Carrot Cake Pancakes

How to make the best carrot cake pancakes - This simple and easy recipe is also super healthy! Can be made for breakfast, brunch, or dinner. Brown sugar and cinnamon make them a little sweet and very tasty, a hit with kids and adults.

To celebrate the official launch of Coffee Filters to Cheese Graters next Monday {squee!}, I’m running content from the book this week. Coffee Filters to Cheese Graters 3d transparent

You can buy Coffee Filters to Cheese Graters: Creative Ways to Use Just About Everything next Monday, July 14. 

This awesome recipe comes from the section on using cheese graters. You need either a cheese grater or a food processor to get the carrots cut up in small enough pieces to make the pancakes. A quick word of warning about these pancakes. You can’t cook them quickly.

You have to cook them slowly over medium-low heat in order for the carrots to cook inside the pancakes.

If you cook the outsides of the pancakes too quickly, you’ll have fluffy pancakes with crunchy carrots inside.

It’s not really pleasant. If you cook them slowly, though, the carrots soften and the pancakes are delicious.

Carrot Cake Pancakes
  1. In a large bowl, combine the pancake mix, nuts, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger, stirring with a whisk.
  2. Combine brown sugar, oil, and vanilla in a separate bowl. Add sugar mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
  3. Fold in 2 cups carrot.
  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Spoon batter by ¼-cup mounds onto pan, spreading with a spatula. Cook for 2 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook 1 minute or until bottoms are lightly browned. Be careful not to undercook them or the carrots will be crunchy. That is not so pleasing to the palate.
  5. Repeat procedure with remaining batter.
  6. Serve warm with butter and syrup, with cream cheese syrup, or with honey butter.
