Recipe: Best-Ever Pancakes
Everyone loves pancakes. You can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can have a tall stack or a short stack or make enough to eat everyday. Like the pound cake, pancakes are a great versatile Southern dish to master. They are one of the key foundations to a great breakfast. You can make pancakes that are sweet like these candy-cane pancakes or these red velvet pancakes. Served up with super savory bacon they are a great compliment to all that saltiness. Kids also love it when their pancakes come in funny shapes like their initials or a smiley face just for them. The options for different shapes are endless – the bigger the griddle the more fun you can have! Holiday inspired pancakes are another great way to start a big day. We love these Shamrock Pancakes to ring in St. Patrick’s Day, which is one of our very favorite holidays to celebrate in Savannah, Georgia. Perhaps you should make a batch to keep on hand during the day in case you see a leprechaun. Surely a pancake offering will keep him from pinching you. Give him a tall stack and he just might show you to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! If you are a little reluctant to carry around a spare stack of pancakes in your handbag for a fleeting leprechaun we understand. But, we don’t understand if you don’t save your leftover pancakes after breakfast this St. Patrick’s Day. After you spend the whole day drinking green beer, you’ll be excited to come home to all those Shamrock pancakes. You’ll also be free to use them in creative ways – why not try a pancake hamburger? Just like bacon, a burger patty could be a perfect compliment to the sweet pancake. Hold off on the mustard and onion though. Before you get started though, you’ll need to watch this great video on how to make the Best-Ever Pancakes to learn that melted butter is the trick to extra fluffy pancakes.
