When it comes to breakfast foods, pancakes are way up there on our list of favorites! And it’s a good thing, too, because this week was Pancake Week! To celebrate (and pay tasty homage to this yummy breakfast treat), here are five amazing pancake recipes we’re sure will make your mouth happy!
Five Awesome Pancake Recipes to Tempt Your Taste Buds| Food
February is a month of love, so we’re celebrating with a focus on things we love, from home décor to fun holidays and more!
Talk about a patriotic pancake! Perfect for the Fourth of July or any day, these pancakes are pure chocolaty bliss with an explosion of color. A step up from your everyday ordinary chocolate, red velvet always seems a little more rich. And the blueberries add just the right touch of sweetness! We bet you could swap the coconut syrup for sour cream icing (a perfect pairing with red velvet anything) if you wanted something to really tempt your sweet tooth. FIND THE RECIPE HERE. (Tip: You can also cheat on the pancakes and invest in some red velvet pancake batter!)
When it comes to decadence, we’re all over these yummy pancakes. And best of all, they’re actually a bit healthier for you than an actual cinnamon roll! It does take a little artistry and patience to get these just right, but we promise they’re worth the effort. And the maple coffee glaze? OMGoodness, yes: and also super easy to make. GET THE RECIPE HERE.
Chocolate + Bacon = Sweet, Sweet Bliss. Even the creator of the recipe admits that these pancakes are “a little over the top” … but in all the ways we love. Even if bacon and chocolate together isn’t your thing, we bet you’d enjoy the candied bacon recipe on its own, and the Nutella maple syrup sounds like it’d be a dream come true on some ice cream. So this is really like three or four great recipes in one. You’re welcome. CHECK OUT THE RECIPE HERE.
Sure, you could save this recipe for your birthday … but seriously, why wait? This recipe is for that lazy Saturday when you can 100% afford a sugar coma. We tried to validate this recipe with our diet by recognizing there’s only two teaspoons of sugar in the pancakes … and it totally works, if you ignore the fact that you’re also essentially baking and eating a whole cake to make these. But maybe it’s time to go a little Alice in Wonderland and celebrate your unbirthday. We’re sure you’ve earned it. ENJOY THE RECIPE HERE.
We … can’t … even. Our jaws just about hit the floor when we saw these yummy pancakes. Yes, the site with the recipe recommends saving them for dessert rather than breakfast. Yes, we can feel our blood pressure spiking just thinking about them. Yes, sugar coma. But still … chocolate. Oreos. Whipped cream. How could we (or you) resist? FIND THE RECIPE HERE. (PS: If anyone tries this with Golden Oreos, we want to hear about it!)
No, these aren’t healthy, but they are healthier than a lot of other pancake recipes. And since we know more and more people are being stricken by gluten allergies, or prefer the vegan lifestyle, we didn’t want to leave anybody out! According to the genius behind this recipe, you absolutely must top these pancakes with an actual peanut butter cup … and we’re not going to argue with a genius. GET THE RECIPE HERE.
