Carrot Cake Pancakes

If you love carrot cake....you will LOVE these pancakes. Carrot Cake is probably the only cake in the world that I just LOVE, so this was a "must try" for me. I was a little nervous at first...putting carrots in my pancakes, but WOW...the results were amazing...I LOVED these pancakes. The family thought they were great...although I have one (whom will remain nameless) that just likes things plain and missed their "ordinary pancakes" the morning that I made these, but "he" said that he still liked these. It's a nice break from the "hum drum" pancakes that you make every time you pull out the pancake mix, it doesn't take much longer to whip them out and they taste 100% better...so try some today.

Carrot Cake Pancakes
(it's almost like having dessert for breakfast)

2 1/4 c. buttermilk pancake mix (I use Krustez)
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. milk
1 c. finely shredded carrots
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. ground nutmeg
1/4 t. ground cloves

1 can of Cream cheese frosting (optional)

In a large bowl, put the pancake mixes, sugar and spices. Then add the other remaining ingredients (not frosting) and mix well. 

Heat a griddle or large frying pan to a hot temperature, and coat generously with cooking spray. 

Pour batter from a cup onto hot griddle to make pancakes the size that you want them. Cook until pancake bubbles and then flip to the other side and cook until golden brown. 

Serve with Cream cheese frosting OR your favorite butter and syrup. 

*The pancake mix that I use is one that you just add water to, but if your mix calls for oil and eggs, just add those as well...whatever your package directions instruct...and then add the rest of the ingredient for the carrot cake pancakes.  
*I found that the batter was a little "THICK" for my liking, so I just added a little more milk.

Happy Cooking~
