A Parade of Pancakes

I’m a breakfast girl. I love breakfast for dinner, breakfast for lunch, breakfast in bed — you get the picture. And while I’m smitten with scrambles and flip for frittatas, my heart — and plate — belongs to pancakes.

Fun fact: pancakes and Mardi Gras historically go together, so I need no better excuse to share a few of our best pancake recipes.

Oh my. These all look so, so good! I love all kinds of pancakes - but I'm especially proud of these egg-less, vegan pancakes, because they turned out so delicious! http://healthyrecipesblogs.com/2012/02/08/vegan-pancakes/

I make buckwheat pancakes. But then I put a puddle of raw cream on my plate. Then I ladle hot real maple syrup diluted with a little filtered water with some Frontier strawberry or raspberry extract added and swirl it into my cream. Then I put a hot pancake onto the puddle and let it soak a few seconds and flip it over and ladle more hot syrup over. I usually add frozen strawberries or blueberries to the syrup as it is heating as well. YUM!!! The combination of cream and diluted syrup make this moist and rich, yet not sickening sweet.

I forgot, I also soak my batter overnight in a combination of whey and raw milk which replaces the liquid in the recipe. This makes the pancakes light and fluffy.
