More About This Recipe
Pancakes, easy for a crowd and tastes like cake. Impossible, right?
Well, I done did it. I finally figured out a way to eat pancakes and cake at the same time. The solution? This easy and delicious Slow Cooker Pancake Cake. I’ve been eating it for breakfast, brunch and dessert and I won’t stop until it’s all gone. I might even share a slice with someone! Okay, maybe half a slice. Maybe just a bite.
When I’m in more of a sharing mood, however, this cake is a great way to make pancakes for a brunch crowd. It’s dense, lightly sweet and flavored just like a pancake, but its cake-like shape gives it the allure of a decadent dessert. You can top it with whipped cream and fresh berries, or a drizzle of warm maple syrup, or whatever you love to top your flapjacks with! Yes, sprinkles are encouraged, too.
Add your favorite pancake mix-ins to the batter, such as chocolate chips, chopped nuts, fresh berries, etc.
Swap the topping for maple syrup, fruit compote, etc. The sky's the limit!
If you want to top the cake with this yummy whipped cream and berry situation, let it cool completely. Otherwise, you can dig in straight away!
NOW DIG IN. In a very proper, brunch-like way, of course. And enjoy every bite of the magic that is a pancake and a cake all in one.
