Cherry Pie Pancakes will make your weekend breakfast amazing. Cherry pie filling supreme!
For me, nothing sets the tone for a relaxing day like a good stack of pancakes. In our house we do pancakes on Sunday mornings pretty often, so even when I whip up a quick batch with my homemade fluffy pancake mix on a school day, pancakes trick my brain into thinking this just might be a long leisurely day of book reading, dog walking, and afternoon coffee drinking (even though most of my Sundays are filled with yard work, laundry, and grocery shopping).
My kiddos are all about a stack of pancakes, but sometimes they are skeptical of the goodies I stuff inside. One is confused about the world and thinks he doesn’t like blueberries. The other would rather I left off the pecans. But neither one of my guys argued with me about cherry pie pancakes.
Let's talk about this for a second - cherry pie filling, in pancakes. What took me so long to think of it?! You can use pretty much any pie filling you'd like. I bet homemade apple pie filling would be fantastic. These are "Let's celebrate Sunday" kinda pancakes. We all need a recipe like that in our repertoire. Trust me.
These pancakes are so super fluffy and have a delicious hint of almond. The cherry pie filling folded into the batter is a super simple way to dress up an already delicious recipe fast! I love excuses to add dessert to my breakfast, don't you? Every bite is full of cherry pie bliss, guys.
I topped mine with whipped cream and more pie filling, because duh, pie. You can absolutely slather these in syrup too, if you'd like.
