Breakfast Yum: Bird's Nest Pancakes

This is my all time favorite pancake recipe!!!! It’s just the best for so many reasons, first being that this is a HUGE pancake the size of a dinner plate. If there is anything better than pancakes, it’s giant pancakes. Plus, I always run into the same problem when making stack-able pancakes. Half of the batch are already cold by the time I’m done flipping the rest. Boo. Another reason to love this pancake recipe is the golden treasure in the middle: A sunny egg. Just add warm maple butter syrup, cut into the pancake, break the yolk, dip, and devour.

Dry Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt

Liquid Ingredients:
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup oil or melted butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

  1. In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients. 
  2. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and mix to combine. 
  3. Heat a medium size skillet over low-med heat. Use a small amount of oil (I use coconut) or butter to grease skillet.  
  4. Spoon your batter into the skillet in the shape of a donut, leaving the middle of the skillet visible (this will serve as the “nest” for your egg). 
  5. Crack an egg directly into the little “nest” you made with your batter. Cook your pancake until the face up side starts to bubble. 
  6. Now for the tricky part…. flip the pancake (I used a dinner plate to assist in the flip) and cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes. 

Maple Butter Syrup:
Super easy. Just melt desired amount of butter and maple syrup together! :]

Enjoy this fun variation on America’s favorite breakfast!
