In my humble opinion, people love pancakes because not only it’s fluffy and light like a cake, but you can change its flavor by drizzling it with your favorite syrup, honey, chocolate sauce, or even serve it with fruits. Oh, and let’s not forget the butter.
To be creative with pancakes, all you have to do is think of it as a cake, every flavor you can add to a cake, you can add the same flavor or even ingredients in pancake. This Gingerbread pancake tastes like Gingerbread cookies.
You have to be careful when making the pancake batter, do not to over mix it, otherwise you won’t get a fluffy and light pancake.
