Banana Walnut Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter

Banana Walnut Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter

For my birthday, my friend Sarah suggested we have breakfast so I chose Clinton Street Baking Company as I'd tried their pancakes a year earlier during Pancake Month & they are exactly how pancakes should be: light and fluffy, with delicious toppings. Their secret is to fold egg whites into the batter. I had the Banana Walnut Pancakes with a Warm Maple Butter ($14). Pancake heaven. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday breakfast, thanks Sarah! Tip: Clinton Street Baking Company is extremely popular (no surprise there!), so to avoid the lines and waiting times for a table go for breakfast like I did and get there a couple minutes before opening time (8am). We got a table right away and once we left the place was completely full.
