I love pancakes but really stink at making them! I either burn the outside, they are too thick, or they just look plain funny! I envy perfect pancake makers. I never make them but I love them. I found this recipe and I instantly fell in love. I was in search of a breakfast for the picky 5 year old’s birthday. The best part is that I had all of the ingredients and they were almost too easy!! Did they pass the birthday boy’s test? He ate 2 big squares and couldn’t get enough!! You should make these right now! It gave me hope that I can have a decent breakfast before school. My 9 year old asked me if I would make them every morning…. now that’s pushing it! 🙂
