Crazy Pancakes!

Crazy Pancakes!
Did you know that pancakes are served in some form or other in every continent on earth? They are the quintessential international dish! 

Take your flapjacks from lazy to crazy with these fun ideas:

Chocolate Fantasy:
Throw ½ cup of milk-chocolate chips into the batter and cook as usual. Instead of syrup serve with a dollop of Greek-style yogurt.

Apples 'n Cinnamon:
After pouring the batter onto the griddle, layer thin slices of apple on top and sprinkle with cinnamon before carefully flipping. They're done when the apple is a golden color. Yum!

I Like Your Shape:
The possibilities are endless: Pour batter into the shape of letters, numbers, faces, or make a regular large pancake and cut shapes using cookie-cutters. We love this hungry caterpillar using mini round 'cakes.

Rainbow Connection: 
Separate the batter into different bowls then add blue, green, purple or red food coloring. Voilà! A delicious rainbow stack.

Fill Me Up:
Make breakfast 'burgers' by filling two small pancakes with slices of banana. A dollop of raspberry jam is the 'ketchup' and apple sticks are the 'fries'.

We want to know how you make your pancakes extra special!
