I don’t have a lot of memories of 2nd grade, but there is one that stands out to me. My teacher made green pancakes for us on St Patrick’s Day, in an electric skillet. So, years ago I thought it would be a fun thing to do for Katie, and then I thought, why not pink pancakes for Valentine’s Day?  We have had some fun with the colored pancake idea through the years. We have also done blue muffins for when her cousin Eli was born 🙂  And YES, I know food coloring is bad for us, 🙂

Now I have to tell you, as much I loved my second grade teacher, the recipe I am about to share with you is LIGHT YEARS better than a mix from a box. Do you like light fluffy pancakes with a delicate, crispy exterior? Then you are in for a treat.

My friend Darcy introduced me to the wonders of Alton Brown. We watched a couple of episodes of Good Eats online and Shane really liked his geeky science personality, 🙂 Well, Alton’s pancake recipe is what I am going to share with you here today. The batter is almost a chocolate mousse consistency, and it is really my go to recipe for pancakes. (His waffle recipe is to die for too!)

This recipe makes a triple batch of the dry ingredients, you can save the remainder in a canister for next time. Click on the link below to check it out.
