Brown Sugar Pancakes are the best pancake recipe ever! These pancakes are made with simple ingredients, so they are easy, soft, fluffy and cook perfectly every time.
There once was a time when making pancakes from scratch scared me. I mean I wasn’t scared OF pancakes…but I was scared to MAKE them. It wasn’t some overly dramatic phobia…it was just that…well…every time I tried I epically failed.
Dang pancakes, with all their simplicity…I just couldn’t get the hang of it! I either uncooked and flipped too early, resulting in splattered batter errwherrr. OR I overcooked, burned and tried to disguise said burn with an unhealthy waterfall of maple syrup, fooling no one.
It was just one of those foods that I just preferred to leave up to the profesh staff at my local ihop. or is it iHop? APPLE YOU’RE RUINING MY LIFE!
Anywhooooo. Since I am not a quitter…except when it comes to diet and exercise…I grabbed a fun spatula and got back on the horse. Also, let’s just say that buying a fun spatula sometimes is all the incentive one needs. That and the promise of sugary carbs at the finish line.
