Our 10 Favourite Sweet Pancake Recipes

You just can't beat a stack of pancakes for breakfast. Whether you're in the mood for simple crepes, a pillowy Dutch baby or a stack of American-style pancakes studded with blueberries, we've got a recipe for every pancake craving on this list.

Lemon and Sugar Crepes The Happy Foodie

Lemon and Sugar Crepes from The Cooking Book

The classic. Of course we had to include this in our list of favourites. Nobody can refuse a stack of crepes drenched in freshly squeezed lemon juice and sprinkled in caster sugar. We think it might actually be impossible.

Blueberry Pancakes with Mango Cashew Cream The Happy Foodie

Blueberry Pancakes with Mango Cashew Cream from Good + Simple

These pillowy little pancakes look just irresistible, especially as they’re bursting with soft, juicy blueberries. Serve with the Mango Cashew Cream and this recipe will become a weekend staple.

Blender Banana Pancakes The Happy Foodie

Blender Banana Pancakes from Everyday Detox

Want an excuse to eat pancakes for breakfast every day? We’ve got it covered. This recipe is not only time-friendly, but these pancakes are also packed with protein and healthy fats. If that’s not a reason to swap out your cereal, we don’t know what is!

Gluten Free American Pancakes The Happy Foodie

Gluten-Free American Pancakes from Genius Gluten-free Cookbook

Luckily gluten-free doesn’t mean pancake-free! This recipe means the whole family can enjoy pancakes without compromising on taste! Now pass the maple syrup – we have a feeling it’s going to be gone in a matter of minutes.

Silver-Dollar Pancakes The Happy Foodie

Silver-Dollar Pancakes from A Year in 120 Recipes

These pancakes get their name from their size, 5-7 cm similar to 1979 silver dollar coins released in the United States. But who cares about the name of the recipe when it looks (and tastes!) so utterly delicious. These thick little pancakes can be served with melon and yoghurt or spiced apples. But we agree with Jack, who serves them with the best pancake topping in our opinion, maple syrup and bacon.
