M&M Pancakes!

Happy late December everyone,

We have been cooking up a storm lately and hopefully I will be posting a bunch of recipes in the next few days. I love making a bit of a fancier breakfast on the weekends and often make eggs for the grown-ups. My kids don’t like eggs very much so they are always asking for something else. This is their newest favorite pancake recipe – and not because of the M&Ms! It is sweet and fluffy and can stand alone, with just a pat of butter. Maple syrup really takes it over the top. Usually we add blueberries or chocolate chips but they asked for a special M&M treat this time and I obliged. Honestly, I was hoping the M&Ms would convince the baby to eat them – because for some reason, she DOES NOT LIKE pancakes. She just ended up picking the M&Ms out, though (sigh). Try them and let me know what you think!

M&M Pancakes



1 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 pinches salt

1/4 cup sugar


2/3 cup milk

1 egg

2 tablespoons butter (melted) plus more for cooking

1/2-1 tsp vanilla

mix-ins: blueberries, chocolate chips, M&Ms



  1. Add the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix – do not overmix, it makes them less fluffy.
  4. You can let the batter sit for 30 min, it will make them fluffier. We often skip this step because we are hungry!
  5. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  6. Ladle the batter into a frying pan and put the add-ins on top.
  7. When you see small bubbles forming, flip them over.
  8. Cook the other side for about 2 minutes until golden.
  9. Enjoy!
