This past August, The Original Pancake House Denver hosted the Kids Pancake Recipe Challenge. Open to all young pancake fans, the contest challenged youngsters to create the wackiest, most creative pancake recipes to share with the Original Pancake House Denver community. All recipes were put up for popular vote on our Facebook page and the winner was announced on National Pancake Day, September 26.
We are thrilled to congratulate Cole Brody on his winning recipe for Vanilla Brown Sugar Gluten Free Pancakes! Recently we took a few moments to chat with Cole about his love for pancakes and his recipe inspiration. Here is what he had to say:
OPH Denver: What was your inspiration for Homemade Gluten Free Vanilla Brown Sugar pancakes?
Cole: I was trying to make really good pancakes that are gluten free and I love brown sugar for the sweetness that it makes the pancakes.
OPH Denver: Do you and your family make pancakes together at home often?
Cole: I make pancakes every Saturday and Sunday for my family, unless we sometimes go to Pancake House. My favorite part of going to the (Original) Pancake House is they make the best gluten free pancakes ever and I love them and I love the bacon.
OPH Denver: What are your favorite pancake toppings?
Cole: We usually eat our pancakes with maple syrup or whipped cream but my favorite toppings are chocolate chips and strawberry syrup. But not together.
OPH Denver: What is the craziest pancake you’ve ever had or made?
Cole: We made Lifesaver Gummy pancakes once and the Lifesavers melted and turned into jelly. We also made Fruity Pebbles pancakes and they tasted like fruity pancakes.
OPH Denver: What is your favorite part about breakfast?
Cole: Making pancakes for my family and they tell me how good they are.
OPH Denver: What grade are you in and what do you want to be when you grow up?
Cole: I am in 3rd grade at Greenwood Elementary and I want to be an airplane pilot and own an airline.
From the entire OPH Denver family, we would like to congratulate Cole on his winning recipe! Want to make Cole’s Gluten Free Vanilla Brown Sugar Pancakes at home? Cole was kind enough to share his secrets. Happy cooking!
