Prepare the Table

Pancake Table Decor
Pancake table decor does not have to be very elaborate. Just make a sign that says something like "It's Pancake Day" or "Pancakes and Pajamas," and you're good to go. You can make a paper pancake garland as a backdrop if you want.

Top Recipes for Pancakes
The following recipes are a must for your pancake bar. They are not like the ordinary ones and taste amazing - after all, your pancake bar has to be extraordinary.
Nutella is everyone's favorite, and we cannot disagree on that. Some Nutella-filled pancakes can set your pancake bar off to slay. They are the best choice if you are looking for delicious, fulfilling pancakes for an event.
Make Nutella circles of around 1 tbsp on parchment paper. Flatten them out with the back of a spoon. Let them freeze.
Put 2 tbsp sugar and 2 eggs in a bowl and beat them until they are creamy. Pour in 200 ml milk, 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, and 2 tsp vanilla powder, and whisk until well combined. Pour the batter into a jar with a nozzle.
Heat a pan over medium heat and brush it with oil. Pour the batter onto the pan. Place the frozen Nutella and add another layer of batter on top. Cook both sides until they are light brown. Serve in some elegant disposable serving platters.
Banana Chocolate Chip Ebelskivers
To make banana chocolate chip pancakes, separate two large egg whites in a bowl. Whisk the egg whites until frothy and leave the yolks for later use.
Prepare the batter: In a separate bowl, put 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tbsp brown sugar, ½ tbsp white sugar, ½ tsp baking powder, ½ tsp salt, 1 cup whole milk, 2 tbsp vinegar, and the separated egg yolks. Whisk everything together and fold in the egg whites.
Prepare the filling: Mash two large bananas and mix in 1 tbsp brown sugar and 3 tbsp chopped walnuts.
Cooking: Put a muffin or cupcake tray in a large pan over medium heat. Brush the tray with oil and sprinkle powdered sugar in each mold. Fill the molds halfway with the batter and then put an equal amount of banana-walnut filling over them. Next, sprinkle chocolate chips and again pour the batter to fill each mold up to the top.
Once you feel like the pancakes are turning golden-brown from the sides, flip them over and cook the bottom part. Serve with raspberries or red cherries.
