8 Pancakes You’ve Got to Try
Cozy up to a stack of these delicious hotcakes.
1. Pumpkin Panckes, ‘nuff said.
2. Top your favorite pancakes with decadent Bananas Foster.
3. Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes | A favorite recipe as is, but here’s how Allrecipes member hotdiggitydogs customized it: “Instead of 1 ½ cups flour I used 1 cup flour and ½ cup rolled oats. I also added ¼ teaspoon cinnamon and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract. We served it with cinnamon sugar butter and all loved them!”
4. Todd’s Famous Blueberry Pancakes | “These really are great, tender pancakes. I have found that sprinkling the berries on the pancake after it is on the griddle works best and avoids smashing them.” — KIMBICA
5. Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes | “These are the BEST pancakes I have ever eaten. Usually I like to drown my pancakes in my homemade apple syrup, but these were awesome with a minimal amount of syrup.” — CHARISSALYNN
6. Strawberry Vanilla Pancakes | Light and fluffy pancakes packed with strawberries. Reviewer tip: Use the full 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract. You’ll be glad you did.
7. Mom’s Applesauce Pancakes | Allrecipes member Shirley Smith says her mother passed down this recipe, which was always a special request at brunches. She likes to serve them with maple syrup or apple butter. Yum!
8. Ellen Szaller’s Mashed Potato Pancakes | “I had leftover garlic mashed potatoes, so I used those and left out the corn syrup. These were EXCELLENT with a little ketchup. My 3-year-old ate three by himself!” — MomZilla (Evin)
