It's Halloween! Which means that the leaves are all sorts of pretty, the kids are giddy and there is just a general sense of happy in the air. What better way to bring a smile to your family's face than with a little Pancakes for Dinner fun. And now that you're well versed in the Best Pancakes Ever, it's a no brainer. Okay. I see your point. Sugar + Sugar + Kids = Scary. So save these Praline Pancakes for a rainy day when Fall feels just too good to let go of. I promise they are worth every last calorie.
|1 recipe for <a href="http://www.stylemepretty.com/living/2013/10/31/best-pancakes-ever/" target="_blank">Best Pancakes Ever</a>||1/2 cup pecan halves|
|1/2 cup maple syrup||1/2 cup heavy cream|
|1/4 cup dark brown sugar||1 tbs butter|
|1 tsp vanilla||1/2 tsp salt|
Toast the pecan halves in a dry skillet over medium/high heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove and set aside
Lower the heat to medium and stir in maple syrup, heavy cream, brown sugar and salt.
Stir over medium heat until desired thickness is reached. The longer you cook, the thicker and meatier it will be.
Remove from heat and stir in the butter, vanilla and the toasted pecans. Let cool for about 10 minutes.
Top pancakes with your praline sauce and try not to eat them all before your family arrives!
For a more "syrupy" version, increase your liquids (cream, syrup) to 1 cup each. You might need to simmer this variety a bit longer.
