Eggless Snickerdoodle Pancakes

Eggless Snickerdoodle Pancakes - excuse my bad photo
We love pancakes and therefore I make them all the time. But they have yet to appear on this blog. Why is that? Well, I take really bad pancake photos. I see foodgawker and tastespotting photographs of pancakes all the time. The photos are perfectly lit and the pancakes are perfectly shaped and stacked while a single stream of unidentified syrup drizzles down overtop of them from an unknown source. Those pictures are great, cook book quality even but they are totally unrealistic in my opinion.

I make pancakes a lot and I think they are pretty good. But they never all leave my skillet perfectly shaped, I rarely top them with syrup - lemon juice is my fav, I never eat 6 of them in one sitting - all perfectly stacked like that, and I'm always super hungry therefore lighting and composition are the least of my worries at 8 am in the morning. Because of this I take bad pancake photos and bad crepe photos for that matter too. 

I hope you don't mind. 

Cause this recipe is delicious. Don't let my bad photo deceive you ;-)
