French Toast Pancakes

    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.

    French toast pancakes

    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.

    What You Need to Make French Toast Pancakes

    One of the best things about this recipe is that you likely already have the ingredients in your pantry and fridge, with the exception of buttermilk.

    If you want to make the pancakes healthier, you can replace part of the flour with oatmeal or whole grain flour.
