Sweet and Savory Pancake Board

This is the ultimate breakfast or brunch pancake board with sweet and savory pancakes to satisfy everyone's liking. As the same batter can be used to make waffles, add a couple of waffles to further brighten up the choices. This board has something for everyone according to their preferences - like grain-free, savory, sweet, childhood flavors! All the pancakes/waffles are eggless on this board. For vegan options, plant based milk or butter, or maple syrup can be used.

This board features the following pancakes/waffles:

Rose Mochi Pancakes

These are rose flavored soft and chewy eggless mini pancakes with a drizzle of rose cream and rose butter. This is a scrumptious breakfast that is aromatic and flavorful with a unique texture. 

Grain-free moong flour pancakes with orange and saffron flavors is a filling and nutritious pancake that keeps the hunger at bay for long. A drizzle of honey/maple syrup and figs, and of course some whipped are the best toppings.

Fruity pebbles pancake/waffles - Awaken the kid in you with these fruity pebbles pancakes. The cereal added to the pancake makes it tasty and addictive, making great memories. I made a couple of waffles with the same batter as the kids go nuts over this pancake/waffles. Fresh cream, more fruity pebbles, and fruits are great toppings. I made these pancakes in an emoji pan, it can be made in any pan.

Fresh whipped cream is always amazing to serve with pancakes. Cubed butter at room temperature is great to add onto the pancakes. A syrup, like maple syrup or any favorite syrup is a must to indulge. For the rose mochi pancake, a rose flavored cream is the perfect fit. Add a variety of fruits on the board for health, nutrition, and vibrancy. Colored fruits send an open invitation to anyone.

Coming to the last of the variety on this board are the savory garbanzo flour pancakes. This is perfect to add to the board as we may not have a sweet tooth everyday. A savory breakfast is also a most welcomed one here. These are also grain free and can be made into waffles too. We ended up making waffles and waffle bowls too, as it is easy to fill the bowl with lots of toppings and sauces. Bites of this pancake with protein filled paneer, curried hash, fresh kochumber, and sauce - this will make anyone dance!

Curried potato hash is an all-time hit and it is everyone's favorite. This can be added to the savory pancake, along with some pan-fried paneer and bell peppers, and kochumber. Cilantro-yogurt sauce is the perfect one to drizzle on the pancakes/waffles.

If you are looking for other pancake or waffles options, then these Apple Pie Pancakes, Whole Wheat Brown Sugar Boba Pancakes, and Coconut Pancakes/Waffles are great choices. Swap any pancake in the board for these, or make a bigger board including these varieties to entertain a huge crowd.

Tea, coffee, milk, or juice can also be included.

How to arrange this board?

It is not too hard to make a board. Relax, it's not your final exam! Having fun is the most important.  Listen to your heart, and aesthetically arrange the food in the manner that pleases you the most.

I would suggest arranging the cream, butter, sauces, and toppings first. Check if you are satisfied, else move the cups and determine the spot to place them. It is a great idea to choose a platter that would fit the food that you intend to serve. Too big and too small boards would not work. Based on the quantity of the food, choose the right platter.

Place the pancakes/waffles with the right sauces for them closely as much as possible. 

Add the fruits in the spaces. Add a couple of flowers and herbs to make it inviting. Serve immediately.
