Easter-Egg Pancakes

I have something to confess...I am not much of a "breakfast person". I always eat breakfast, but it is not my most favorite meal of the day. Unlike my sister, who I swear only gets up for the mere purpose of eating a good breakfast ha. I love you Rachy :-).

However, it's a different story if pancakes are on the menu! Oh how I love a good pancake! So, I decided to create a fun twist--and make colorful Easter Egg Pancakes...perfect for your Easter day breakfast.
-strawberry shortcake: strawberries and whipping cream (in a can)
-blueberry crush: strawberry jam, blueberries, whipping cream and powdered sugar
-elvis-cake: bananas, peanut butter, and strawberry jam (this one is dedicated to the king of rock since he loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches...) 
-sprinkle cake: my little Sagey girl helped me with this one...whipping cream and sprinkles :-)

And because I love you so, I am going to share with you my (as of lately) FAVORITE pancake recipe! They are not only light and fluffy, but so very moist (oh gosh I hate that word but its the only one I could think of) and it makes for the PERFECT pancake! The secret ingredient(s) are:
who would have thought, right?! Well without further adieu here is the recipe (you can thank me later) :-)

Cornmeal Pancakes:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
3 T sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
whisk ingredients together and than add:
1/3 cup raisins (optional)
1 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
2 eggs
1/4 cup oil
***if you want your pancakes to be colorful when you cut into them...simply divide your mixture into however many colors you want (I used blue, green, yellow and pink) and add a few drops of food coloring to each. :-) Than cook on griddle.

  6. I think the blue berries would be my fave, but I really think you should create one with bacon as stripes! I mean bacon is the best part of breakfast! YUM! xoxo A-
