The key to turning our beloved pancakes into tacos is starting with a simple pancake recipe that yields tender, yet foldable results – and that is exactly what I have for you below. This is my favourite weekend brunch recipe, the one I rely on for those rare weekend mornings when I’m feeling nest-y and home-y, in the mood for creating a beautiful and relaxing spread for my loved ones. Technically it’s a buttermilk pancake recipe, except it doesn’t require actual buttermilk because that’s not an ingredient that I keep readily available in my fridge, and I assume it’s the same for all of you… Hooray for no more buttermilk cartons wasting away in the back of our fridges! Instead, my recipe uses run-of-the-mill milk with a splash of white vinegar to create the acidity required to create fluffy, delicate pancakes. Use this recipe whenever you’re craving a sweet stack of goodness drizzled with maple syrup or get creative and turn them into pancakes as described below. When it comes to making pancake tacos it’s just a matter of 2 things: 1) source a taco holder from a kitchen supply store, online, or check out the many DIY options on the web; 2) create a topping bar filled with delicious things – no rules, just fill them how you like ‘em! I’ll share some great pancake taco filling ideas below.
