Make these 6 Creative Pancakes Recipes
When it comes to pancakes a little creativity can go a long way. Here are six pancake recipes for you to try at home:
1. Good Old-Fashioned pancakes
This is the pancake recipe you’ll find in your grandma’s recipe book. Made with the time-tested ingredients that everyone loves; flour, baking powder, sugar, milk, an egg, a pinch of salt and butter. Top ‘em with Maple Syrup and it’s always a winner!
2. Greek Style pancakes
From the kitchen of a good Greek girl, there has to be a pancake with some Greek flare. Using your traditional ingredients, add a little cinnamon to the batter. When the pancakes are ready, top them off with butter, crumbled walnuts and warm honey. Opa!
3. Healthy pancakes
Pancakes are an indulgence, but you can still make them healthier by swapping out a few ingredients. Use quick cooking oats and egg whites to create the batter, cook them in a pan until they are set and then top off with fresh blueberry jam.
4. Animal Shaped pancakes
Using various sizes while cooking pancakes, you can make almost any animal shape. The larger round portion for the head, a small circle for the nose and small oval shaped pancakes for the ears or two round shapes merged together to make the body and decorate with fruit. Try making a bird, cat, lion or pig to put a smile on your kid’s face.
5. Peanut Butter pancakes
Peanut butter is a favorite flavor for so many people. Simply whisk in a smooth mixture of part peanut butter, part water blend to your traditional pancake ingredients and top with your favorite syrup. That is peanut buttery good!
6. Lemon Buttermilk pancakes
Lemons can add a bright flavor and good health benefits to almost any recipe; and that includes pancakes. Add ¼ cup of lemon juice and a tablespoon of lemon zest to your traditional pancake recipe, cook like normal and you have a citrusy delight! Serve with sausage and syrup enjoy the sweet and savory.
