Pancakes were always a weekend breakfast treat for me growing up. My dad would make them super thin, just the way I liked them, and I would devour stack after stack after stack. They were my absolute favorite- and they still kind of are. Even though AJ hates pancakes, I still make them most weekend mornings. I keep hoping that one day he will wake up and be just as excited about them as I am. Almost 7 years later and I still have not succeeded, but I will not give up – I am persistent like that.
The dogs, however, love when I make pancakes because, of course, I make one for them. They usually get the first pancake because, for whatever reason, the first pancake always turns out meh. Does anyone know why this happens? So annoying! Anyway, they don’t care what it looks like as long as they get to join in on the delicious morning treats too!
When I was a kid the only pancakes I liked were the super thin pancakes my dad made. Big and fluffy pancakes? Forget about it- I wanted nothing to do with those! Go figure. I have changed my ways a little since then, but I still prefer thin pancakes over any other kind. I think part of the reason I like them so much is because I can slather on my favorite jam, (usually strawberry or raspberry) roll them up, and dunk them in syrup. YUM!
If you’ve never made your pancakes super thin and rolled them up with jam in the center, you are seriously missing out. I am telling you, once you go thin, you’ll never go back!
These pancakes are such a cinch to throw together and they are mouthwateringly delicious. I cheat a little and use Bisquick, but if you are feeling more adventurous than me, feel free to make a homemade pancake mix.
*Note: I have not tried thinning out a homemade pancake mix, so I cannot guarantee the same results, but I would assume they still taste just as delicious. Give these pancakes a try and let me know how you like them! 🙂
