It’s been a long time since I have posted on the blog. I’m not exactly sure why, but I just couldn’t make myself sit down and do it. It’s certainly not that I haven’t been busy making yummy treats for and with my grandkids! On the plus side, I now have a few new blog posts lined up and ready to post.
Now, on to the pancakes. I have seen this recipe all over Pinterest for quite awhile, and they always looked fabulous. Unfortunately, Jim isn’t a huge pancake fan, and I have been trying to prepare more healthy meals, so I never had an “excuse” to make them. That changed in August when Melissa and the boys came to visit for a few days. Both boys love to cook, so I decided that we (they) could make them. One of the recipes I looked at used pancakes made from scratch. Instead, I chose to use Bisquick, because it’s so easy. My favorite pancake mix is by Krusteaz, but I seldom buy it because we don’t eat pancakes enough to justify it taking up precious pantry space.
The pancakes were such a hit that I made them with the girls when we were in Richmond a few days ago. Needless to say, they loved them too.
I don’t have many pictures that turned out very good. I have been really shaky lately, so most of my pictures have been out of focus.
Two of the recipes I looked at are from Making Memories with your kids and Recipe Girl. The Recipe Girl recipe includes a recipe for pancakes made from scratch, which I am sure is wonderful. The recipe from Making Memories with your kids includes three different frosting recipes. I used the cream cheese frosting recipe that is on the Recipe Girl site, but I think I will try the maple frosting that is on the Making Memories with your kids site the next time I make them.
All of the kids really enjoyed making and eating the pancakes, and I hope that you will enjoy them too. Please leave a comment letting me know if you enjoyed them or have any questions.
