We love our breakfast around here, especially homemade pancakes, and it seems you do too! I’ve been on a breakfast run lately but I assure you soon I’ll even that out. It might be because there was Easter and Easter brunches so I wanted to give you some new dishes and now Mother’s Day is right around the corner so why not continue a good thing? In case you missed the latest breakfast recipes they were Easy 30 Minute Caramel Pecan Sticky Buns, Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe, The BEST Blueberry Pancakes, Ham & Cheese Overnight Breakfast Lasagna, and Chorizo Breakfast Tacos just to name a few!
I’ve been holding out on this easy pancake recipe. I’ve been making this for a few years and I just never got around to posting it. I apologize. It’s the greatest shame because these homemade pancakes are amazing. Sinfully good is how I would describe them! I have a little bit of a confession. I’m totally a boxed pancake mix kind of a girl. Have been for life. Then on a whim I decided to try these out and I kind of wonder why I still have that box in my pantry because I never use it! That’s all right though because my hubs still does. I don’t know about you but if your hubs is making you pancakes you don’t care what or how he’s making them because it means you don’t to make breakfast, lunch or dinner because easy pancakes are totally a great option for any of those!
Easy Homemade Pancakes Ingredients
- Baking Powder
That’s it!! I bet your have all those ingredients already!
Wait. Did I burst your little bubble? You thought I loved to make every meal for my family didn’t you? I mean after all I am a food blogger. HA! HA! HA! I don’t think so. There are so many times when the last thing I want to do is pick up a pot or pan and try to make something. I’m just like you.
I purposely go to the grocery store after work on Thursday or Friday to get groceries for the weekend and make the hubs get the kiddos. This also means he tackles dinner one night a week and I love it. Sure, it’s usually mac and cheese or pizza or something the kids want, but I don’t care. By that point in the week I just want someone else to take care of dinner! If I lay out a recipe and the ingredients sometimes he makes that. He’s pretty awesome like that!
He’s actually so awesome I told my friend the other day I think half the ladies and town have a crush on him secretly. She agreed and told me to count my blessings. Who doesn’t melt when they see him outside flying kites with the girls or riding Ranger or playing catch? I know I do and apparently everyone else does as they make comments on how amazing he is.
