Fancy pancakes take 2
I’m writing this post during the commercial break of tonight’s Olympics. Even though I know who wins the women’s all around in gymnastics I still love to watch, it is so exciting!
Anyways, last weekend I planned on making these zucchini pancakes from Smitten Kitchen. Declan loves zucchini bread muffins so these seemed like a great new breakfast food to try. Well, Saturday morning came and I read the ingredient list and they weren’t going to happen. So, I decided to make some more fancy pancakes by simply adding some cinnamon, nutmeg and grated zucchini (I added a whole zucchini finely grated with about 1 cup of mix and 2/3 cup water) to pancake mix. They turned out pretty darn good and I was able to freeze a bunch to have on hand for daycare breakfasts. Adding a parchment paper square between each pancake makes it easy to break one off and throw it in the toaster. Easy, delicious, and one extra place for me to sneak some vegetables into Declan’s diet.
Back to the Olympics! Go USA!
