Pancakes are the breakfast food that immediately makes the day better. They’re fluffy and light, with customizable options for not just what goes on top, but what flavorful additions you sneak into the batter. With that easy addition of happiness, it’s a breakfast food that people will find an excuse to eat at any time of day.
But for those searching for their go-to pancake recipe with so many options, that fully customized meal needs a nudge to guarantee the flavor and consistency brings a smile to every face at the table. Debating if you should use buttermilk for an already thick batter or if the batter is somehow too thick takes the joy out of that first bite of fluffy perfection.
