Spice up your pancake mix and syrup with cinnamon and vanilla. The family chef will have to keep 'em coming hot off the griddle as everyone clamors for more. Try the Flavor Variations as well.
Stir pancake mix and cinnamon in large bowl until well blended. Stir in eggs, milk, oil and vanilla just until blended.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto preheated lightly greased griddle or skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown, turning when pancakes begin to bubble. Serve pancakes with Spiced Syrup (recipe follows), if desired.
Spiced Syrup: Mix 1 cup pancake syrup, 1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract and 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie Spice in microwavable bowl or measuring cup. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until warm, stirring once.
Blueberry Pancakes: Prepare batter as directed, stirring in 1 cup blueberries.
Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Pancakes: Prepare batter as directed, stirring in 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips after adding vanilla and egg.
Pecan & Pumpkin Spice Pancakes: Prepare batter as directed, using McCormick® Pumpkin Pie Spice in place of the ground cinnamon and adding 1 cup chopped pecans.
