Pancake Boards Are The Fun New Way To Serve Breakfast

Pancake boards are growing in popularity with good reason. Featuring pancakes, these boards are an aesthetic and practical option for brunch!

You’ve heard of cheese boards and charcuterie boards, but have you ever heard of pancake boards? They are the new sensation that is going to make you love brunch like you’ve never loved it before. After all, it makes our breakfast favorite, flapjacks, the star of the show.

Pancake boards can be served at any time of the day but they are especially great for brunch. If you really love pancakes, you can eat them at every meal and try a different tray style.

At the very heart of a pancake tray are the flapjacks. From there, the sky is really the limit and you can include any toppings you like. Think of the pancakes as being a blank canvas that you can add anything to, from syrup and fruit to chocolate chips or whipped cream. You might even want to try some savory pancakes with anything from bacon and sausage to cheese and eggs.

If you are running short on inspiration, social media can help. Just check Instagram with the hashtag #pancakeboard and you will see quite a few options. These are perfect for building your own pancake board using your unique touches.

Check out this board from @everyday_tables. It has everything needed for a great breakfast.

You might be surprised by how easy it is to load up a pancake board. You can even make it more convenient by making the pancakes in advance and freezing them.

“You can buy frozen pancakes at your local supermarket and just follow the instructions to reheat,” @perfectpearevents suggested.

Pancake boards are the new trend in brunch gatherings but making one can seem overwhelming when you’re pressed for time. Make it less overwhelming by making your pancakes ahead of time, freezing them, and reheating in the oven the day of your event. Hate making pancakes or concerned that your pancakes look a bit wonky? 🙋🏻‍♀️ You can buy frozen pancakes at your local supermarket and just follow the instructions to reheat. Jazz up your board with pretty condiments and your guests will never know the difference. Shortcuts like these can take the stress out of home entertaining and leave you feeling like a brunch pro.
