Spring Break’s finally here and I’ve got a good old fashioned pancake recipe that’s perfect for these next few leisurely mornings of vacation! Whether you’re at the beach, the lake, or, just doing a staycation at home, these pancakes will hit the spot and are sure to be one of the highlights of your Spring Break (yes, they’re that good)! I discovered this pancake recipe a few years ago and it’s one of my “go-to” recipes whenever my family’s all together and we have some extra time to sit down and enjoy a nice breakfast. We absolutely LOVE these pancakes and here’s why I’m certain your family will too:
A Kid Friendly Recipe – For these pancakes, you can let even the tiniest chef in your family pitch in and help because there’s no dicing, chopping, or dangerous kitchen equipment involved. While you’ll want to take over when it’s time to actually cook the pancakes, young children will have a blast beforehand measuring, stirring, and prepping the ingredients.
7 Ingredients – Yes, that’s all it takes to make these delicious pancakes! And, these 7 ingredients are simple items that you probably already have in your pantry. Even better, you don’t have to worry about what in the world you’re feeding your family because you can’t pronounce 8 out of the 23 ingredients listed on the side of the pancake mix box.
Extras Are Welcome – Like blueberry pancakes? Add blueberries to the batter! Chocolate chip pancakes? Just throw a few in! The sky’s the limit as far as what you can add to these pancakes. And, other than just flat out burning them, there’s really no way to mess them up. You can tailor them to your family’s preferences and they’re delicious each and every time!
Now, just a few extra tips before we move on to the recipe. First of all, it’s totally okay to mix the dry ingredients beforehand and just add the liquids a few minutes before you’re ready to start cooking. If you’re short on time, this is super helpful! And, for any leftover pancakes, simply freeze them after they’re cooked and then microwave them later for a quick breakfast on the go. Easy, delicious, and a surefire crowd pleaser, this is one fantastic pancake recipe that I can’t wait for you to try! Enjoy!
