It's really a simple recipe. Simply combine your dry ingredients, add two wet ingredients, pour in your mix-ins and place on the griddle.
The fun really starts with assembling the pancakes or "plating" them. I have a family of three, so this recipe was perfect. Take one pancake and garnish with toppings. Top with another pancake and toppings. Finish with one more pancake and toppings. Complete with a dollop of maple syrup.
I recommend having these for New Year's Eve breakfast. What a great way to conclude 2012!
Hope you have a great New Year!
