Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 8
  • Pancake mix of choice
  • Ingredients required on pancake mix
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Pancake mix of choice - any will work. Even our bulk homemade pancake mix makes for great breakfast cake. For the pictures of the cake in this recipe, we used high protein Kodiak Cakes.
  3. Prepare the mix according to the package directions, exactly as you would for pancakes. If it is just add water, just add water. If it says to add milk or eggs, add milk or eggs, etc.
  4. Add in any mix-ins (the photos in this post is just the mix, we didn't do add-ins for this one).
  5. Prepare your pan by spraying the proper pan for the amount of mix. The pan size depends on how much you are making. The examples are based on the dry mix amount, not the amount after adding the liquids. 8x8 = 2 cups or less of dry mix, 11x7 = 3 cups dry mix, 9x13 = 4 cups dry mix.
  6. Pour it into the cake pan of choice.
  7. Bake for 30-40 mins, or until top is crusty and knife is not wet, but it will likely have wetter batter as it is super moist and dense, denser than brownies. So it will be done when there is no liquid, but the knife has clumpy bits on it (I hope that makes sense).
  8. Serve warm with toppings of choice like the favored butter and syrup!
