Today we have a recipe for you courtesy of Adrianna Adarme and her new book PANCAKES!!! This book is made for pancake lovers / breakfast lovers, and has 72 awesome recipes for pancakes of all kinds. While Pancakes has mostly breakfast pancake recipes (duh), she also has a entire section dedicated to dinner pancakes which is pretty cool. I picked this recipe because when we were shooting this book (I shot it, and Jenny food styled it!) I ate this and it was delicious. I ate the one we shot for this post also. So good! This recipe is for the huaraches, so you can add whatever toppings you like and it will be delicious. We added carnitas, iceberg lettuce, queso fresco, tomatoes, cilantro, and lime juice. Done. Easy. Delicious.
We are giving away one copy of Pancakes to a random person who comments on this post and tells us what their favorite way to eat pancakes are. You gotta remember to write your email in the email field so we can get a hold of you if you are the winner. We are taking entrants from now till Monday at 8am. So comment before then if you want to enter! Woo! A winner will be announced on this same post on Monday. Good luck!

- 1 cup masa harina
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water
- ¼ cup refried beans (canned or homemade)
- Vegetable oil, for the skillet
- In a medium bowl, mix together the masa, salt, and warm water. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes.
- Add the refried beans to a bowl of a food processor and pulse until the beans become a paste. Alternatively, you could mash them with a fork.
- Separate the dough into 4 balls. Roll each ball into an oval shape. Using for thumb, make a long, deep well in the center. It will resemble the shape of a cigar. Place 1 scant teaspoon of the beans into the well. Pinch the cavity closed, enclosing the beans completely.
- One at a time place each piece of filled dough between two pieces of plastic wrap, Using a rolling pin, lightly press into a 4-inch-long oval that is ¼-inch thick.
- Preheat your skillet over medium-high heat and brush with ½ teaspoon of vegetable oil. Add the huaraches and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, flipping when lightly golden brown. Continue until all 4 huaches are cooked. Remove from skillet and set aside.
- Place the skillet over medium-high heat, and pour in vegetable oil until it reaches ½ inch up the sides. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the huaraches to the pan and fry for 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown on each side. Gently turn and cook on the opposite side for 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve hot.

Ree’s sour cream pancakes with real maple syrup on a cold winter morning. Best part of waking up.
with applesauce and maple syrup
I love orange cardamom pancakes! Silver dollar sized with a side of raspberry sauce…mmmm = weekend delight!
My favorite are fluffy ricotta pancakes with lemony maple syrup – gives it a delicious zing !
I’ve been big on pancakes since i was a little kid and my grandma made these little silver dollar jobs for me and sis, but couldn’t quite keep up with our appetite for more.
My favorite is old-fashioned blueberry pancakes (no canned blueberries in syrup please!). With real maple syrup.
I just love cornmeal pancakes. Can’t wait to read the book! :)
The best pancake I had was with a bit of lemon juice and sugar -so fresh!
I love plain pancakes with berry preserves (usually raspberry) and a bit of either plain or vanilla yoghurt on top.
Its too good!
I can’t think of a pancake that I didn’t like. But my favorite pancakes are homemade with blueberries on a Sunday morning, eaten on the porch.
Pancakes for dinner is my fave! Lots of melted butter and syrup!
My favorite recipe of pancakes is: raspberries and pineapple flamed filling with sweet cream cheese. Decorated with melted chocolate and a little dust sugar.
I like to eat pancakes at the beach, because that’s where my Grandma lives and boy, can she make pancakes. Even at 90. Just bisquick, bacon grease and her hands. Pure comfort food.
I will have to go with the classic chocolate chip pancake as my favorite, but then again I don’t have a lot of experience with pancake making, this book would be very helpful!
Hot out of the pan of course!
Actually from the other comments it seems I am in the minority of not knowing how to liven up my pancake repertoire other than syrup and butter. Love the savory pancake ideas!
My favourite way to eat pancakes is either plain with Nutella and fruit or pumpkin pancakes with a vanilla glaze.
I haven’t had pancakesin ages. But I love the classic sugar and lemon pancakes perfect for any time of day
I love buttermilk pancakes with blueberries cooked in them and covered in blueberry syrup.
I love to make whole wheat banana pancakes with homemade plain yogurt and pecans. So delicious! Great giveaway!
I am pretty simple when it comes to pancakes. Blueberry with real maple syrup.
I love keeping my simple and real: Fresh blueberries in the pancakes – top w/real unsalted butter and pure (warm) maple syrup. OMG – BB! (Breakfast Bliss)
I like the classic real butter and real maple syrup approach:)
