On the weekends, my hubby and I like to relax and reconnect. It just so happens that we like to do this over a really decadent breakfast. This past weekend, we got thick cut, local bacon (life changing), brewed some vanilla cookie dough coffee and then decided to get a little creative with some pancakes. Instead of making them normally, we added some coffee in the batter and they were delicious! I actually don’t drink a lot of coffee, but the sweetness and coffee bean flavor in these were perfect (I even ate one without butter or syrup. I barely remember it because I ate it so fast, but I recall the beginning).
This weekend, when it is cold and blistery outside, make these, they will warm your soul (and your belly).
Vanilla Coffee Pancakes
- Aunt Jemima Buttermilk box pancake mix
- 2/3 part coffee
- 1/3 part water
- warm maple syrup
- Mix the pancake mix and liquids. I do this by eye, so you are welcome to use the side of the box. If I can write take a spoon and drizzle a batter R in the rest of the batter and have it stay for a couple of seconds before dissolving, it’s perfect (a tradition I did with my grandma).
- Cook on a griddle and serve with lots of syrup and butter!
