8 Ultimate Pancake Recipes

Weekends are sacred for me. They're the perfect time to relax and spend time with family and friends. The weekend is also the best time to put a bit more thought into breakfast , since we're usually not as rushed as we are during week days. So when I get the chance to make my favorite breakfast on the weekend, I often choose to make pancakes.

But pancakes are also quick and simple to make, and when you think about it, who would turn down pancakes if you made them any day of the week? Everyone's favorite breakfast dish can be prepared in a moment's time with just a few ingredients and minimum effort. If you're tired of just ordinary pancakes, I've put together a gallery of my favorite pancakes from my website and Food Republic, that'll help you spice up any breakfast. I've even included a few worldly versions of the pancake as well.

Check out these ultimate pancake recipes that are sure to surprise whomever you cook these for. However, I must warn you that these recipes are so good, your friends and family might ask for them almost every day of the week.
