Looking to elevate your morning routine with a delightful stack of pancakes? Look no further! This roundup features an array of tantalizing pancake recipes guaranteed to add a touch of magic to your breakfast table (or dinner—no judgment here!).

From fruity infusions to creative toppings and unique twists, there’s a pancake here for every palate. While each recipe boasts its own distinct flair, they all share a common thread: they’re easy to make, irresistibly fluffy, and bursting with flavor!

So, whether you prefer a traditional pancake experience or crave something adventurous, this collection has you covered.

Green Tip: Consider non-toxic, Teflon-free cookware for frying your pancakes! Chemicals used to create harmful non-stick bakeware are detrimental pollutants to our environment.

As someone who’s studied environmental science, I’m totally into the idea that little changes, like picking eco-friendly cookware, can add up to a big impact over time.

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar (or lemon juice)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

Instructions
 

  • In a measuring cup or small bowl, add the vinegar to the milk and set aside to slightly curdle to make buttermilk.

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and salt.

  • Add the egg, vanilla extract, and your buttermilk mixture, and whisk until smooth, careful not to overbeat.

  • Fold in the rainbow sprinkles and transfer batter to a measuring cup or other container with spout for easy pouring.
    Adding rainbow sprinkles to pancake batter
  • Add butter to your griddle or pan and allow it to heat up on medium-high until the butter is melted. For the thickest, most perfectly round pancakes, use pancake molds. Pour batter into your molds or freeform circles onto the pan and cook over medium heat.

  • When it's ready to flip, the batter on the uncooked side will start to form little air bubbles. Use a spatula to flip the pancakes, and allow them to cook on the other side for 2-3 minutes.
  • Repeat steps 5 and 6 until the pancake batter is used up, adding butter before each batch to keep your griddle greased. Option to top with whipped cream and extra sprinkles. Serve warm with maple syrup. Try them with these Vegan Breakfast Sausage Patties!

Pro Tips

  • You can easily make this recipe vegan by using any unsweetened non-dairy milk, vegan butter, and a flax egg. Just make sure if you are using sweetened or flavored milk, you adjust the other ingredients accordingly.
  • You can use cooking spray instead of butter for a lighter version, but these pancakes taste really good with a little crisp on the outside. Please note, you may have to leave them on your pan or griddle a bit longer to get them golden-brown if you’re using spray.
