Web’s Tastiest: Pancakes Recipes

Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, of course, you want to get off to a good, healthy start. However, anyone with kids or teens knows that some mornings are just too special to worry about a properly balanced meal. Spending time in the kitchen as a family, whipping up something absolutely decadent and definitely too sweet, is the stuff that memories are made of. The Web’s Tastiest Pancake Recipes are here to turn Saturday into Whatta day!

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Cinnamon rolls are fantastic all on their own, so infusing them with pancake goodness is a recipe for a heavenly morning. Top them with a warmed cream cheese glaze drizzle and leave the syrup in the cupboard. (Recipe)

Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

Lemon and blueberry are about as perfect a pair as Sunday morning and pancakes. Following this recipe, complete with amazing step-by-step photos, will result in one summer batch of flapjacks and more than a few satisfied diners.  (Recipe)

Apple Pancakes

An apple a day will keep the dentist away, so when you shred them and throw them into a pancake batter, you’re really making a healthy choice. Sprinkling them with powdered sugar prior to drizzling them in maple syrup is highly recommended…just don’t tell your dentist! (Recipe)

Nutella Pancakes

Need we say more? Nutella. Pancakes. Syrup and strawberries optional. What else is there to know?  (Recipe)

Apple Cider Doughnut Pancakes

Forget leaves and pumpkin spiced lattes, nothing says fall like apple cider doughnuts. This gluten-free recipe results in fluffy pancakes with a faint apple taste and enough cider-y sweet to satisfy your autumn cravings. (Recipe)

Cake Batter Pancakes

Know a breakfast lover with an upcoming birthday? Start the day off with a celebration by making a batch of cheerful cake batter pancakes. Sprinkles for everyone! (Recipe)

Red Velvet Pancakes

If you’re in the know, the term “red velvet” just makes you think “red food dye.” This gorgeous stack is achieved naturally, using blackberries or raspberries, and it’s gluten-free to boot.  (Recipe)

Smashed Raspberry Chocolate Chunk Pancakes

Joy the Baker says these pancakes fit into a very specific category of breakfast: breakfast dessert. We say: Bring. It. On.  A simple combination of buttermilk, melted butter, chocolate chunks, and fresh raspberries yields a delightful, post-breakfast treat. (Recipe)

Gingerbread Pancakes

As long as the word “pancake” is involved, kids will be excited to both to eat and make them. Therefore gingerbread pancakes, shaped like little men and flavored like gingerbread, could result in an excitement overload. You’ve been warned. (Recipe)

Vanilla Yogurt Pancake

Want to know what secret ingredient will get you pancakes yo-go nuts over? This recipe details how to create a small, light, and fluffy batch of pancakes that have a nice tangy taste thanks to the unexpected addition of vanilla yogurt. (Recipe)

Venezuelan Chocolate Pancakes

When the term “mouth watering” was coined, this had to have been the image referenced. Uh-mazing. Adding grated chocolate to the pancake batter and making chocolate sauce for a topping? We’re definitely not in breakfast anymore, Dorothy. (Recipe)

Peanut Butter & Jelly Pancakes

Paying homage to our last Web’s Tastiest, these pancakes are smothered with melted peanut butter and a jam topping. That’s the good kind of smothering. Mmmm.  (Recipe)

Maple Oat Bacon Pancakes

Breakfast isn’t complete without bacon. So even if you’re skipping eggs and going for pancakes, you need to find a way to squeeze them in. This sweet and savory gluten-free recipe does just that. (Recpe)

  1. Thanks for the shout-out on our vanilla yogurt pancakes; aren’t they wonderfully light and refreshing. One of our favorite recipes, and it has been kid-tested. They loved it!

  2. One of my teammates, Aaron, just said let’s make pancakes after seeing this on stumbleupon.com website, so we did! Seriously! We just made 4 of these recipes in 2 batches–the Cake Batter, Yogurt, Oatmeal & Smashed Raspberry Chocolate chunk — incredible!

  3. Actually Matthew I don’t know where you’re from but in New Zealand you can get heaps of flavours of cider… raspberry, feijoa, pear just to name a few so it is correct to say apple cider.

  4. I agree with Emily – NO pumpkin pancakes? What is this? Would have been a perfect list if pumpkin pancakes were included.

  5. Ugh- no wonder there are so many overweight children out there if this is what they’re being fed for breakfast. Childhood is the time to teach good habits-c’mon- moms and dads- you should love your children enough not to do this to them. Gross.

  6. Liz, I think pancakes on occasion are fine. I grew up eating pancakes, i’m not obese. I am actually a senior nutrition, dietetics, and food management major and I see no problem in a child having pancakes on occasion. It is the lack of activity and all of the processed foods that are making children overweight.

  7. @Chelsea,

    I agree with you. It is not pancakes like this that makes kids fat, but lack of exercise/movement. I ate pancakes like this too when I was a kid, and was not obese, but I rode my bike a lot and swam and did all that stuff. Maybe kids shouldn’t eat six (or eight or nine) of the larger ones, or eat them EVERY DAY, but once in a while (I used to have them every couple weekends) is fine. Some kids are very picky eaters, won’t eat fruit any other way. I know a nine year old that is thin as a rail, pretty much only likes hamburgers and french fries.

  8. Well I wasn’t hungry before I decided to use Stumble Upon and now I have ‘stumbled’ across this page and I am now looking to see if I have the ingredients to make the peanut butter and jelly pancakes

  9. Pancakes, fine. Dessert, on occasion, fine. It’s the dessert disguised as breakfast that I have a problem with. Cake batter pancakes? That’s a disgusting thing to let your child eat for breakfast. This is the same kind of mentality that makes it okay for us to make cookie crisp cereal and chocolate poptarts. SO much sugar, which (by the way) IS processed food. Then we wonder why our kids won’t eat fruit. Why does breakfast have to be unhealthy for you to enjoy together as a family?

  10. I have never been a fan of pancakes. I am a bit of a chocoholic but seeing these Venezuelan ones with the sauce looks so tempting and rich. Think I will have to spread the word to my wife.

  11. This cakes look delicious.I want to make them for my sister-in-law’s birthday party. But she is strictly vegetarian. Can I use any alternative ingredient in place of egg please?

  12. Just stumbledupon this site. Awesome, we love pancakes, very nice collection of good ones. I recently made some with walnut filling and fresh vanilla. Check it out and give it a go, I am sure you will like to add it to this collection.

  13. O stop it already! These are all so yummy looking, would the kids get mad if I had some? Try to get me not to eat them ALL! teehee, just kidding!

  14. Not too sure why ppl would go on a site called “Web’s Tastiest: Pancakes Recipes” and complain about things like sugar and fat in the recipes. Not sure what the expectations were, but I don’t think this is where you look for healthy pancakes.
