I usually make these for my husband and children for Valentine's Day. But they are great anytime.

Making pancakes from scratch is so simple and these cherry vanilla pancakes will be delicious to wake up to. We love the presentation with the fruit topping and whipped cream. A nice change from syrup. The pancake itself is delicious and they're made silver dollar size (smaller). There is a slight vanilla flavor that's different than what you'd find with pre-made pancake mix. These will be delicious for a special occasion but easy enough you can have them all the time.
