The Breakfast That Almost Wasn’t

Breakfast is my favorite. Pancakes make breakfast. Without pancakes, breakfast wouldn’t exist without pancakes.

Although I do enjoy a good waffle or some french toast.


When I wanted breakfast last week, I wanted pancakes. I wanted butter. Gosh darn it I wanted syrup!


I also was being quite lazy.

I whipped out the Bisquick and eggs and whatnot and I whisked myself up some pancakes. And then I saw it. I spied out of the corner of my little eye something that said orange extract. I grabbed my poppy seeds and I grabbed the orange extract and I poured both into my pancake batter. Three pours and flips later and I had myself a fine looking stack of pancakes. Syrup topped off my lovely concoction. “Wait a second! (I said to myself) What compliments orange? Chocolate!” So a sprinkle of cocoa was all it took.

I had an awesome breakfast.


The only thing is.. I forgot to take a picture of its awesomeness before I started eating.



  1. I love breakfast! Pancakes are the best thing ever :)

  2. Wow your Bisquick pancakes could fool anyone that they were from scratch. I love pancakes too and have a recipe from a southern family cookbook that is so amazing. Let me know if you would like it. Just as easy and way better. he he Wow, sounds like dessert not breakfast. :-)

  3. I'm so not a pancake girl, but your pictures are tempting. Have you ever tried Aunt Jemima whole wheat pancake batter? It's actually not bad either!

  4. This looks delicious! It is not a problem if you started to eat your pancakes before to take the pics :)
