Sweet Breakfast Recipes Are My Favorite

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. I don’t always have the time to have a super fancy breakfast, but when I do I enjoy it.

I think one of the best things about breakfast is that it has so many options that are called “breakfast foods” but are really like desserts.

I mean think about it. Cinnamon rolls? Sugary delicious-ness. French toast – add some cinnamon and sugar like I do and whalah! Sugary sweet. And then you get to add syrup. More sugar! Even toast with jelly is sweet and tasty. And what about banana bread or muffins? Those are breakfast foods right? And cereal? My fave is cinnamon toast crunch. Talk about sugar! With or without milk I can’t resist it!

That’s why I think breakfast rocks. It can be lots of fun to have breakfast for dinner too. It’s dinner and dessert all in one!

These Funfetti Pancakes Taste Just Like Cake

Unfortunately I can’t eat like that all the time. Which is the leading reason I don’t have crazy breakfasts regularly.

But for a treat (or any other reason, really) these pancakes are perfect! Cake in pancake form.

I was shocked at my husband’s reaction to them too. Actually all of funfetti week was a surprise in terms of his reaction. He claims to not love sweets too much, but he got quite excited about funfetti stuff. When I finished taking pictures and told him we were ready to eat, I thought for sure he’d want his pancakes with regular syrup so that they weren’t too sweet. Instead he stole my plate. I was shocked, but happy. I love when he can share in my love of sweets. 🙂
