Our Favorite Pancakes for National Pancake Day!

I think that everyone can agree that there is nothing like waking up to the smell of pancakes. As soon as the batter hits the pan, the sweet smell of vanilla and warm maple fills the kitchen. It’s the perfect alarm clock!

We’re all thinking about pancakes here at Stonewall Kitchen because today is National Pancake Day! Don’t get me wrong, a classic pancake drizzled with a generous amount of maple syrup is still a favorite, but we always love to get creative with our dishes.

With warm weather approaching, we thought it would be fun to share some Spring-inspired pancakes! So grab your mixing bowls, batter up and enjoy the pancakes on today’s menu.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Pancakes

Yep! You heard me. Everyone loves a delicious PB&J, but why stop there? Follow the instructions on our Farmhouse Pancake and Waffle Mix and add some peanut butter to the batter before pouring into the pan for the perfect hint of peanut butter goodness! Then top them with your favorite jams to seal the deal! We suggest our Strawberry Jam, but any of our jams would be a great match! Full recipe here.

Carrot Cake Pancakes

Carrot Cake is a popular Easter dessert, but everyone can enjoy the cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg flavors year round! Using the Farmhouse Pancake & Waffle Mix again, we mix shredded carrots, spices, brown sugar and vanilla in the batter, pour a generous amount in the pan and stack the pancakes with homemade Maple Cream Cheese Butter (recipe below) and drizzle some maple syrup on top, of course! Full recipe here.

Maple Cream Cheese Butter

Combine all of the ingredients for the butter in a bowl and with an electric mixer, beat until smooth.

Lemon Raspberry Ricotta Pancakes

Nothing gets you more excited for the warm months like the citrusy taste of lemon and other fresh fruit! This is one of our favorite pancake recipes because not only does it taste great but it has such a beautiful presentation! The majority of the flavor is right in the pancake with ricotta cheese and our Red Raspberry Jam mixed right into the batter. When the pancakes are ready to be served, we topped our stack with Lemon Curd and drizzled some Raspberry Syrup on top! Full recipe here.

You now know what we’ll be eating in celebration of National Pancake Day! Pancakes for lunch is acceptable, right?
