vanilla pancakes

In my opinion, breakfast is the best meal of the day. You get to eat a combination of sweet and savory together at one meal and it is completely accepted by the general public! Bacon, sausage, eggs and pancakes compete for your attention -- each equally delicious in different ways. I always save my pancakes for last. Melted butter and sweet syrup -- my mouth salivates just thinking about it!

In our family, pancakes tend to be a Saturday morning treat, but this vanilla pancake recipe is easily made the night before or made quickly on even the busiest of mornings. The addition of Beanilla Madagascar vanilla extract adds a sweet, vanilla note to a fluffy and light pancake that you will crave on any day of the week.
