Last year on this post, I told you all about our family favorite Root Beer Pancakes! Well, pull out those griddles, because I have another amazing pancake recipe that your kids will love!
On another blog, (I think it was livelovesugar.com but now I can't find it), I saw a recipe for Cherry Coke Cupcakes. That got me thinking about root beer, because I love it and I wondered if I could make root beer cupcakes. (That will be for another day!) Then, I thought about Root Beer Pancakes and I wondered about Cherry 7-Up Pancakes because they would look so nice and pink. The cupcakes had added maraschino cherry juice in them and I thought the cherry juice added to the pancake batter would make the pancakes even pinker! Well, of course I had to give it a try. (Now you see how my mind works!)
These pancakes have a subtly sweet flavor and delicate texture. I didn't have any cherry syrup to top them with so we just used our regular maple. It was really good, but I think a cherry syrup would be extra good! For the 4th of July, you could give these pancakes a patriotic twist! We added blueberries and whipped cream to make them red, white and blue!
This is a quick and easy breakfast to make for you family this summer! I hope you give it a try. Just click the button above to print off your recipe! You will love it!
