Best Pancakes

Everyone loves pancakes, especially on weekends. Here are some great recipes that are variations of the standard fare.

Everyday Pancakes

The basic pancake is made from a simple batter of eggs, flour, milk and baking powder for leavening. You can use different types of flour if you want to experiment with whole wheat or buckwheat. And you can also add fruit to the mixture.

Marion Cunningham’s Lemon Pancakes

These spectacular pancakes, adapted from a Marion Cunningham recipe, are made with cottage cheese, lemon peel and beaten egg whites, which makes them puff up like a soufflé.

Dutch Baby

This large, fluffy pancake is excellent for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dessert any time of year. And it comes together in about five blessed minutes.

Oatmeal Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes

Make up a batch, freeze them in packets of three, and thaw in the microwave for a quick, substantial breakfast.

Maple Pecan Pancakes

Instead of using only wheat flour in these pancakes, I’ve combined whole-wheat flour and almond flour.
