Las Vegas Carrot Pancakes

Las Vegas Carrot Pancakes

At first, I thought this was a birthday cake but it was just an insanely indulgent breakfast. Only in Vegas! Actually, only at the Hexx restaurant in the Paris Hotel Las Vegas. We had to create a British version of their Carrot Cake Pancakes! For an extra special Pancake Day, serve these like a layer cake, each layer divided with cream cheese syrup. Dollop some cream cheese syrup in the middle of the top pancake, sprinkle with toasted nuts, grated carrot, orange segments and sultanas then drizzle with maple or cinnamon syrup. Sparklers are optional but not at all out of place. Indulge!
