I am excited to write about all things I am passionate about...and some, well, that I may not be passionate about. But all things are happening in this LIFE. And, I want to document and have accountablity to living life with intention. And so it goes...

Bring on the Pancakes!

What is this now? My 3rd post about pancakes... at least? I am having so much fun trying all of these different pancake recipes on my critics! I especially love the mornings that I can accomplish a hot breakfast. It really doesn't happen as often as I would like unfortunately. But it did today!

Cinnamon Bun Pancakes are just delicioius! We all thought they were super! I have even been pondering a pancake feed at our house with a variety of pancakes for people to try. So far, Cinnamon Bun Pancakes are my favorite.

They fry up darker making your critics think that you may have used whole wheat flour (GASP!), but after their first bite, your critics will thank you for making such a beautiful pancake. Even though it looks dark. And looks dark ONLY because there is bountiful amounts of cinnamon in them (and also if you grill them up on your cast iron skillet and your skillet is too hot).

I did also go ahead and make Maple-Butter Icing for Pancakes to go on top of the pancakes. And yes, despite the very traditional pull of the maple syrup I also had sitting out, the critics loved the Maple-Butter Icing for Pancakes too.

It was just a winner of a morning over here. Except that eating Cinnamon Bun Pancakes this morning caused us to be a little bit later than our oldest "child", type A, critic would have preferred. But she and the others made it to school on time with a tummy full of Cinnamon Bun Pancakes.

I am guessing that the minute you take a look at the Cinnamon Bun Pancakes you are going to want to make them too. Mine were all down the hatch before I could get any pictures of them. If that tells you anything...

Oh my goodness! I have been wanting to make them since I saw them on PW the other day but I can't have any sugar and I am not sure my will power and self control are strong enough yet :)

Dawn, I am so proud of you and how you are changing your lifestyle. Sorry these tempting recipes probably don't help. But, for this recipe there is only 3 T. sugar and a bit of corn syrup. They really do taste good without syrup or icing. I don't know how much sugar is too much, but they weren't loaded so maybe you could eat them? I hope! Just don't put the icing on them...uh, yeah...lots of sugar in it! Keep up the good work girlie!

I had to laugh when I read your comment about your Type A daughter! I'm surprised I didn't hear about it this morning. She mentioned something yesterday about never getting to school on time. I asked her what time she got there and she said "Like 8:02." I told her technically it's right on time... just in time to get to class. Oh, Natalie!
