Apparently it's National Pancake Week. I had no idea that was even a thing. I'm not sure if there is any scientific anything supporting that it is, in fact, National Pancake Week, but the interwebs told me and clearly they are never wrong so that means we all must celebrate. I will confess though that I'm more of a french toast gal so I am feeling a little disappointed that pancakes are getting all the love. Can we all just admit that french toast is better? Please?
Anyway, I wouldn't say no to pancakes. Ever. I mean, who would?? I actually ate them a few times on my honeymoon. I'm not sure what it was about those babies, but they tasted so good! So here are a few awesome pancake recipes that someone should probably make and that I really want to eat. I'm probably going to try to sneak at least one in for a breakfast this week. I'm thinking I can talk Mr. T into it since he's the resident baker and it's totally for blog research.
Maple Bacon Pancakes
Because bacon goes with everything and makes every breakfast complete. We all also knew that I had to include something with bacon right? (I mean, like three bacon festivals follow me on Twitter. Just sayin'.) But really, this recipe sounds awesome and it includes applesauce which means you'll get your fruit in too (that's how it works, right?).
Pro tip: fry some more bacon so you can eat it while making the pancakes and you don't have to worry about ruining the recipe
Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick
What's better than bacon and pancakes? Sausage and pancakes. On a stick. On a stick you guys! There is just something about it. My mom used to buy these in little packages, similar to corn dogs, when I was younger (and by younger I mean last summer). I also used to frequent a brunch place in Chicago that make these sans stick. Seriously. The best. I want some right now. Oh and here's the recipe.
Um, I love funfetti cake and confetti everything! So obviously I am all over this s#@t. They also look pretty too. Here's the recipe.
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
Can we all just agree that all of life's decisions should be made over cinnamon rolls? And tacos. But this post is about pancakes so let's not get off subject. Eating pancakes and cinnamon rolls is impossible. Too much sugar. So why not eat both at the same time with this recipe?
Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes
True story. I am against bananas. I hate them. They hate me too. However, things with bananas in them or that taste like bananas (i.e. banana laffy taffy) are totally cool with me. I had the most amazing banana chocolate chip bread once so clearly I think having that in pancake form would be equally awesome. Here's the recipe for that too.
