Today is National Pancake Day, and I wanted to pay  tribute to America’s favorite breakfast. So, in honor of the flapjack, here is “short stack” of some of my favorite pancake recipes and treats! Enjoy!!

1. Fried Apple Pancake Rings

Developed by one of my favorite Top Chef contestants, Carla Hall (current co-host of The Chew), these delicious pancake treats look scrumptious!!

2. Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

I found this recipe for cinnamon roll pancakes over at Recipe Girl. Seriously….mixing fluffy pancakes and a cinnamon roll (and frosting!) Yes please!

3. Bacon Pancakes

I found this vintage advertisement for Aunt Jemima pancake mix, and longed for simpler times….when people had the ingenuity and lack of respect for heart disease to derive such a tasty breakfast concoction….I think we  need to bring back the bacon-cake….and soon….

4. Cake Batter Pancakes

Wouldn’t it be fun to make these for your child’s birthday breakfast? (Or you know, on a random Tuesday?)

5. Mini Pancake Muffins Mini pancake muffins dunked in syrup with chocolate chips too??! These look amazing!

6. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I found this recipe over at Lauren’s Latest, and thought it sounded like such a homey and delicious breakfast!

7. Brownie Batter Pancakes

Brownie batter meets pancakes in one chocolatey perfect union.

8. Caramel Apple Pancakes

Holy yum. Lightly seasoned with cinnamon, these pancakes are topped with an apple-pie like topping for one memorable breakfast!

9. “The King” Pancakes

Have a breakfast fit for “the king.” With a nod to Elvis, these pancakes come chock full of peanut butter and peanut butter chips, and are topped with bananas. Thank you, thank you very much. =)

10. Gingerbread Men Pancakes

Who says it has to be Christmas to make a gingerbread man? Your kids will love these gingerbread flavored pancakes!
