Pancakes Gone Wild
What's your favorite pancake house pancake? Chocolate chip? Butter-pecan? Strawberry-banana? How about "plain" blueberry?
Pancakes are a wonderful launching pad for favorite your breakfast fantasies. It's easy to make a basic batter, then either stir in your favorite enhancements, or sprinkle them on top as the cakes bake. We particularly love diced crystallized ginger; toasted coconut; and chips of all flavors (cinnamon, chocolate, cappuccino...)
You may think this is a rather small recipe — only 3/4 cup of flour? — but it's perfect for a couple, or several kids. It yields 8 fairly large (4") pancakes; or 14 smaller (2 1/2" to 3") pancakes, a very kid-friendly size.
