Cinnamon Pancakes

I have a confession to make. I’m not super dad. I know, I know, shocker, right? Like most parents there are days where I just don’t feel like being in the kitchen. Usually, this is 6-8am. And so I found myself in the frozen food aisle a few weeks ago buying (shudder)…..frozen pancakes. I’m so ashamed. Now, in my mind I tried to absolve myself of feeling guilty, but when I saw the look on my daughter’s face (“was I bad, daddy?”) I knew I couldn’t let this happen again.

And so I tweaked my traditional pancake recipe, then doubled it, making a batch large enough to keep them in pancakes for a while. By freezing them 2-per in sandwich bags, they can be easily microwaved or dropped in the toaster while I slumber.

I’ve included a buttermilk substitute here, because I rarely have it on hand and figure many of you are in the same position. Also, this recipe makes fluffy pancakes, which my kids prefer. I, on the other hand, like mine thin. About another 1/8th cup of milk will do the trick.

Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

Like cheesecake and excuses, this is something I like to make but rarely partake in. I don’t like bananas but my kids (and most of the population) do. The chocolate chips add a little surprise that keeps them coming back for more. This bread tastes even better if stored in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

I'll typically double the recipe and bake a regular size loaf and then a dozen mini loaves. This way there is something for everyone to enjoy together without the risk of the family getting tired of it and wasting half a loaf. And the mini loaves are just the right size for gifting or taking to work/school.
