Of course, to go with this syrup I needed some pancakes, which meant enlisting Taylor into my breakfast army. Originally he just started making silver dollar pancakes (Sym’s request), but then he busted out my pancake molds and got fancy. I actually bought these a million years ago, but my lack of pancake skills and everyone else’s unwillingness to try them meant they’ve been sitting unused in the drawer since about 2005 or so. But Taylor is awesome, so we got pancakes shaped like the frog prince…
… a princess, and some unicorns.
We served them with my mandarin orange syrup (so yummy, but I over-thickened mine a little) and fresh raspberries.
