Coffee Maple Pancakes is  my  recipe of the day with the blogging group Sunday Funday. We join hands weekly to post fabulous recipes on differing topics.

This week we are sharing recipes with  coffee.

Coffee Maple Pancakes

I have been hungry  for breakfast recipes lately. Especially pancakes. But being tired of the same-old buttermilk   or blueberry or chocolate chip, I thought coffee might  make an interesting variation. And having some instant espresso in the  cabinet made things easy.

The  coffee flavor is lovely with  the  maple  and vanilla. I do use extracts in these because they work  for potent flavor to stand up against the espresso powder. The amount of sugar is higher than other pancake batters because it needs to counter the coffee flavor and balance  that.

These  are  perfect for me,  especially with more maple syrup on top and a cup of coffee to go with. Obviously, I won’t be functioning without  that. Ha!

Enjoy  your Sunday  breakfast-  make it a lazy one and be sure to get out and enjoy the signs of autumn  leaves. Not much here yet but we keep looking!
