Breakfast and Brunch Ideas

Breakfast and Brunch are an important time of the day. And sometimes, carbs are a great way to fuel up and indulge a little. Pancakes, waffles, and French Toast are the perfect way to start celebrating a special day. 

For Father's Day I made Buttermilk Pancakes with chocolate sprinkles. This is my dad's pancake recipe, so I thought it would be special to whip these up. The recipe is from Betty Crocker. These were the pancakes he always made when I was growing up. He'd even make them when we went camping. And he loves making them for my boys when we visit him in Montana. 

Buttermilk Pancakes


1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
2 T. oil
1 T sugar
1 cup flour  
1 t. baking powder 
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt


Beat egg; add buttermilk and oil. Add dry ingredients. Beat until smooth. Spoon batter onto a hot griddle. Turn pancakes as soon as they are puffed and full of bubbles. Bake other side until golden brown. 

I added chocolate sprinkles to my batter before I cooked them. Then I added some powdered sugar, butter, and syrup! 

 Another great way to eat pancakes are Funfetti Pancakes! At the store I came across a box of Funfetti Pancake mix from Pillsbury. These were some fun and colorful pancakes we had last month.

Homemade waffles are fun to make using a waffle maker if you have one. I also like to make sauces for my waffle toppings. Here you'll find the recipe I used for a strawberry sauce from Sally's Baking Addiction. I just used the waffle recipe that came with my waffle maker. You can find waffle recipes online easily.

Here are a couple more yummy breakfast and brunch recipes. My Fruity Pebbles French Toast blog can be found here

These mini pancakes were cute and so delicious! You can find that post here

Hopefully these breakfast ideas inspire and give you some fun ideas for special summer breakfasts and brunches!
