Cinnamon-Spiced Pancakes

Is there anything better than a big plate of pancakes for breakfast? I don’t think so! But I was getting tired of my go-to recipe, so I thought I’d spice things up a bit–literally. These pancakes have a nice spicy, sort-of Christmasy flavor. Try them. You’ll know what I mean!

Not to be mean but these pancakes tasted like straight up baking soda. I knew the high ratio of baking soda in this recipe vs. using less baking powder (and no baking soda at all) sounded off but I followed this recipe anyway. I wasted ingredients for two batches before realizing the problem wasn’t entirely the almond flour swap I did in my first attempt. The food network recipe for pancakes saved day (and the brunch I was hosting).
