The Greatest Breakfast of Your Life (French Toast Pancakes)
I must confess. I am really sorry. My blog has failed you.
Where have all the new pancake recipes gone? No really. Where oh where did you baby girls go. A few days ago, I was skimming through my blog reader and someone’s blog caught my eye (as do all her recipes). I just knew what I would be making in the next few days and for the next few days.
If you haven’t already checked out Susan’s blog, it is one of the most inspirational I read. Actually I take that back, every single post she posts captivates me in some way or another. She also has also has some of the best recipes on the planet.
I have been eating chocolate, orange or chocolate chip pancakes everyday for a while but today I branched out.
French Toast Pancakes
Who knew breakfast could become even cooler.
Take any of your favorite pancake recipes. I took my orange zest (without the chocolate) batter because I had made a big thing of it earlier in the week. You can use boxed mix, protein pancakes, chocolate, vanilla, coconut. I don’t know be creative.
It isn’t that hard to create. You already know how to create pancakes and you already know how to create French toast. Now all you have to do is add the two together. (Good thing I was a math major to help you out).
I personally used the mixture of (for my french toast transformation):
1 egg+1/2 cup egg whites
¼ cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon juice (to bring out the orange zest ever more)
If I wasn’t using some sort of orangey pancake, I would have skipped the lemon, and added something sweet. Oh well-that gives me something to do tomorrow.
These pancakes are super dense. They were light and fluffy until transforming them into French toast pancakes. They also are very moist. If that isn’t your jive-no matter more for me.
Questions for you:
How do you make your french toast?
I like mine more eggy personally.
