Ten Amazing Pancake Recipes for National Pancake Day

Pancake Day

Did you know that tomorrow (Tues Mar. 4th) is National Pancake Day? It is always one of my favorite days because you can get a free short stack of pancakes at IHop. The of course suggest that you make a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network in exchange. But I heard on the radio today that, at least in Grand Rapids, all the money benefits our local children’s hospital. I love that the money is staying local!

I’m not sure I will make it to IHop tomorrow so instead I rounded up my favorite pancake recipes from friends and Pinterest and thought we could do a little top ten. One of my favorite meals around here is breakfast for dinner. Tuesday will be BRINNER for sure!!

1. Red Velvet Pancakes- Musings of a Housewife




My mom has a famous red velvet cake that she makes for special occasions so loving red velvet anything is in my DNA. The recipe here is for a gluten free version, but you can easily modify that if you want. Yummy!

2. Maple Bacon Pancakes- The Lemon Bowl




Half the time I think I just make a big breakfast so I have an excuse to eat lots of bacon. Might as well mix it right in with the pancake. Why waste time eating two separate things?

3. Oreo Pancakes- She Knows




Does this even need explanation? OMyWord. The world is a better place now that I know these exist.

4. Granola Banana Pancakes- Tidy Mom



I gotta tell you if granola pancakes are on the menu at a restaurant it is almost always what I am getting. I love the soft squishy pancake with a tiny bit of crunch. Add in bananas and you had me at hello!

5. Cinnamon Sticky Bun Pancakes- Jessie Weaver

A pancake that tastes like you are eating a warm gooey sticky bun? It is like two of my favorite breakfast foods had a baby. These look amazing.

6. Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes- Picky Cook




One of our favorite brunch places in Chicago used to have a lemon poppyseed pancake on their special spring menu. It just tasted like spring. I could use a little spring right now…..

7. S’mores Pancakes- Spoonful




My love of s’mores runs so deep I have an entire Pinterest board just dedicated to s’mores! This is basically just regular pancakes with a warm marshmallow and chocolate chips sandwiched in between, but ever since I saw this, it is pretty much all I can think about. Can you imagine it when camping???

8. Cake Batter Pancakes- How Sweet It Is




I love the idea of these on a birthday morning. I am feeling like a tradition needs to be born of someone bringing these to me as breakfast in bed every year. Anyone?

9. Oven Pancakes -Stuff Parents Need



This is such a great shortcut to making pancakes, especially if you were serving a big crowd. Especially because there always seems to be a lot of chaos when I am cooking pancakes and I always seem to overcook one batch.

10: DIY Pancake Mix- Mandi Ehman’s Ebook


This book is fantastic for 10,000 reasons but one of the main recipes in it that I use time and time again is her pancake mix. I simply mix up a batch and store it in the fridge for anytime the pancake mood strikes. Always be prepared for pancakes.

I will also mention that we make all our pancakes on this awesome pan we got when we got married. Almost 13 years and still making delicious pancakes!! 

Happy National Pancake Day!!
