    5 Spot Banana Pancakes

    After you ladle portions of the batter onto the griddle, top each pancake with a few slices of banana, then turn the cakes and cook until they're lightly browned. You'll see that these fruit-topped breakfast treats really hit the spot.

    Oven-Puffed Pancake

    Instead of cooking single pancakes on a griddle, make one big one in a cast-iron skillet and bake it. When it gets puffy and golden, take it out of the oven and top it with powdered sugar and jam.
  • Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes

    Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes

    The texture of these pancakes is fluffy and light due to the beaten egg whites in the batter, but the taste is extra-rich because of the buttermilk and ricotta cheese. Grated lemon peel adds just a touch of citrus. We recommend serving these with fresh strawberries or bananas for a sweet and tangy breakfast delight.

    Carrot Cake Pancakes

    Use the small holes of a box grater to finely grate the carrots by hand; if you use a food processor, the carrots will be too wet, making the pancakes dense and less tender. Go ahead, have your veggies for breakfast.
