Fluffy Canadian Pancakes

It’s Sunday morning again.  Pancake time.  I am crazy every time I ask Grumpy what he wants for breakfast on a weekend because the answer is always “cakes”.  These are pancakes I made last weekend.  I happened to see the recipe on allrecipes.com as their recipe of the day and decided why not?

I am not sure why these are Canadian….seems pretty universal to me but anyway, my mom makes a recipe similar to this.  I should have known better than to think that just because I was using a recipe with a different name that I could make them turn out as yummy as hers.  This is why I don’t try to make certain recipes of hers very often.  Because hers are better than mine.  I make the Fluffy Pancake recipe much better than this one.  Oh, it was good, but not my mom’s!  Grumpy still ate them but when I make pancakes this weekend I will be back to my favorite Fluffy Pancake one (or maybe I’ll try Rachelle’s favorite one!)

These pancakes were topped with fresh homemade strawberry rhubarb jam.  I made the Berry Rhubarb Jam recipe but subbed strawberries instead of Raspberries.  Yummy.

    Oooh I love strawberry rhubarb anything! Sounds great for a pancake topping! (I made some this morning with sausage crumbles in them)

    These would be great topped with my homemade strawberry freezer jam. Such a nice change from maple syrup, yes?

    The pancakes with strawberry jam look delicious!! I like the top pancakes with fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of sugar.

    Those look pretty darn delicious to me!!! I know what you mean, though — my mom's always a great cook, but there are a few things that are so delicious, it's magical. I can make the same recipe, but it doesn't taste as good as hers!

    I love jam on pancakes and haven't done that in so long. Yours look so good!

    I don't know why these would be considered Canadian, either. Love the strawberry rhubarb jam on top.
