I make pancakes EVERY day. On weekdays, C likes her specialty - coconut pancakes, Liv eats 'em plain with syrup & butter. I'm so happy that they're eating a nice hot breakfast that I make what they want. Their big brother was not nearly as spoiled as these gals - McD breakfast on the way to school or cold cereal was the norm.
On the weekends I make DH's favorite pancakes with granola, nuts, dried apricots, cranberries, coconut & raisins. Really, it's almost a dessert, don't ya think? Edited to add - the key is not to mix the goodies in with batter, it's so much better if you sprinkle the good stuff right before you flip 'em. Just give it an extra little press down with the spatula & you're good to go!
This morning we have a 2 hour snow delay so I made Liv some heart shaped panny cakes & set the table extra special. Of course, they wanted to eat in the family room by the TV. And the puppy got a hold of a corner of the tablecloth and nearly sent it all flying.
It was nice while it lasted!
