Happy Tuesday Everyone!! If you haven’t heard today is National Pancake Day at IHOP. Which means free pancakes for you. All you have to do is give a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network. Here in Hampton Roads donations are going to the Children’s Hospital of the Kings Daughter (CHKD) Check your local IHOP to see where they are donating the proceeds for the day.
In honor of National Pancake Day we here at Southern Roots Kitchen are going to celebrate with sharing some of our quick pancake favorites. These are just some items we have found that work perfectly for our busy mornings on the go or even a mid-day snack. 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 there ‘Execlusive 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 off different microwaves, call for different cooking times so sometimes my pancakes were a little hard, or the steam made them a little too soft.
