Our favorite pancake toppings:
-Cinnamon and Sugar. I love spreading a little butter on my pancakes, then sprinkling it with cinnamon and sugar. You can also spread a little frosting glaze over it as well.
-Fruit and Whipped Cream. This is a pancake classic. It is also super easy to add to any pancake dish.
-Nutella and Strawberries. Have you ever dipped a strawberry in Nutella? Well prepare to have your life changed. It is delicious, but add it to pancakes, and it becomes a dream come true.
-Strawberries, Bananas and Powdered Sugar. This is also a pancake classic, because it is simple, inexpensive, and tastes amazing. All you need is some syrup, and breakfast is served.
