Taste Test Tuesday: Pillsbury Mini Maple Burst Pancakes

In honor of National Pancake Day, we here at Southern Roots Kitchen are going to celebrate by sharing some of our quick pancake favorites. These are just some items we have found that works perfectly for our busy mornings on the go or even a mid-day snack. The first item is……

Pillsbury Mini Pancakes ‘Maple Burst’n

 

These mini pancakes are just yummy.  Think buttermilk silver dollar pancakes with the syrup already added. No more messing with syrup and creating a sticky desk or messy hands. You put the pancakes in the microwave on high for 60 seconds, let them sit for about 10-15 seconds, and you have breakfast. Be careful the bag will be hot and steamy. At first, I was very skeptical about eating these pancakes, I was worried about not having syrup, but figured I would give them a try anyway. Just make sure that you lay the back down flat, or the pancakes won’t heat up correctly. It’s a great on-the-go meal, snack, breakfast, whatever you want to call it. LOL

Pillsbury has done their job with this one. One drawback is you can’t find these in the grocery store. After researching this and contacting Pillsbury I found out that they are one of their ‘Exclusive Club Products’ which means you can only find them in stores like Sam’s, Costco’s, and BJ’s.

I’m giving these pancakes 3 spoons, based on different microwaves, call for different cooking times so sometimes my pancakes were a little hard or the steam made them a little too soft.


Taste Test Tuesday: Harry and David Pumpkin Spice Pancake Mix

Happy Tuesday and thanks for stopping by the kitchen today. We hope your week is starting off great. Last week we talked about Pumpkin bread and butter. This week it’s more pumpkin for you. Another visit to our local Harry and David store landed us some Pumpkin Spice Pancake Mix.



These pancakes were pretty good. You could take the all spice, nutmeg and the ginger in them. All you have to do is add water. We know some people have questions about how flavored pancake mixes really taste, well we can assure you that this one really tastes like Pumpkin Spice.

The bag says it makes 18 pancakes, but as you can see we made our pancakes pretty big. So instead 18 we made 8 large ones. Next time we’ll try for regular size pancakes and we are thinking of adding walnuts or pecans to the batter, and cream cheese butter on top.

To finish off breakfast we added some fluffy cheese eggs to the plate. You can’t go wrong with these fluffy pancakes, and they even taste good if you have to reheat them.

Kids love them too. That’s my pumpkin (my nephew, Antonio) enjoying his Harry and David Pumpkin Spiced pancakes.

Check your local Harry and David stores for this pancake mix. Unfortunately it is not located on their website just yet. It’s $6.95 for a 13oz. bag or 2 for $12.
