Look! On that plate! It's French toast! It's a pancake! No! It's French toast pancakes! A family favorite as we can never decide on French toast or pancakes. Great for holiday breakfasts to keep the kids from snitching.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a griddle or skillet over medium-high heat.

    Advertisement
  • Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon together in a bowl; make a well in the center. Beat milk, egg, 2 tablespoons oil, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl; pour into the well in the flour mixture and stir until batter is smooth.

  • Drop about 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Note:

These will turn out darker than normal pancakes because of the ingredients for the French toast flavor. They need a slightly more careful eye.

This is a great recipe. I double the recipe so that I could have some to pop into a toaster. Only change was use 2/4 cup of 35% milk and 1 1/14 cup 2% milk as I did not have enough 2% in the house. Worked great will be making again. Read More

This didn't do it for us. The spices were a cute twist but the very low sugar content made the pancaked almost savory. They also came out very flat although the texture was nice. Not bad but not particularly good either. Read More

Nice little recipe - and since I'm a fan of both pancakes and french toast I had to give this a try. And while I did up the amount of vanilla cinnamon and nutmeg overall these turned out really good. This is definitely a nice twist on two classic breakfast dishes. Great topped with butter and real maple syrup and served with some OJ and fresh fruit. Read More

I doubled the recipe which yielded 14 pancakes with my #50 scoop. I omitted the salt and used melted butter for the oil in the batter I used a non stick griddle so I just lightly sprayed with Pam. My kids enjoyed these but I found the aftertaste a bit odd can\t put my finger on what it is. Read More

This is my fav pancake recipe so far. The test is Devine and texture is on point. If you remove the "French Toast" spices you have a nice pancake. It's now the only recipe I follow. With or without the spices. Two thumbs up!!???????? Read More

I've been looking for this for YEARS when I was a child a pancake house had these and never could find it again. I tweaked a little I used 1 tablespoon of baking soda for fluffier pancakes doubled cinnamon and added a few splashes of vanilla extract. when I wanted them thinner again I added 2 tablespoons of cold water and cooked on a medium-low heat so they didn't look burnt.

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical as I read this recipe as to how it would taste like french toast with a "dash' of cinnamon and vanilla. While it's a bit of a stretch there were definitely bites reminiscent of french toast (though I did add a health "dash" of both cinnamon and vanilla and skipped the nutmeg). They had a nice cinnamon-y taste. This made 2 large pancakes and 2 medium sized pancakes. For my second pancake I added some chocolate chips as I'm a big cinnamon/chocolate fan. That was nice too. THANKS for the recipe! Read More
