Gearing Up For National Pancake Day

This title is making my mouth water! You better stock up on butter and maple syrup because February 28th is National Pancake Day. You can’t see me behind my computer screen, but know that I am grinning from ear to ear as I write this.  Personally, I’m a plain pancake kinda girl. I am purist if you will. I’ve tried every variation – stuffed, topped, fruit, nuts, cream cheese. None of it is for me.  The syrup is sweet enough. I don’t know? Sometimes I can take a side bowl of fruit on the side. But most of the time, even that is pushing it. I just want pancakes… and bacon. But I want bacon with everything – so that goes without saying.

I guess you can say that National Pancake Day is every single day for me. LOL.

However, in this household, I’m the only person who likes PLAIN pancakes. My children and husband all like a ton of toppings. I guess you can say my husband is an absolute foodie (remember when the Wall Street Journal called him one)  That man couldn’t disagree with me more!!!

So, in honor of National Pancake Day, I’ve collected a few amazing pancake recipes in case you want to go NUTS in the kitchen. Here you go:
