There are a few foods that make us swoon, and pancakes are definitely one of them. We know they're a simple dish, made with nothing more than common items we have stored in our pantry. But they taste like a treat. Like chocolatey brownies and grilled cheese sandwiches, they're simple and perfect. With one bite of pancakes, we're quickly reminded that the world really is a wonderful place.

Pancakes have another trick up their sleeve. They let us do something that most other comfort foods don't: they give us an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast -- they are basically cakes, after all. (And we are forever indebted to them for that.) In honor of this breakfast cake, we scoured the web for the best, most tempting recipes. And we found them.
