There are pancakes and then there are sweet cream pancakes. I promise they are not the same at all! The first time I tried sweet cream pancakes was at a Black Bear in Washington. It wasn’t even my meal because I almost always order a Denver Omelet. Since the hubby was so sweet he shared a bit of his 3-stack pancake breakfast. I think I may have taken full advantage of his generosity since he doesn’t offer any until near the end of his meal. This experience changed the pancake games forever. Hey, I’ll take what I can get! The fluffy creamy goodness in this breakfast pancake recipe is to.die.for!
