Graham Cracker Pancakes and S'mores Pancakes by extension

One of the great things about summer is that all of the fixin's for s'mores go on sale at the grocery store. Not that I ever go camping. But I do make use of those fixin's throughout the year. Here's one example: graham cracker pancakes. The pancakes are a little hearty, with a hint of graham.

This is all very good... but s'mores pancakes would be better! I added chocolate chips and mini marshmallows to the batter. The result was only ok--the marshmallows tend to disappear into the pancake, so it ends up being more like graham cracker chocolate chip pancakes. And there ain't nothing wrong with that.

But in my dream world, the ultimate s'mores pancakes would consist of marshmallow fluff and melted chocolate slathered between two giant graham cracker pancakes. Sounds good, doesn't it?

No picture! My camera ran out of batteries!

Graham Cracker Pancakes
Serves 6

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (cinnamon works, too)
6 tablespoons brown sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pecans, optional
2 cup milk
4 tablespoons melted butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

1) In a medium-sized bowl, mix dry ingredients together.
2) In a large bowl, combine wet ingredients.
3) Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until smooth.
4) Using a 1/4 measuring cup, pour batter onto hot, buttered frying pan.
6) Cook batter until bubbles begin to form and pop; flip. Pancakes are done when the center of the cake springs back lightly when touched. Enjoy!
