Caramel Pecan Pancakes

Have a sweet spot for sticky buns?  But love pancakes?
Well, I combined the two!

I hope you all had a long, fun-filled Memorial Day weekend!  Ours was super chill and honestly very relaxing.  We had the opportunity to travel with some family to a cabin on a lake, but opted out of the close to 10 hour drive and just stayed home.  Although it would have been wonderful to see family, it was also wonderful to just stay put.

Our weekend wasn't completely at home, as we did travel to a graduation party and a friend's barbecue last night, but for the most part we enjoyed the nice weather and took a chill pill.

The husband and I did spend 2+ HOURS putting together this patio set.  You can see it on our deck here.  But in the end all the cussing and fretting was worth it.  I love it!  We enjoyed our first summer meal on it Sunday night consisting of grilled hamburgers, deviled eggs and Caesar Salad....plus rhubarb crisp for dessert.

Not too shabby of a weekend.

Alright, let's chat PANCAKES.

If I were on death row and was given a "last breakfast" quote on quote, it would be pancakes. If the guards were really nice {which I'm guessing they wouldn't be considering this is death row}, it'd also ask for a side of crispy bacon.

As nothing is better than dipping that salty, crispy bacon in a bit of maple syrup that has run off the side of the pancake.

Now, I've made every kind of pancake imaginable.  Oh, so many.  My kids often say my pancakes taste different every time I make them as I cannot leave well enough alone.

So without even a flutter of an eyeball they weren't surprised when I whipped up this Caramel Pecan version.  Just another day at their house really.

I had a bag of the Kraft Caramel Bits {really, I need to keep these on hand for EVERYTHING} and another bag of chopped pecans.  Duh.  The idea was immediate.  We love caramel pecan rolls or sticky buns, so wouldn't we love those ingredients in a pancake?

My stand by homemade pancake batter quickly turned into one of the best pancake combinations I've ever made.  Go ahead and save this recipe for yourself.  It is pretty much my go to batter recipe.  We love them plain and and we love them doctored up.

But...of course add these caramel bits and chopped pecans.  Don't be stingey!  Load that pancake up. The crunch and salt of the pecans and the ooey, gooey sweet caramel take these pancakes to another level.  You won't be disappointed!

2 eggs
2 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. sugar
1 T. vanilla extract
2 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 c. flour
1 c. chopped pecans

1.  In a bowl combine the wet ingredients; eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla.  Whisk to combine.

3.  Heat a large griddle or skillet over medium heat.  Spray with cooking spray.  Ladel on pancake batter in 4-5 inch rounds.  Top the pancake with chopped pecans and caramel bits.  When the pancake starts to bubble, gently flip and continue cooking another minute on the other side.
