Panini Pancakes

Panini Pancakes

fluffy panini pancakes

I was a huge consumer of instant pancakes for years, until I started baking and got the courage to make my own pancake mixture. The benefits of making your own mixture is just innumerable. Like for one, I can choose to add more flavors to my pancakes, like chocolate or caramel since my kids are huge consumers of cocoa. If you have guests at home you can always  make big batches that can suffice until forever =)  For frugal mothers, diy pancakes are certainly more affordable and formed exactly according to your own preferences.

I normally cook pancakes on a pan but little did I know that a Panini Press  can be used too! There’s more to just cooking pancakes on this versatile appliance, because of it’s non-stick feature, grilling is an option too! You can make kebabs or broil a variety of foods like meat and veggies; toast sandwiches or fry eggs, bacon, meat, and of course, pancakes!

This Pancake recipe will give you fluffier cakes when you opt to cook it on a pan, but since we’re using a Panini Press, expect a flat pancake yet its texture is still very soft on the inside.

Now, we’re ready to make our Panini pressed  flapjacks! =)

    First, I gotta get that panini press, hihi. I checked it out and it’s really budget friendly pala, I thought it’s expensive, or maybe I saw the high end brands before.

  • Oh, so cheap! I can imagine a lot of things to make with that panini press. Exciting!

  • thank you for the recipe, wondering what brand of white vinegar did you use?

    • ruthalarcon

      Hi there! I used white vinegar. Datu Puti will do but if you’re using a different brand then that’s fine as long as it’s white vinegar. 🙂

  • levy

    I want that panini maker too. I’ll check Ensogo, I hope it’s still available.

  • I never knew you can make so many things in a panini maker. I have always wanted one because I am a huge fan of paninis, but now I want it even more!

  • So cool! I’ve been dreaming I’d have a panini press soon! 🙂
