Donut Pancake Recipe

Donut Pancake Recipe

This recipe came about completely by accident. When making traditional pancakes we typically avoid using any baking spray, oil, or butter in the skillet. The reason being, exactly why we used it here today. Essentially, if enough oil is used, it will fry the pancake which leaves it tasting similar to a donut but with pancake batter. As a result you get just that, a delicious hybrid of a pancake & donut. Top it with some icing & sprinkles & enjoy the breakfast of your dreams.
