This carrot pancakes recipe is a delicious (and simple) Easter breakfast option. Enjoy them with traditional maple syrup or topped with cream cheese glaze. Nom. Nom. Nom.
Easter may be the one time of year where your kids are keen on the thought of putting veggies in pancakes. Call them Easter Bunny Cakes and I guarantee they'll be amused.
The best part of this carrot pancakes recipe is it can be made in less than 5-minutes if you have a Pancake Starter Mix on hand (via All She Eats). The Pancake Starter Mix recipe below can be used to make carrot pancakes, hearty pumpkin pancakes, applesauce pancakes, banana pancakes, or even banana chocolate chip pancakes.
- 1 cup non-bleached flour
- 2 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 ½ teaspoon of baking powder
- ½ teaspoon of salt
Combine all the ingredients and store in a dry place. For a make-ahead breakfast option, measure out single-recipe portions of the dry ingredients into several mason jars or Ziplock bags for future use!
Having this pre-made Pancake Starter Mix makes it easy to throw together a home cooked meal on a busy morning (or night -- if you love breakfast for dinner as much as I do!). Coming together for meals as a family is important to us ... wether it be breakfast or dinner. Sometimes it is still challenging to do. I love the idea of intentionally prepping bags of the Pancake Starter Mix for future meals together.
