September 26 is National Pancake Day. I’m not in the habit of knowing food holidays, but the date also happens to be my birthday. Of all the food holidays I could have gotten, this is a pretty awesome one. It’s cake… in breakfast form! Here’s one of my all time favorite pancake recipes for you to enjoy. I found roasted, salted pecan halves at Trader Joe’s. They are optional, but it’s quite a nice combo with the sweet and salty thing going on.
