Today there were 7 children in my care. The oldest was 14 and the youngest was 1. The 14 year old doesn't need a lot of supervision, so I put him to work making pancakes for lunch. I mixed up the batter (recipe x6) and then he filled the orders.

We made all kinds of pancakes. Plain, blueberry, chocolate chip, chocolate chip and blueberry, and chocolate/vanilla swirl.

We also made:

Salted caramel: Chocolate pancake with whipped cream, caramel syrup, and sea salt sprinkled on top.

Smore: Pancake with chocolate chips, graham cracker pieces, and micro marshmallows. These were really rich and yummy. I had whipped cream on mine. Unfortunately, the marshmallows and graham crackers blended into the pancake. May try graham flour next time or wait to add the graham cracker pieces and marshmallows until one side has cooked instead of just adding them to the batter.

Two that I wanted to try, but forgot...

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Chocolate pancake with strawberries and chocolate chips.

Pancake with coconut and chocolate chips and caramel syrup.

Do you have any unique pancake recipes or favorite toppings for pancakes or waffles?

I tink the choc covered straw wouldn't be yummy.
