Easy Rosemary-Honey Pancake Stacks Recipe Makes a Savory-Sweet Treat

If you’re like us, you know that a short stack hot off the griddle on a Sunday morning is a perfect way to kick off a lazy day. Just thinking about the melty pat of butter on top plus the warm maple syrup that pools on the plate is enough to make our mouths water. But why reserve these sweet fluffy treats only for weekend breakfast or brunch? Our test kitchen manager, Susan Chiusano came up with this Rosemary-Honey Pancake Stacks recipe for a deliciously-easy dessert any day of the week.

Susan’s rosemary-infused honey really makes this dish shine. And it’s super-simple to make. First, thin the honey slightly with a bit of water, add a few rosemary sprigs, and let it simmer until the flavors blend. The savory herb perfectly complements the sweetness of the honey. Next, Susan griddles the pancakes into mini rounds. Then she layers them with fruity jam, stacks ’em up and drizzles with the honey mixture. It’s like having an individual layer cake all to yourself! Whether you make them for breakfast, brunch or dessert, these delightful treats are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth!
