the holiday baking frenzy has begun, and this pancake bread is everything you love about breakfast in a fast and easy loaf perfect for holiday guests
When it comes to breakfast recipes, it just doesn’t get better than this pancake bread. I love my pancakes, and I love my bread. This breakfast loaf is the best of both. Quite simply it is a pancake in loaf form making it fast and easy, and the perfect way to feed your hungry holiday guests.
Thanksgiving is behind us, and Christmas is fast approaching. This means the holiday baking season is finally here. My cookie list is growing longer by the day, and this is the year I finally make a buche de noel. But my favorite baking has to be breakfast. I would much rather entertain for breakfast or brunch than dinner any day.
Pancakes are one of our favorite breakfasts, but even with a large griddle they take a long time when feeding a crowd. Plus, who wants to be stuck in the kitchen when friends and family are visiting, Not me that’s for sure. I’ve been making this pancake casserole for the last few years at holiday time. We all love it, but I was really looking for something even easier.
I made a few minor adjustments to my favorite pancake batter, baked the batter in a loaf pan, and I got a delicious breakfast bread perfect for feeding a crowd. Sprinkle the loaf with a bit of powdered sugar and cinnamon, spread it with butter, pour on some maple syrup, or use all of the above. This pancake bread is a fun twist on a family favorite breakfast treat.
