Pancakes the Partake HQ Way

Pancakes the Partake HQ Way

Since their launch January 2022, our Pancake & Waffle Mixes have been in constant rotation in our kitchens. We can say with confidence that these breakfast mixes really do it all—from pie crust to banana bread, there are various recipes you can explore. However, we have to admit, we love a classic here at Partake HQ. Just ask our CEO and founder, Denise, who whips up a stack of our pancakes every morning for her daughter, Vivi.

Liking the classics doesn’t mean we don’t love topping our pancakes to keep things interesting. We polled the Partake team to discover the pancake toppings that take their stack of pancakes to the next level.  


“There’s nothing like the classic pancake stack with a handful of berries, dare I say no syrup needed! I love the combination of the refreshing berries and fluffy pancakes.” - Denise, Founder & CEO

“My favorite pancake toppings are fresh blueberries and lemon zest. The tart yet sweet blueberries + hint citrus makes me feel like I am getting the best of both worlds,  sweet and fluffy pancakes + my favorite fruit!” - Jade, Content Manager

“My favorite pancake toppings are fresh strawberries with a bit of whipped cream and syrup, of course! I also love adding chocolate chips into my pancakes if I have them on hand. Who doesn't love chocolate and strawberries? It's definitely one of my favorite flavor combos!” - Kaitlyn, Digital & Content Coordinator

“My favorite pancake toppings are bananas! They add a subtle sweet flavor and the texture combo is unreal. Definitely a slept on combination!” - Briea, Customer Service & Community Manager
