Chocolate Ombre Pancake Tower - deliciously & pretty!

One of my favorite things about Sundays are pancakes. I love the smell of pancakes on a Sunday morning. Well, actually I love the smell on any day. ;)

I've been using this recipes for years now and even though whipping up the egg whites is an additional step (and you end up with another dirty bowl - yikes!), it's definitely worth it. These pancakes are SO delicious!

The last time I made pancakes, I felt a little adventurous and made a chocolate ombre pancake tower. This little stack of pancakes is not only pretty to look at, it also tastes delicious. Topped with some powedered sugar, syrup and blueberries.. Yum!

Do you have a Sunday morning (or noon ;) ) breakfast tradition?

    Lecker. Bei uns ist Sonntags auch immer Pancake Tag oder Heute Mittag, weil das grosse Kind krank ist und sich was zu Essen wünschen durfte.

    OMG ! I should have made this for my boys on Pancake day (shrove Tuesday in the UK) a couple weeks ago! I suppose you can eat pancakes on other days of the year too so pinning it.
