When I was a kid I LOVED root beer, the soda's, the floats, the root beer barrell candies, the
salt water taffy, the popsicles....all of it! NOW being a grown up, the love for root beer still exists...so the thought of "ROOT BEER PANCAKES" was a dream come true because NOW we can serve
root beer for breakfast and its OKAY!!! My daughter bit into these fabulous pancakes and said
she felt like she was eating a root beer float...from a malt shop! They are the perfect new recipe
to shake up your breakfast menu!
