Carrot cake pancakes
Good old-fashioned homemade pancakes are a great way to start the day. Adding the goodness of carrots and raisins makes us all feel a little less guilty about cake for breakfast! Make it a little healthier and top it with fresh fruit and yogurt instead of syrup.
I love carrot cake filled with warm spices and plump raisins. Any excuse to eat it for breakfast is fine by me!
