TOP Toppings for Your Pancake
If you ask me what my favorite pancake topping is, I say one or two additional pancakes
Let’s get serious here, because pancake toppings are a serious matter. At least in our home. A well-chosen (better yet, homemade) topping can do magic. Even the simplest pancake recipe becomes lavish and inspires your kids to say wise things like: “I could eat these pancakes for the rest of my life!”
So, with all due respect, let’s set the classic maple and pancake syrup with a pat of butter and go wilder.
#1 Sugar and spice
The best thing about pancakes is that they are so simple and yet, they somehow always manage to be extra delicious. If you are into simple things, cover them in plain sugar or cinnamon. Or mix both to get crunchy cinnamon sugar. How about lavender sugar? You can add instant flavor and aroma to your pancakes by preparing this amazing topping. Mix dried lavender flower buds in sugar, let it sit for 24 hours and sift the buds out.
You can also add spices like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, or vanilla in warmed maple syrup to get a whole new flavor, but as I said, we’re past maple.
#2 Honey and syrups
Honey is the topping that resembles maple syrup the most, in texture, color, and taste. The best part is that honey is very healthy, nutritious, and low in calories. You can also use it as sweetener added to the batter.
Other syrups include chocolate, coconut, fruit syrups. You can prepare homemade syrups by mixing your two favorite flavors in one recipe. Here are some ideas: vanilla-rice syrup, buttery maple, honey-orange, molasses-cinnamon, mixed berry… Serve warm and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
we will come up with some more topping in the upcoming days 🙂
