Tools Needed

Sweet Pan Cakes

Basic Ingredients

  • Flour
  • Baking powder
  • A pinch of Salt
  • A little sugar
  • Milk
  • Egg
  • Butter (melted)
  • Chocolate chips / Cocoa powder / Sour cream


First take a bowl add up all dry ingredients measured correctly. The dry ingredients include flour, baking powder, salt and sugar (add cocoa powder in it too if you want to add it). Sift the flour if needed so that you may avoid any kind of lumps in it. Mix all ingredients well. Make sure that you use the right quantity of baking powder or all of your cakes will be ruined.

Once done with dry ingredients it’s time to move to wet ingredients. These include melted butter, eggs and milk. First add up eggs and milk and the dry ingredients than add butter into it and mix thoroughly and fast, so that butter mixes in the batter well. Mix well but don’t over beat because that is going to make your pan cakes tough and too much beating will mix too much air into the batter.

If you find few lumps after mixing the ingredients it’s fine but too much lumps means the batter won’t work well. Now when done with all the mixing you are ready to cook your pan cakes now. Heat a pan or griddle.

Grease it a little. Its better to use non sticking pan, as it will need you to use less oil. You can use butter, vegetable oil or even non sticking spray on your pan. Now fill one whole scoop spoon and pour it into pan in circular motion quickly. 

You need to do it quickly because it cooks fast and taking too much time will give you broken pan cakes from every where around. Once you feel that the upper side is also a little cooked and no more wet, it’s time to turn the side of pan cake. Wait for the other side to become golden brown too. And finally you are done with your first pan cake. Now you have to repeat the same pouring procedure with all of the batter.

So now you’ve learned how to make sweet pan cakes, its now time for you to learn making salty pan cakes and more of you can call them pan cake rolls Isn’t it nice that you can make rolls out of pan cakes too and these may serve as good dinner dish.
