Hosting a Pancake Party!

pancake

Isn’t it funny how switching the norm around a bit can make something more exciting or unusual?  This can definitely be said about having breakfast for dinner!  It was one of my favorite meals growing up and still is today…especially if we were having pancakes.  Easy to make and universally pleasing, having a pancake party, whether with friends or just the family, is the perfect way to spend an evening!

One of my 1960’s cookbooks offers some wonderful pancake recipes to get your party off on the right foot!

To start, you need the basic recipe, and believe it or not, the books says to start with Bisquik!

Basic Pancake Recipe:

4 cups Bisquik

2 eggs

3 1/1 cups of milk

Stir until combined then try any of the adaptations that follow:

Apple Pancakes

Fold 2 cups of chopped apple, 2 tbsp. of sugar and 1 tbsp. of lemon juice into the batter.  Serve with Cinnamon-Maple Syrup.

Banana Pancakes (one of my favorites)

Fold 1 cup mashed ripe banana and 2 tbsp. of sugar into batter.  Serve with honey.

Blueberry Pancakes

And 2 tbsp. of sugar into batter; gently fold in 1 cup of fresh, frozen, or drained canned blueberries.  Dust pancakes with powdered sugar.

Spicy Blueberry Pancakes

Stir into batter 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1//2 tsp. nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp. cloves.  Gently fold in 1 cup fresh, frozen, or drained canned blueberries.  Serve with Lemon Syrup.

Orange Nut Pancakes

Fold 2 tbsp. grated orange peel and 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans into batter.  Serve warm with maple syrup.

  1. I love pancakes, and try to make a big brunch on the weekends. Have you ever attended a pancake buffet at a party? I haven’t but heard that it’s getting popular, where you have a variety of pancakes and then a whole table offering of toppings, from syrup to fresh fruits, even cool whip and chocolate sauce. Sounds like a fun idea. Also, I’m always up for having breakfast for dinner. Thanks for sharing these recipes, I think might just try the Orange Nut recipe.
