Pancake Mornings-What I'm Loving!

Believe it or not when I was a little girl I would only eat pancakes that my daddy made! If my dad didn't make them I wouldn't eat them. There was just something about my dads pancakes that were special. My dads pancakes always had a light perfect fluffy texture that would almost always be dotted with chocolate chips. But I think the reason I loved my dads pancakes the most was the memories that came from pancake mornings in my family. Almost always you would find an array of delicious toppings set out and cookie cutters scattered all over the table.  My sister and I loved cutting fun shapes in to our pancakes.  One thing I can safely say was pancake mornings were a treat!

So today I want to devote what in loving Wednesday to pancakes!  Because I have had serious craving for pancakes the last couple of weeks... I have just been to lazy to actually make them (what is wrong with me?)!

So here are a few delicious pancake recipes I have been dying to try...
Apple Walnut Pancakes from Taste of Home


These look delicious!

Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

Pancakes cinnamon roll style!

Makin' banana pancakes

Yes I sing the Jack Johnson song when I make banana pancakes, makes it more fun!
And just because these pancakes remind me of cookie cutter pancakes...


How cute are those?

Doesn't this list make you want to run to your kitchen and whip up pancakes?
I wish I had time to make pancakes before work, don't you?

Happy Wednesday!
What are your favorite pancake recipes?

    1. It took me a long time to branch out and try other peoples pancakes! I still have a hard time ordering them when I am out for breakfast, they just are not the same as from scratch! However there is a places in my boyfriends hometown that I just love their banana pancakes!

  2. I can totally relate to this post! My dad made breakfast for us growing up, EVERY day. And many of those days included pancakes. It was a special treat when he would make us waffles though :) Thanks for sharing all these amazing recipes. My green smoothie does not satisfy as much as a chocolate chip pancake (or five) would.

  15. Yum! I love pancakes, but not for breakfast (the sugar makes me jittery and the white flour makes me feel tired all day) so I like to have breakfast for dinner every once and a while. My body handles them a lot better at night. Maybe an option for you? It's so much fun!

  25. Mmmm..I love pancakes. Bryce says mine are the best he ever had (he's definitely biased)..we use the recipe in The Joy of Cooking though and I definitely think it's a great one and probably a big part of the reason he likes them...and of course the chocolate chips I add help!
