Four Scrumptious Stacks for Pancake Day

Today, while celebrants don their best purple, green and gold for bead tossing and other Mardi Gras merriment, others will be honoring Shrove Tuesday — or Pancake Day — by shoving flapjacks down their pie holes.

It’s common practice to eat rich, fatty foods on the day before the Lent fasting season begins (hence the name “Fat Tuesday”) — and what better food to satisfy this requirement than thick, buttery, fluffy pancakes drenched with maple syrup, sugary fruit toppings and candied nuts?

To help you get your pancake on, we’ve rounded up our favorite recipes for your stacking pleasure. (Stack ‘em high as you dare.)

Oatmeal Yogurt Pancakes with Blackberry Crush (shown above)
Plump, tender and topped with dark berries and Greek yogurt, these johnnycakes are sweet and tart — how could you not have a crush on them?

A breakfast made for sweets-lovers.

Carrot Cake Pancakes with Maple-Cream Cheese Drizzle and Toasted Pecans
Yeah, you read that right. This recipe is basically dessert disguised as breakfast — and we’re perfectly okay with that.

There's a surprise waiting in these stacks.

Georgia’s Stuffed Banana Praline Pancakes
Nothing beats the surprise of biting into your stacks and finding a warm, aromatic banana center (except perhaps the topping of praline sauce).

Even though the cakes are fluffy, you don't need to be.

Blueberry-Almond Griddle Cakes
If you must dial back the fat in your Fat Tuesday, opt for Bobby Deen’s healthier (but still tasty) griddle cakes made with whole-wheat flour, minimal oil and a measured amount of syrup. You can revel and watch your waistline.
