Yummy ... Make that Double Yummy ... Bread Pudding Pancakes

HMMMM...these bread pudding pancakes are so delicious. The pancakes are a bit heavier than regular pancakes but still with a soft, moist texture. And just look at the picture...yummmm.

I like the flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg in a bread pudding and had an OOPs moment with the cinnamon.

Instead of measuring the cinnamon ( a teaspoonful ) I decided to use the eyeball method & accidentally dumped in a huge mess of cinnamon! I was afraid that the amount of cinnamon may cause a bitterness but the flavors were just right. Whew.
 
I made these for dinner and there were no leftovers! ... and that's a good sign.

I found this recipe on one of my favorite foodie blogs here....dinnerwithjulie.com

Bread Pudding Pancake
dinnerwithjulie.com

3 thick slices of crusty bread or more of sandwich bread, torn into chunks
cinnamon (optional)
2 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
3 Tbsp. melted butter or canola oil
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
In a large bowl, toss bread chunks with cinnamon and pour milk and vanilla over top. Let stand, stirring once or twice, for about 15 minutes, until the bread has absorbed much of the milk.
In a small dish, stir together the eggs and butter or oil and stir into the bread mixture. Stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and add to the wet ingredients; stir just until combined.
Preheat a heavy skillet and spray with nonstick spray or drizzle with oil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Drop about 1/4 of batter at a time onto the skillet, spreading it out a little with a spatula if it’s too thick to do it itself. Cover with a lid and cook for a few minutes, until the bottom is golden and the pancake starts to look dry and bubbly around the edges. Flip, cover and cook until the other side is golden and the pancakes are cooked through. Serve warm, with sauteed bananas and/or maple syrup. Makes about 6 pancakes.
