you'll be happy to know that National Pancake Week is February 19 25. They're filling, delicious, decadent and certainly deserve their own celebration. Whether you make them at home or go out to eat, there are plenty of ways to participate in the week.

Have a pancake potluck

One of the best ways to spread the pancake love is by hosting a pancake potluck. Invite your family and friends over and ask each person to bring a different type of pancakes, preferably one they've never had before. It will give every guest a chance to try something different and reignite their love of the breakfast food.

Learn new recipes

A basic pancake recipe requires only a handful of ingredients including baking powder, flour, eggs, salt, sugar, butter and milk. I'm not a big fan of plain pancakes; I think they're a bit too boring. If you feel the same way, there are a variety of other varieties to make including Banana Pancakes, Chocolate Chip Pancakes, Beer Pancakes, Pumpkin Pancakes, Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, Blueberry Pancakes, and PB & J Pancakes. There are plenty of varieties to make for yourself or to make for others.

Have a different version every day

There are more than enough types to try one or more each day throughout National Pancake Week. You don't have to eat them just for breakfast. They're also delicious to have for a snack or for dinner. Add different toppings on them each day if you'd like, such as loose chocolate chips, powdered sugar, fruit, and nuts.

Visit breakfast eateries

If you're looking to go out for pancakes during National Pancake Week, there are plenty of places to go in NYC. Some of the top eateries to go where you can dig into a stack of delicious pancakes include Shopsins on Essex Street, Clinton Street Baking Company on Clinton Street, Good Enough to Eat on Amsterdam Avenue, and Kitchenette which has one location on Amsterdam Avenue and another in Tribeca on Chambers Street.

Wear themed accessories

Besides eating pancakes during National Pancake Week, another option is to deck yourself out in themed accessories. Some options to consider include Pancake Earrings, Scented Pancake Stack Ring, Stacked Pancakes Bag/Mobile Charm, or a Pancake Necklace. All are inexpensive enough options that you can purchase a gift for yourself and a loved one.

With so many ways to celebrate National Pancake Week from February 19 25, you may just want to continue digging in even after the week is over. Whether you're eating basic pancakes, wheat, vegan, or one of the many flavor varieties, chances are there's at least one type that will tickle your taste buds.
