Night or day, any time of year, pancakes are a pleasure in the purest sense. Friday, September 26 is recognized as National Pancake Day. We thought it might be nice to tailor a list of our top pancake recipes — some seasonal, some offbeat, but ALL plain delicious!
Let’s start with the Corn & Crawfish Pancakes you see above from 60 Degrees Mastercrafted. Brunch by the only Master Chef in Houston is a pretty stellar option to have at your disposal, come Sunday mornings. Sautéed spinach, blackened snapper, creole sauce, and sliced avocado to finish off this crafty cake…
Moving on to a recipe that’s super timely…Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes made with locally harvested candied pecans, and adorned with the most delightful cinnamon butter from Sunny Side of the Street in Spring, TX. This is what fall is supposed to taste like!
This next batch arrive courtesy of the Inn at Occidental in wine country. Comfort food from one of the most comfortable lodgings I’ve come across out there. Everything is so quaint and the cuisine is fresh and local. Their Orange Pancakes are no exception!
According to celebrated Celebrity Chef, Curtis Stone, for the freshest, fluffiest pancakes, prepare your batter just prior to cooking. If the batter sits too long, it will start to ferment, giving these breakfast goodies a sour flavor. Luckily that’s the last thing happening here with his Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes with Strawberry-Maple Syrup. Topped with butter and sprinkled with almonds. A healthier take on your cakes.
