Hootenanny is a perfect breakfast for a crazy mom.  Or crazy kids.  Or just crazy appetites!Hootenanny with syrup on a dish.

I asked my daughter if she’d like to help me make some Hootenanny for breakfast the other morning and I got this look:

That basically means something along the lines of “Mom. You’re crazy.”

Or, maybe “How did I end up stuck with the wackadoo for a mother?”

It could also mean “Yep. She’s finally lost her mind.”

Whatever. Children can be so judgemental.

Hootenanny has such a nice ring to it!

Hootenanny, also called Volcano Pancakes, is a super quick, super simple breakfast that tastes like a mix between pancakes and french toast.

It calls for basic ingredients that you’re sure to have around and the kids will love watching it poof up in crazy shapes.

Hootenanny tastes a whole lot like pancakes and French toast, but can you guess why we make it way more often?

You add everything to a baking dish, pop it in the oven, and WALK AWAY.Hootenanny erupting in a glass baking pan.

This is the perfect kind of morning treat, if you ask me.

Nobody has time to be flipping pancakes or soaking bread in eggs or dealing with a waffle maker at 7am. (Although my best waffles are kind of worth the effort.)

I drenched ours in maple syrup and powdered sugar, but Hootenanny tastes great with fresh fruit on top as well.

The best days always start with copious amounts of maple syrup and powdered sugar.

That’s a fact.
