I’ve been planning to do a post about Easter Brunch ideas — but it got too big. Like WAY TOO BIG. You wouldn’t have hung around to read them all. So, I thought a more prudent approach would be to break it down into little bite-sized chunks (Did you like that food blogger humor?) Today is about pancakes, waffles and french toast — and other related griddled fare. I’ve collaborated with some of my best blogger friends to bring you this dynamite roundup. Prepare to drool.
This post is dedicated to my daughter, Emily who never met a pancake, waffle or french toast that she didn’t like.
I have to be honest, if I’d thought that “vegan” looked like this when I was younger, I probably wouldn’t be a meat eater today… Vegan French Toast with Caramelized Bananas and Berries via Lauren Caris Cooks is just mouthwatering.
Blueberry and lemon are a classic combination and these crepes are probably more like a dessert than a breakfast, but for Easter, I’m willing to overlook that. Try the Blueberry Lemon Curd Crepes from Homemade Food Junkie.
Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes via One Clever Chef are crazy good.

Secretly, french toast is one of my favorite breakfasts — I love the eggy-softness with the griddled crust. These Torrijas have an unusual spice blend that adds drama to breakfast. Torrijas – Spanish French Toast from Caroline’s Cooking.
