February 9th, 2016 is Pancake Tuesday. Alright, perhaps to some it is called Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday, but for all intents and purposes…
I will refer to it today as Pancake Tuesday.
…but what about those delectable Polish Pączki doughnut blessings from the Gods that are so yummy and a staple here in Chicago?
Well, this year I may break my Chicago tradition and not make it over to Dinkel’s Bakery in Lakeview to pick up my dozen-or-so stuffed doughnuts. (But it’s sooooo tempting). I follow the guys from SortedFood and sometimes they come up with the greatest dishes that you just have to try.
So what did I make?
Cinnamon-Swirl Pancakes was on this morning’s menu. As you know, Sunday morning breakfast is a thing in our house and what better way to bring in the morning than some loaded pancakes?
All I can truly say is, you have to try this out!
I followed their recipe for the cinnamon swirl drizzle, but the pancake recipe, I ended up using my go-to pancake recipe saved on my phone from AllRecipes because I did not have the mentioned cake flour in SortedFood’s recipe.
Make sure you have this on Pancake Tuesday. Breakfast for dinner is an absolute treat of a meal, anyway… so why the hell not?
I mean, it is not going to beat a bowl of Frosted Flakes at 9pm, but it will be damn close. Let me know what you guys thing in the comments section below.
