crispy waffle babies

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This recipe for crispy waffle babies is more about technique than anything.  That’s why I used a waffle and pancake mix~~I was also excited and wanted to get started with my new idea! I wanted to see if I could make a rippled and fluted pancake that has crisp for crunch and grooves for holding and absorbing syrup.  I actually Googled this on images, and found nothing that looked like what I wanted…all were regular pancake styles.

So I decided to use my Lodge cast iron grill skillet, with deep grooves, to see what would happen.  I’m pretty darn happy with the end result, but plan to keep perfecting the process~~maybe you’ll see these crispy pancake babies in restaurants, dives, diners and other food blogs soon~~
Crispy Pancake Babies with Fresh Raspberries
Makes: 15-18 about 3″ diameter babies
What you need:
Bob’s Red Mill Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix~~Follow package instructions which calls for eggs, water, and oil.
NOTE:  I used milk instead of water for a fluffier pancake.  I used coconut oil.
1/2 cup coconut oil for skillet
2 cups fresh raspberries
Maple Syrup
Crispy Pancake Babies with Fresh Raspberries
What you do:
Over medium heat, melt 1/4 cup coconut oil (reserving the remainder for adding after you make about half the pancakes). Let the oil get hot.   I used a small spring scoop to dollop about 3 to 4 pancakes in the skillet at a time.  When bubbles begin to show in the center and around the edges, gently flip and cook on the other side.

Repeat process with all the batter adding more coconut oil as needed~~this oil adds to the crisp of the baby pancake!

Serve with warm maple syrup or whatever you prefer and fresh raspberries.

  1. I bet a cast iron waffle pan would work too! Definitely going to try these.

  2. You really allow it to become look so simple using your presentation nonetheless to find this matter for being basically an issue that I think I’d in no way realize. It kind of feels too complex and very huge for me personally. Now i’m waiting for the next post, We’ll seek to purchase the adhere of computer!

  3. Please post a picture of the pan you used. Could I just use a waffle iron?

    • Hi, Tim…yes, you could probably use a waffle iron…what I found w/the Lodge cast iron skillet grill pan (which I use ALL the time…including making bread in it for a crunchy bottom and interesting pattern on it) is that the crispiness is much more intense (maybe b/c of the heat and not being closed, as w/a waffle iron, using some of the cooking via steam?) than a waffle iron…I also have a waffle skillet (Williams & Sonoma) where I can make individual about 3″ diameter baby waffles, but it doesn’t give the finish like the cast iron skillet. Here’s a link to what I’m talking about…you could also use a rectangular grill if you wish! Thanks for visiting, my sweet friend!! xo Ally http://www.target.com/p/lodge-10-5-square-grill-pan/-/A-714130
