Celebrate special occasions or the weekend with these Homemade Pancake Toppings! Caramel Sauce and Whipped Cream are so easy to make and taste so good on top of your favorite pancakes.
It’s my birthday today! What better way to celebrate than with a couple recipes for my favorite meal of the day: breakfast!
I am one of those people who eats breakfast every single day. I just can’t start my day without it! And whenever Andrew and I get a day off together, we love to make a special breakfast or go out to one of our favorite places.
Homemade Pancake Topping Idea: Caramel Sauce
First, I made a homemade caramel sauce based on the sauce I use in my Caramel Dutch Apple Pie. This sauce is so simple to make, you won’t want to go back to store bought! You can keep any extra in the refrigerator and reheat it in the microwave. We’ve used it as an ice cream topping as well and it’s delicious!
Homemade Pancake Topping Idea: Whipped Cream
I had bought a pint of heavy whipping cream for my Strawberry Chocolate Ganache Layer Cake that appeared on the blog last week.
Lately I’ve been on this kick where I try to use up everything I buy before it goes bad, so I had to find a use for the extra heavy whipping cream. Making my own whipped cream was the perfect solution!
We love whipped cream on pancakes, and making it from scratch is so simple and delicious!
What Pancakes to Make with these Toppings?
Our favorite pancake mixes are from Trader Joe’s. We finished up the last of a pumpkin mix we had bought last Fall. It’s definitely the best one, and I’ll be stocking up on them next Fall!
