One of the traditions at our house is making pancakes on the weekend. Ryan and I have fond memories of getting together on Saturday mornings when we were just dating and making platefuls of pancakes, smothering them in syrup, and endlessly debating whether they were better topped with butter (my view) or peanut butter (Ryan’s).
Now that we’ve got a third functioning human here, we’ve included her in the fun. If she wakes up early, she gets to help stir and maybe even add some sprinkles, if we’re feeling especially special that day. If she sleeps in, we get to see her eyes light up when we go into her bedroom and tell her that pancakes are almost on the table.
We use the recipe from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s Joy of Vegan Baking (page 68, by the way) and they turn out pretty perfect every time. We do variations on that theme sometimes – this past weekend I added a few scoops of cocoa powder for some chocolatey goodness. I’ve even embraced the peanut butter (or almond butter!) topping when we don’t have Earth Balance on hand.
Here are how a few of my favorite bloggers serve up flapjacks:
