In the book I was reading, the female character made her partner a stack of pancakes for their 'morning after'breakfast, served with warmed maple syrup.

Made my mouth water. I rarely make pancakes at home, not worth it when cooking for one, and when I indulge in breakfast out, usually go for the eggs, sausage and home fries. I miss breakfast out at McDonald's with the grandkids for hot cakes.

Strangely enough, allrecipes.com had pancakes in their weekly E-mail, timely as I needed some inspiration  for my letter 'P'.  Inspired so much, I had French Toast for breakfast, easier to make.

Here's the link for a variety of pancake recipes.


If you don't care to go to the link, there is one recipe I'd like to share...for Cinnamon Syrup.
For pancakes and waffles, also good on apple slices and strawberries.


1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 TB all purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup water

Stir together white and brown sugars with flour and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir in vanilla and water. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring often. Continue to boil and stir until mixture thickens to syrup consistency. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Pancakes are fun to make, but seem like such a big process for doing so for a family. I like the pancakes at McDonald's myself :)

When I was a kid I used to have molasses on my pancakes. LOL

We don't have pancakes often, but I usually make them from scratch when we do and now I have good old maple syrup on them. It's really good on bacon pancakes. ;-)
