I love pancakes. A little too much, probably. They’re easy, my toddler will eat them, they lend themselves to all kinds of delicious fruity mix-ins, and, when you’re really going for it, you can soak them with rich butter and sinfully-sweet pure maple syrup.
Oh, but hey! These have bananas. So these fluffy banana pancakes are totally healthy.
Wow. Today marks a big, fat milestone. Today, Kitchen Treaty is one year old! I decided to celebrate by making funfetti birthday pancakes with sprinkles. But more about that in a minute.
Say what? It’s Pancake Day?! That screeching sound you hear would be the brakes I just put on my grilled pizza post, the one I told you yesterday that I was going to share today. I’ll save that one for tomorrow. Today, I must observe Pancake Day. Tomorrow will be about the pizza.
I hope that’s okay. Pancakes are always okay though, right?!
For the past several months, I’ve had a dear friend greet me in the kitchen nearly every morning. And around here, mornings come early. Like, 4 a.m. early with our morning-person toddler. But I digress.
Is the dear friend coffee, you ask? Well, yes, I also have a dear friend in coffee, and copious amounts of it. But there’s also another best friend in the picture: this pancake mix. Super easy homemade pancake mix.
Ahhhhhh. It’s the morning after. The kitchen is clean, the stampede of family and friends have departed, and leftovers from the big feast are all boxed up and in the fridge.
I know it’s a little early to start brainstorming ideas for how to make use of all those leftovers, so I’ll make this one easy for you: dig out that container of cranberry sauce and make these leftover cranberry sauce pancakes for your day-after breakfast.
