To me, the BEST weekend treat, or slow Sunday morning start is homemade pancakes. Something about the sweet smell of cakes cooking on the stove, the maple syrup dripping all over the plate, and the endless topping choices. Ooh is it nostalgic! And boy oh boy are pancakes always delicious! When you use brown butter and walnuts that is…
These Walnut and Brown butter pancakes are the new key to my heart. They are fluffy, but not too fluffy. They are filled with nutty goodness. And are packed full of flavor from the brown butter. They are so easy to make (all in one bowl, that is!) and they come together in a half hour. A half hour on weekend time just frees up more of your morning to enjoy a second cup of coffee or a second plate of pancakes! Because who are we kidding, a second plate is a must.
Seriously, though, I am such a sucker for anything with brown butter or anything that just feels nostalgic. So with this recipe I tried to meld those two things together and the result was just better than I could have imagined! These pancakes are best enjoyed on the weekend with loved ones, with a cup of coffee, and topped with your favorite toppings. I can’t wait for you to try them!
Homemade Pancakes Recipe Notes:
- Brown your butter first in order to give it time to cool. It’s important to let your brown butter cool, so that when we add it in with the eggs, it won’t cook them. Weird, I know, but an important step if you don’t want accidental scrambled eggs!
- Do not over mix your batter. This goes for most pancake recipes anyways, but if you’ve ever had rubbery pancakes… you know they aren’t good. And most of the time that comes from over mixing! So try to just fold your flour and walnuts into the batter lights so we can make sure to retain that light and fluffy deliciousness.
