Root Beer Pancakes

Looking for a fun weekend breakfast for the family? Well, look no further...these pancakes are perfect! Fluffy, moist and sure to please everyone. Top with a scoop of homemade whipped cream and lightly dust with powder sugar.

Root Beer Pancakes

Root Beer Pancakes
serves 8

1 1/2 cups Root Beer ( I used A & W)
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
cooking spray

Combine dry ingredients into a bowl. Add Root Beer, eggs, butter, and vanilla to the dry mixture and mix. Mix until all lumps are gone.

Heat a lightly greased griddle to medium heat, adjust heat as needed. I use an electric griddle and set the temperature to 350 degrees.  Pour or scoop approximately 1/3 cup of batter onto the griddle, use more or less batter to create your desired size of pancakes. Brown pancake on both sides and serve warm!

Homemade Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup powder sugar, sifted

Chill your mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Then in a large metal bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Scoop (using an ice cream scoop) whipped cream and top pancakes. Lightly dust with powder sugar and serve with a smile!



  1. These look delicious!! I'd love to have you link this up to Tasty Thursdays on The Mandatory Mooch. It's a new linky party starting today. Hope to see you there. Thanks, Nichi

  2. This sounds delicious I am getting hungry just thinking about it. I love the idea of the ice cream to top it off almost like a root beer float.

  3. Ohh these look incredibly delicious!! Can't wait to make them!

  4. Well, I know what I'm making for breakfast this weekend. Root beer is The Boy's favorite. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Look at you linking up again! : ) Featuring you tonight!

  6. Made these for lunch today, and they're excellent! I did discover I can't make huge pancakes the size of my skillet the way I usually do, though...by the time they were stable enough to flip the bottoms were almost too done. So I made smaller ones (two per skillet) the next time and they were perfect! Thank you so much for sharing!
