Pancakes for your Baby Cake

Pancakes for your Baby Cake!
Does your family like pancakes as much as mine does?
Here are a few ways to make your pancakes a healthier treat!
  • Top your cakes with fresh or frozen fruits! Try strawberries, blueberries, peaches, apples and bananas!
  • Add a dollop of low fat yogurt!
  • When making your pancakes use applesauce instead of oil!
  • Try low calorie cooking spray instead of butter or oil!
  • Use cookie cutter to make fun shapes and characters.
  • Add fruit to the batter like, mashed bananas or pumpkin puree!
  • Try to find 100% maple syrup, light sugar syrup or honey as a sweet topping!
  • I love to add a dash of vanilla or cinnamon for a special touch!
  • Look for maple extract or almond extract to make your cakes ones to remember!
Pancakes are not just a breakfast food. Surprise your family with pancakes for dinner or lunch any day of the week!


  1. I have a friend who puts shredded carrots, zucchini or spinach in them and they come out great! (think carrot cake or zucchini bread - it works!).

  2. This sounds great! Thanks Alysia, I will have to try!
