I remember as a kid my mom made us Mickey Mouse pancakes, or pancakes with one big circle and two little circles on top for the ears. It made Saturdays feel special and fun. With the lack of family meals these days due to our rush-rush-rush lifestyles, a good pancake recipe can help bring the whole family together, if only on a Saturday morning. The cool thing about pancakes is that you can whip up a big batch once a week to reheat throughout the week. You can make each morning feel special even if you only have a few minutes to heat them up and inhale them before rushing out of the house. Without further ado, here are some mouthwatering pancake recipes that the whole family will surely devour!
