Recipe: Buttermilk S’more Pancakes

 

Buttermilk Smore Pancakes

Growing up I never liked pancakes. Back then, I was strictly a French toast kind of girl. But, things changed during my second pregnancy when I started CRAVING pancakes.

The summer that I was very pregnant with my son, I made pancakes almost every morning. I perfected my homemade recipe and experimented with a smorgasbord of toppings. Things like basic butter and fancy syrups, homemade jams, fresh fruit… and a s’more-inspired concoction!

Buttermilk S’more Pancakes are one of those summer treats that make breakfast feel a little extra special. It’s practically dessert, but served with eggs and bacon, I figure it’s all good. My kids adore these fancy pancakes and it’s a fun way to bring the spirit of a summer campfire indoors.

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

3. By hand, fold in chocolate chips, graham crackers pieces, and marshmallows.

5. Then, flip and cook on the other side about 30 seconds.

6. Remove pancakes from the heat, stack, and top with s’more toppings, butter, and a drizzle of syrup. Enjoy!
