Special Pancakes (Batter Cakes)

Recipe by Tinkerbell
READY IN: 13mins




  • Using a serrated knife, trim the crusts off the bread & then cut the bread into 1/2 inch cubes.
  • In a large bowl, combine the bread cubes, flour, sugar and baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk & eggs, then stir in the melted butter. Add to dry ingredients, stirring to blend.
  • Let mixture stand for 5 minutes.
  • Stir mixture well, breaking up some of the cubes.
  • Heat large non-stick griddle or skillet over medium heat (I use 300-350° on my old electric griddle).
  • Lightly brush the griddle with vegetable oil (I use a paper towel folded several times to spread the oil evenly onto the griddle.) Non-stick cooking spray can be substituted but I have found we prefer to use the light film of oil because it really adds to the outer color & texture of the pancake.
  • Pour a scant 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle. Adjust the heat to medium-low and cook until the bottoms are lightly browned.
  • With a large spatula, carefully flip the pancakes over to brown the other side. Repeat til all the batter is used up. Serve with syrups or jams of your choice.
