In honor of National Pancake Day, I wanted to share some an awesome new pancake recipe that I had stirring in my head. The problem is that when I tried to create my “imagination” pancake, it flopped. Like a total fail. So I can’t share it with you as it was just a major cooking failure, even the dogs wouldn’t eat it and you know that’s bad because they eat about anything that they can get their mouth on including Lego pieces.
So instead, I’m sharing some of my favorite pancake things with you all today.
First of all, you know I’m a huge children’s book fan so I made a fun list for you all with some of the kids’ books ALL ABOUT PANCAKES:
Pancakes, Pancakes! : Tyler Makes Pancakes! : Pancakes for Breakfast : Marsupial Sue Presents “The Runaway Pancake” : If You Give a Pig a Pancake : Curious George Makes Pancakes : Pancake Pandemonium : The Pancake That Ran Away
I’m all about pairing literature with children’s activities (I think it must be the former teacher in me). So this past week, we attempted to create our own little pig pancakes after reading If You Give a Pig a Pancake. Now let’s just say attempted… (First, I have to admit that they are totally not homemade pancakes, but as homemade as this house gets, thanks to Bisquick!). And our pigs are definitely some interesting looking pigs and I think that my five year old (pancake in bottom right) has outdone his mom (pancake in top right) in pancake artistry.
And here are my top 5 pins to share with you…
- Pancake Pops
- Birthday Cake Pancakes
- Easy Alphabet Pancakes
- Mini Chocolate Chip Puffins
- Pancake Station
So here’s to having a Happy and Delicious National Pancake Day!
