It's National Pancake Day, which means it's time to talk seriously about what it is you're making for breakfast. If you ask me, whipping up a plate full of pancakes is probably the best way to start off your morning. This hasn’t been scientifically proven or anything, but I’m like almost positive that it’s a fool-proof method. Who can resist a bunch of flattened cakes covered in butter and syrup? No one. No one can resist this.

Pancakes take a few minutes to make, so it’s understandable if you’re more of a I’ll-Just-Grab-A-Yogurt-So-I’m-Not-Late-To-Work-Thanks person. I am one of those, for the most part. But on Sundays? I like to take time with breakfast. I’ll use up all the fruit I bought at the farmers market and never ate because I’m terrible. I’ll find a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips I had been meaning to use for cookies. I will find all the bacon I have and I will bake it, because pancakes are even better with a plate of smoky, applewood bacon on the side.

Besides, it’s a holiday dedicated entirely to pancakes! So, get those mixing bowls out, get yourself some fancy maple syrup from Whole Foods, turn the oven on, and get ready for an amazing morning filled with pancakes and joy. I’ve found some of the yummiest, coolest recipes the Internet has to offer. So get hungry.
