam. And with maple syrup, of course. Pancakes are perfect for hiding fruits and vegetables. I like to chop up apples or fresh peaches and put them in the batter. I like to put crushed pineapple in sometimes, or even chocolate chips. Nuts are always nice, too. My friend, Allie, gave me her recipe for pumpkin pie pancakes, and … Read more
