If there’s one breakfast food that always seems to win hearts, it has to be French toast. But what if you could take that same deliciousness and create a pancake out of it?
That’s right—French toast pancakes are a real thing, and they’re every bit as amazing as they sound. This recipe is perfect for a weekend morning when you have time to relax and enjoy a nice breakfast together with your loved ones.
Serve French toast pancakes with a drizzle of maple syrup and your favorite berries. For a savory twist, serve them with bacon or sausage. If you’re looking for something a little lighter, top with a dollop of yogurt or some slices of fresh fruit.

How To Make French Toast Pancakes
In a bowl, first whisk the egg, and then add buttermilk, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Stir with a whisk.
In another bowl, mix all the dry ingredients: sifted flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda, as well as half of the sugar. If desired, you can add some ground cinnamon.
Combine dry and wet ingredients, mixing thoroughly with a whisk until you get a homogeneous dough without lumps.
Warm up the frying pan and pour out small portions of dough. If necessary, you can grease the pan with oil to fry the first pancakes. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side.
In second bowl or dish large enough to dip the pancakes, add milk, remaining sugar and cinnamon. Stir well.
Dip each pancake in the mixture for a few seconds. The pancake should be soaked in liquid, but not saturated.
Fry the pancakes for another minute on each side on low heat. Once they’re cooked, add your favorite toppings and serve.
