Pancake Ideas

Not only is breakfast the most important meal of the day, it is the only meal we always eat together every day no matter what our schedules look like. We are all such huge breakfast lovers that we sometimes enjoy breakfast for lunch or dinner, too.

Pancakes have always been a favorite in my family. However, sometimes we want to jazz up our pancakes and try something different. We’ve put together a list of 33 pancake add-ins you will surely enjoy! No more complaining of “plain pancakes” with these add-ins. Simply start with our homemade pancake mix and add in these great options for some delicious homemade pancakes!

Pancakes are obviously a family favorite for me, but having them every morning for breakfast can get tiring for the kids.
