Pancakes are a quintessential breakfast food, topped with melted dab of butter and dripping with maple syrup. Flip and serve a warm stack this weekend, or try something new with one of these variations.
Fluffy Pancakes—Start your morning off with a smile with this classic pancake recipe. Top with fresh berries, banana, whipped cream and more! What’s great is you can prepare pancakes in advance and keep them in the freezer to reheat in the microwave for a quick breakfast on a busy morning.
Finnish Oven Pancakes—This farmer favourite recipe comes from Hubert and Cindy Schillings, 2nd generation egg farmers in Oshawa, Ontario. Simply add pancake batter to warmed baking sheets and place in the oven for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and roll them up. Then top with berry compote, sliced bananas, yogurt, syrup and more.
Sweet Potato Pancakes with Poached Eggs—For those who prefer more of a savoury pancake to sweet, these sweet potato pancakes are a great base for a poached egg on top! Mashed sweet and Yukon gold potatoes give these pancakes a velvety interior and crisp exterior with only a hint of sweetness.
PB & J Mini Pancake Cups—Reduce sticky fingers and syrupy table tops with these portable pancake muffins. Freeze extras to be reheated in the microwave as a quick snack. Perfect for little (and big) fingers, any time of day!
Dutch Baby Pancakes With Fresh Berries—These sweet little pancakes are sometimes called 'pancake popovers', or 'German pancakes'. Like other light and airy puffs, the trick to these pancakes is to make sure no heat escapes during baking. Dust with icing sugar and a squeeze of lemon before topping with your favourite berries.
