Recipe #2: Pancake Pizzaz

We received many lovely gifts for our wedding!

We are so spoiled!

One of the gifts we received is a pancake griddle set.

It came with a griddle pan, a nylon flipper and a pancake mix.

So one night we decided to make pancakes.

Now, I've made pancakes before... but I'd never experimented with adding anything to the mix, or making my own. Plus I'd never used a griddle pan before.. so I've decided to count this as one of my 100 new recipes. 

Cinnamon Vanilla Pancakes

Desired amount of pancake mix {homemade or store bought}
-prepare according to mix directions or recipe
pure vanilla extract
In our case:
1/2 cup pancake mix
1/2 cup water or milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
You wouldn't think that a change so small would make such a difference, but these pancakes were fantastic! We topped them with Real maple syrup. Which can sometimes be a little too bitter... but with these tasty sweet pancakes its perfect! Plus you can use things you've already got in your pantry! No money spent! :)

Check out our cute Le Cruset Maple Syrup container. We picked it up in Quebec! 

Mix it up and experiment, add toppings and mix ins that you love! Or what you've got in the pantry! Use what you've got :) Serve it with your favorite breakfast sides. We kept it simple and just had sausage links on the side.

What are your favorite pancake mix-ins and toppings?

All for now,
