Set the syrup aside and bring out the decadent caramel sauce when you serve caramel banana pancakes. The flavors will linger and delight your taste buds. One of the secrets of the recipe is to mash an especially ripe banana into the pancake batter, while saving a few firmer bananas to slice and serve on top. The rich caramel sauce is simple to make and tastes amazing.
Baked Apple Pancake
If you’re looking to feed a crowd, turn to a recipe that makes one big pancake so you aren’t tied to the griddle for an hour flipping pancakes. The fluffy baked apple pancake includes lots of real apple and gets its richness from two kinds of cheese. The combination of tart apple, sweet cinnamon and sugar, and rich egg and cheese will leave you speechless/tastes amazing/pairs together perfectly, etc. It’s like eating apple pie for breakfast!
Vegetable Potato Pancakes
Pancakes don’t have to be sweet to be decadent, as these rich vegetable potato pancakes prove. The shredded potato pancakes are topped with cheese and can be served with sour cream as a rich accompaniment. The pancakes include broccoli, which adds color and flavor. Serve them up as part of a brunch, or enjoy pancakes later in the day as part of lunch or dinner.
Fat Tuesday only comes once a year so celebrate the occasion. Each of these delicious pancake recipes will leave you feeling satisfied, and your memory of the flavors will help get you through to Easter.
