Well, we've made it 9 days into these giveaways and it's about time we have a hearty breakfast.  You know, to get us through the next 3 days.

I have forever been a breakfast fan.  I can eat it anytime of the day.  If someone invites me out for breakfast and coffee, or better yet BRUNCH, I'll pretty much be your friend for life.  There is just something about big, fluffy pancakes, eggs, crispy bacon, spicy sausages, hashbrowns, pretty pastries and fruit all loaded up onto one plate.

Because, let's be honest, we'd never make all of that delciousness at home for ourselves.

Of all breakfast items pancakes are probably my favorite.  I'll eat them any and every way, I never judge.  Some of my favorites that I've featured over the years include my Lemon Ricotta Blueberry Pancakes, this Caramel Pecan version, this silly upside-down apple bacon pancake and the ones where I mix yogurt and oatmeal into the batter.

This Fall I got onto a kick of pumpkin pancakes and these wildly popular Apple Cider flapjacksSee?  I'm a tad obsessed.

I desparately wanted to incorporate pancakes somewhere, somehow into my holiday series, so when I reached out to Kodiak Cakes they happily agreed to jump on board.  Although Kodiak Cakes launched in 1995, it's origins date back decades before when a Utah mom sold her locally famous dry pancake mix out of paper bags to her friends and neighbors.

Today, Kodiak Cakes are found at Target and nationwide at these other retail outlets.  I find them everywhere around me and I'm in Iowa {we typically get most things last}!

Do you ever want pancakes, but don't feel like standing at the kitchen counter to hover over a skillet for the next 20 minutes flipping and serving?  At least, that is what happens in my house.  This mom usually eats last after everyone else is served.

That is why I wanted to create a PANCAKE CASSEROLE I know, genius right?  It has all the flavor, taste and consistency of a pancake, but it is baked all at once and allows the family to sit down together.

I stuffed this one with raspberries, some lemon zest and tangy buttermilk, then topped it with a crumbly brown sugar topping right before baking.  We ate it warm dusted with powdered sugar and drizzled with maple syrup.

TWO lucky blog readers are going to win a 4-pack of Kodiak Cakes Pancake MixesU.S. residents only.  Enter via the giveaway icon below for multiple chances to win.  Two random winners will be chosen on December 12th.
