Apple Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes

Apple Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes, innards

Fruit often winds up on top of a stack of pancakes, rather than inside the pancakes themselves, both in the form of whole pieces of fruit and incorporated into a syrup or topping. This is usually because classic buttermilk pancakes are pretty darn good on their own and it’s easy to simply make plain pancakes and put the fruit on top. This is a great ... Read More »

I’ll also trade in that cup o’ joe for a plate of Cappuccino Pancakes. This is a simple pancake recipe that is spiked with just enough coffee to give it a good coffee ... Read More »

Buttermilk Pancakes with Strawberry Guava Syrup

Buttermilk Pancakes with Strawberry Guava Syrup

A pat of butter and a generous drizzle of maple syrup is probably my favorite way to finish off a plate full of hot-off-the-griddle pancakes, but it isn’t the only option out there. Fresh fruit is another great way to top off pancakes, but as tasty as fresh fruit is, you don’t get the consistency with a handful of sliced berries and I like to ... Read More »

Fluffy Ricotta Pancakes

There are many things that you can do with a basic pancake recipe to make it a little bit more exciting. You can vary the syrup, using everything from maple syrup to agave to a thickened berry sauce. You can add fruit to the batter, or chocolate chips or even bacon. The options are almost endless, and one of my favorite things to add in ... Read More »

They’re sweet, satisfying and very indulgent – not to mention fairly time consuming to make. They’re a great brunch item to make when you have some extra time on a weekend, but they’re ...
