There is nothing quite like a stack of fluffy, delicious pancakes in the morning. This homemade pecan pancake recipe is easier to make than you might think. It’s also special enough to serve for a special occasion and simple enough for a weekend morning.

Most of the ingredients needed are items you probably already have in your pantry. The highlighted ingredient is of course the pecans. I like buying pre-chopped pecans to make this recipe even easier but you can chop your own pecans with a knife or a food processor.

Recipe tips and tricks

  • Let batter sit for 5-10 minutes before cooking. This helps to make fluffier pancakes.
  • Don’t overmix the pancake batter or they could become tough.
  • Once you flip the pancakes, don’t press down on them with your spatula. This will help keep them fluffy.
  • Make sure to constantly stir the praline sauce while on the heat. Stirring will help to prevent the sauce from burning.
  • You can toast the pecans in the oven or in a skillet on the stove. Toasting helps bring out the flavor of the pecans.
  • If you need to keep the pancakes warm while cooking, place them on a baking sheet in 200 degree oven.

How to store

Store the praline sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When ready to use you can serve it cold or warm it on low heat in a sauce pan on the stove.

Store any leftover pancakes in a sealable bag or container in the refrigerator. They can be reheated in a skillet or in the microwave.
