National Pancake Day! (and a trip down Memory Lane…)

by Paula on September 26, 2012


Who knew there were so many delicious holidays to celebrate?  Not me, that’s for sure.  But I promise you, I am willing to try to cram in all the yummy celebrations I can every day of the year!  Want to celebrate with me?  Of course you do!

Today, September 26 is National Pancake Day and Johnny Appleseed Day (and just so you’re prepared, Friday, September 28, is National Good Neighbor Day).  And just because I am that kind of good neighbor, if you lived next door, I’d observe today’s celebrations by making some awesome apple pancakes and inviting you over to watch me eat them share.

I might make some of these apple-y delights:


Apple-Walnut Pancakes…



Apple Cider Pancakes…



Apple Banana Pancakes…



And possibly we’d end the meal with Apple Pie Pancakes…



But that’s not all of the pancake-y goodness!

We might branch out to enjoy…

Red Velvet Pancakes…



Or even a Chocolate Pancake Cake…

And because we (we-meaning-Ariel-not-we-meaning-me) are artistic like this, we might even try to show you how talented we are with some Pancake Art!

Imagine us starting off the day with Good Morning Hearts…



or a cute Owl Pancake…



Mr. Pancake Head…



Rainbow Pancakes…

or we might try channeling Dr. Seuss…



And we’d have to celebrate one of Ariel’s favorite authors, Roald Dahl, and one of her favorite heroines of his books, Matilda….


And because I’m such a good neighbor, after I’d fed you tons of yummy pancakes, I’d pull out my rusty dusty slide projector to show you some old-old-old slides of a childhood trip to Solvang, California, a darling Danish settlement with picturesque architecture and delightful shops and restaurants. And you’d obliging watch, but throughout the show you’d be thinking about how you could get more pancakes, and then, all of a sudden, you’d spy a slide of…


And then you’d know that all along I’d been planning this wonderful trip for you, just for you, so you could sample some traditional Danish pancakes!.



And after you’d drooled over the slide of the æbleskiver, I’d pull out the special æbleskiver pan I’d just ordered and we’d mix up a batch to share with the whole neighborhood.

Because we’re good neighbors like that.

Those are some seriously cool pancakes. I love the rainbow and the red velvet!

I, too, went to Solvang years ago and LOVED the apple skeivers(?). Wish I could make them for my granddaughter. Maybe one day.
