One thing I love about pancakes is how malleable they are – you can make funny shapes with the batter, you can change the color, and you can add whatever you want into the mix. Pancakes are a blank food canvas waiting for your inspiration. Sure, these next-level pancakes really make you question if they are meant for dessert instead of breakfast (how about both?), but that's why they are so much fun to eat.
