Classic American pancakes are great – tender, fluffy, and very simple to make. But when you are not in the mood to spend time over the stovetop, go out there and start exploring.
Yes, standard pancakes are great to make at home, but when you get out these, forget about anything that resembles standard and go wild. There is a whole unexplored world of pancakes in different colors, shapes, sizes, and flavors. We offer a list of unforgettable flapjacks you simply must taste during your lifetime.
- Apple Pie Pancakes
It’s never too early to start preparing for the fall. And what better way than indulging in a pancake stack that recreates one of the most beloved American staple foods – apple pie? These flapjacks are filled with bites of warm apples and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. On top, there are some more apples, whipped cream, and maple syrup. Comfort food at its best!
- Gingerbread Pancakes
Gingerbread desserts aren’t just for Christmas breakfasts or special occasions. These warm and cozy flapjacks are packed with spices: ginger, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice… Vanilla? There’s vanilla as well. Serve them with maple syrup or try pairing them with an orange-flavored topping. We recommend cream cheese complemented with orange zest and some more vanilla. Real fireworks of flavors!
- Brownie Pancakes
Is your sweet tooth raging? Or maybe it’s your birthday? How about some chocolate on top of chocolate in the form of pancakes? Indulge yourself in super fluffy chocolate brownie cake but this time blended with the familiar pancake goodness. They come drizzled some more with extra chocolate sauce and if you’re lucky, you might find them topped with Nutella. A girl is allowed to dream…
- Donut Pancakes
Fluffy pancakes turned sweet & tender donuts that melt in your mouth. The glaze on top is a must on these “pandos”(as they’re also called) and if there are sprinkles, you can be sure that your kids’ faces will light up with excitement! Perfect as a birthday breakfast in bed!
- Pancake Muffins
Also known as pancake bites or pancake cupcakes, these cuties are as delicious as they are fun! If you are a fruit fan, order the ones that contain blueberries inside the batter. They look like little Dalmatian puppies, I swear! If you don’t like fruit, try the plain version for unadulterated pancake goodness. Serve them with maple syrup on the side as a dip! Or with chocolate cream…Somebody stop me!
- Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
A menu item that unites your favorite dessert, cinnamon rolls, and your favorite breakfast? You got it! Fluffy flapjacks meet crusty, sugary cinnamon swirl in one super-cozy dessert. Pancake places usually serve them in a stack of three but you’ll probably find that one’s just enough since they’re very fulfilling (and quite sweet). And the glaze… Mmmm… Winter is coming, have these in mind…
- Red Velvet Pancakes
Red velvet desserts have Christmas and Valentine’s written all over them but that shouldn’t stop you from consuming them anytime and anywhere. Especially when they come in your favorite breakfast form. You will usually find them topped with cream cheese syrup or covered in powdered sugar. Or both.
- Oreo Pancakes
Things are just getting better and better! These flapjacks are the most suitable item to put under the term “bressert”. Because they can be served both as breakfast and as dessert, duh! They’re made with crushed Oreos into the batter and topped with fresh whipped cream and more crushed Oreos.
- S’mores Pancakes
We have tried S’more milk shakes, S’mores cakes, and even S’mores sandwiches but it was S’mores pancakes that won our hearts for good! They contain crumbled graham crackers in the batter, along with chocolate chips which melt during cooking. Oh boy! They’re then stacked, drizzled with chocolate syrup, showered with graham crackers, and finished off with marshmallows. Enough already, where are those pancakes?
- Snickers Pancakes
Woke up with a huge sweet tooth? Look for a pancake place that serves this flapjack variety.
Chopped snickers bar inside the batter and a sauce made of melted Snickers bars combined with heavy cream and maple syrup…Some pancake places serve them with a topping that combines melted chocolate and peanuts for an extra crunchy bite. Others use Mars chocolate bars instead of Snickers. Whichever variety you stumble upon, rest assured you’re your sweet tooth will be tamed. Unforgettable!
