Hey everyone, I’m so excited to celebrate Blake’s first father’s day next weekend. We’ll also be celebrating with my dad and stepdad too, but I plan to make the morning extra special for B since he’s a new dad. So I researched some fun breakfast ideas and since he loves sweets, I thought it would be fun to make him a custom pancake board for us to pick at all morning while we drink coffee and lounge around the house before heading out to our father’s day festivities. I came across the idea on Pinterest and recreated the board with all of our favorite pancake toppings. Much like a cheese board, you can customize the board to have to all of your favorite pancake ingredients like chocolate chips, bananas and peanut butter. I also made sure to include plenty of other fruit options too as well as bacon.
Scroll through this post to see the special guest who joined me on my recent episode of #HauteOutTheOven and to see how our pancake board turned out. Also, in case you didn’t know, #HauteOutTheOven is the name of my mini cooking & baking show on my Instagram stories!
