Celebrate the New Year with Pancakes

New Year’s Eve is one of the biggest parties all year. The fun shouldn’t end when the clock strikes midnight though. If you have young kids, staying up all night isn’t even an option. You can wait until the morning of New Year’s Day to celebrate in a fun way with the whole family. Make breakfast a celebration with a special pancake recipe. Start a new tradition this year with a party in the morning!

Choosing the Best Pancake

Choose from the most delicious and fun pancake recipes! If your very first meal defines the whole year ahead, then choosing the right one will surely be important. Here are a few tips if you want to start your year off with this favorite food. A pancake will have to check all of the below-described criteria to be dubbed the best one!


Forget all about regular pancake recipes, you can prepare them any day. Instead, go for a bolder recipe. Prepare colorful rainbow pancakes. A few drops of food coloring can create wonders in terms of your hotcakes’ color. Or, if you don’t want to use food coloring, you can always give gelatin powder a try. The good thing about the latter is it will give your hotcakes some fruity flavor as well, but the downside is they won’t be as vibrant as if you opt for food coloring.

Red velvet pancakes are also a great idea for the New Year. Red is the color of love, so maybe preparing them will bring you some luck in that department this year.


How can you ensure a fun and happy year if you don’t prepare the fittingly named Funfetti pancakes? With all the colorful sprinkles, these are sure to brighten your day if not your year.


Of course, you don’t want to enter in the New Year with a bland breakfast. Below you will find the best ideas for toppings and add-ins for your hotcakes.

Pancakes Add-ins and Toppings

A pancake is only as good as the ingredients you use to prepare it. So be careful with what you put in your New Year’s edition.


Blueberries and strawberries will make every batter ten times better! And this goes for both the taste and health benefits. FYI: berries are the world’s best antioxidants!

Chocolate chips

Chocolate is always a good idea, and be them semi-sweet or sweet, chocolate chips will make your pancakes look like polka dotted beauties, and what’s more will induce the production of feel-good endorphins so your mood will be at its highest!


Maple syrup or chocolate syrup will definitely give your pancakes additional flavor, so use them any chance you get (go for the first one if you are trying to keep things on the healthier side, and the latter if you just don’t care).

Go ahead and ring in the New Year as a family with breakfast. One thing is guaranteed: you will have fun, and we think that’s the best way to start 2017!
