Macadamia Nut Pancakes with Bananas

Pouring maple syrup

I got an interesting tip from a guy at my local Trader Joe’s this week about adding nuts to pancakes. He suggested that I grate the nuts using a microplane or other very fine grater instead of chopping them up. This technique has plusses and minuses. The plus is that you really disperse the nut flavor throughout the pancake, so you can taste it in ... Read More »

Batter Blaster, reviewed

Batter Blaster

Batter Blaster is a product that I really wanted to lampoon when it first came out. It is pancake batter that comes in a spray can, just liked canned whipped cream. It’s organic and promises to produce light and fluffy pancakes with with “no mess – no cleanup!” I like to make pancakes from scratch and thought that the product was a little unnecessary, but ...

For those who celebrate Lent, Shrove Tuesday is a pretty important day because it is the last day before Lent, traditionally a period of fasting. The day is also known as Pancake day, because foods like milk, eggs and butter needed to be used up before Lent began and pancakes were a great way to do just that.

How to add fruit to pancakes

Pancakes with berries

Blueberry pancakes are a great way to start off breakfast, but getting the fruit inside the pancakes can be surprisingly difficult. Stirring the berries into the batter seems like the best way to combine the two elements, though stirring can cause berries to burst and discolor the batter.

Coffee Cake Pancakes

Coffee Cake Streusel

A good streusel topping is hard to resist. It’s one of the things that makes coffee cakes so popular, and can turn a good muffin into a great one – or at least turn it into one that looks a little more decadent. I’m sure that this is what IHOP was banking on when they introduced some “limited time only” Coffee Cake Pancakes to their ... Read More »

Aebleskiver pan

Aebleskiver, or ebelskiver, are small spherical pancakes. They’re traditionally Danish, but the pancakes have been enjoying an upswing in popularity lately and are a little more common now than they once were. The pancakes are often filled with fruit or jam, rather than being served with syrup. You might not see the real name associated with recipes for these little treats, though, as some stores ...

White Whole Wheat Sour Cream Pancakes

White Whole Wheat Sour Cream Pancakes, eating in progress

When I was a kid, the reason I loved going out for pancakes on a Sunday morning was the syrup. Or rather, the syrups. Any diner or pancake house that had a variety of syrups that included a couple of fruit-flavored ones got a big thumbs up in my book. I still like the touch that fruit adds to maple syrup and, when I happen ... Read More »

“Maybe we could sleep in; I’ll make you banana pancakes; Pretend like it’s the weekend now. We could pretend it all the time.” –Jack Johnson, Banana Pancakes It never hurts to have a little inspiration for a recipe and the Jack Johnson song “Banana Pancakes” is what prompted me to make a batch of pancakes for myself. It’s a cute song and, if you listen ... Read More »
