Barefoot Bloggers Pancakes

by jerseygirl on January 8, 2009 · 40 comments

This month, Karen from Something Sweet By Karen chose Banana Sour Cream Pancakes for our Barefoot Bloggers recipe. I made these last weekend and the kids loved having a lazy Sunday morning breakfast. Since I only had frozen bananas that had turned brown, I chose to keep them out of the recipe. Banana pancakes without bananas, go figure.

Instead I added vanilla chips to the kids pancakes. I added cinnamon chips and pecans to the adult portions. The chips and nuts made them delicious. These were thick, fluffy, moist pancakes and everyone loved them. They didn’t even need syrup. Thanks Karen for picking this!

If you would like to see more of what the Barefoot Bloggers is all about, click here. It is a fun group that cooks twice a month and tests Ina Garten’s recipes.

Come back soon as I will be featuring some really fun giveaways in the next week.

Pecan Cinnamon Pancakes (adapted from Ina Garten’s recipe)
1 1/2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk
2 extra-large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped
1/2 cup cinnamon chips
butter
Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sour cream, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, mixing only until combined. Stir in the pecans and cinnamon chips. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat until it bubbles. Ladle the pancake batter into the pan to make 3 or 4 pancakes. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until bubbles appear on top and the underside is nicely browned. Flip the pancakes and then cook for another minute until browned. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel, add more butter to the pan, and continue cooking pancakes until all the batter is used. Serve with more pecans and maple syrup

Your pancakes look wonderful, especially for a lazy sunday morning.

I’ve looked but unable to find those illusive cinnamon chips… keeping my eye’s out for them 😉

I think your version sounds scrumptious. Who needs bananas when you have cinnamon chips?

Your banana pancakes without bananas turned out great, lol! I bet they were as delicious or even more with the cinnamon chips and peacans!

I love making pancakes for the family and am always looking for better recipes. Yours look scrumptious! I can’t get cinnamon chips in France, but I could replace them with a bit of ground cinnamon for the flavor. What a wonderful idea and so much tastier than the plains ones I usually make!

I could easily wake up to these, especially with the pecans on them. I love putting pecans on my waffles, so this would be perfect.

Cynthia January 11, 2009 at 2:11 am

Would I be bad if I pick off all the nuts and eat them and leave my pancakes behind? 🙂

Tanya January 11, 2009 at 9:08 am

I never think of adding cinnamon. Now I have to try that. Sounds delicious!

Last time I had banana/pecan pancakes was at Sambo’s in Santa Barbara, California and they were wonderful. I know it is the original one anywhere and last one left in America. Any way, next time try them with bananas although these must have been great.

OMG – these pancakes were to die for. The whole family inhaled them and then looked at the empty plate and wanted more. I had to make a few adjustments – added cinnamon spice because I didn’t have any chips and put nuts in only a few – picky kids. Anyway there were a huge hit and will be made again and again and again!
