​Scotch Or Scottish Pancakes

A variety of standard pancakes comes from Scotland, and Jacqueline had them improved a bit. The minimalistic approach is seen in only five ingredients (flour, sugar, salt, egg, and milk), but this isn’t bad.

On the contrary, makes the recipe really fast and easy. What sets them apart is that Scottish pancakes are smaller but thicker than the other, and fluffy. Unfortunately, no scotch with ice is allowed.

Finally, a recipe which will make male readers run to the kitchen! Although it seems a bit odd, it is amusing to prepare and make. Since the beer has its distinct taste, when combined with other ingredients it will not “suffocate” the others, but rather make them better.

Also, try to avoid using smoked bacon, since that one is way too salty, and can ruin the taste. Say thanks to Meaghan that you can’t push your husband out of the kitchen anymore.

​Sausage Pancakes

Erin found an unusual combination. Instead of thinking whether you would like sausages or pancakes for breakfast, she suggests both.

The recipe is quite simple, though, all it is is to cook the sausage, cut it into thin slices, roll up in pancake batter, and throw it into the frying pan. 

Since it is rich in calories and still compact, you can consider it for a picnic or any outdoor meal.

​Banana Macadamia Nut, Coconut Whip Pancakes (Vegan, Contains Gluten)

To be honest, I never thought that pancakes could be made without the eggs. I’m glad that Anjali proved me wrong. Her combination of coconut cream, mashed bananas, and macadamia with the whim of vanilla just made my day.

It was perfectly balanced, not too sweet nor tasteless, and the softness was heavenly. I strongly recommend you to try it!

​​Whole-Wheat Raw Orange Blossom Honey And Ricotta Pancakes

What I love about these pancakes is the light and pillowy soft texture. Using only egg whites in the batter, the pancakes are not as dense as the regular kind of pancakes.

The whole-wheat flour adds a wonderful earthy and bold flavor and paired with the delicate orange blossom honey and the creaminess of the ricotta cheese - these pancakes become a delightful experience every time!

​Erin’s Oh-So-Fluffy Sourdough Pancakes

Erin hails from Alaska, where she lives and gives us excellent recipes. She recommends using coconut or olive oil (I prefer the first one, gives me the feeling as if I’m on a desert island), making an ordinary batter for pancakes, but also to boost it with a sourdough starter (which should be left the night before to do its magic).

Be careful as I wasn’t, so the first time my pancakes were kind of black, and not set the temperature too high. In case that you do make a mistake, make the batter again and start all over.

Serve those with yogurt and maple syrup.

In case of confusion, S’more stands for “some more,” because you will hear that a lot in case that you make them for family breakfast. Chocolate chips paired with marshmallow crème are a guarantee that your kids will adore them.

I have because they are light, sweet just enough and still exciting and fun to make. Simply put, Krissy did a marvelous job here!

The richness of this syrup is hard to express. Quinoa is there for a healthy portion, lemon gives freshness, the honey mildness, and rosemary gives that Mediterranean vibe which I just loved.

​​Make-Ahead Breakfast For Busy Mornings: Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes

Standard pancakes are a great way to start the day. In order to make your day better, Regan suggests a simple recipe of flour, eggs, baking powder, and buttermilk.

She also says that you shouldn’t beat the mixture for too long because pancakes will be rubber-like, and I have to admit it, she’s right. After done, pack them in a zipper bag and freeze.

In case of sudden hunger, toss them into the microwave, and you’re saved.

​Guilt-Free Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

Granola is available at everywhere these days, but I have never thought that I could use it to make pancakes. Luckily, Neha showed me the other way. Top the pancakes with granola and strawberries along with maple syrup.

I suggest to leave it for a few minutes for granola to soak up the syrup for the ultimate experience.

As easy to make as they are to eat, pancakes are always a favorite at my breakfast (or dinner) table. Needing nothing much more than a pan, a stove burner, and a bowl to mix batter in, they also make for easy cleanup after the meal is over.
