Thee are so many varieties of recipes you could turn out with a pack of pancake mix. If you find yourself left with a box of pancake mix leftover after preparing pancakes for your kids and they dont want any more pancakes, dont despair.
There are such fabulous varieties of cakes you could bake quickly with simple ingredients.For those dreading to bake and not ready to try out measuring ingredients I strongly recommend buying pancake mix boxes which are multipurpose.
I have prepared Cranberry chocolate pancake mix cake.
- 1 cup pancake flour
- 1/2 cup sugar or less if you prefer a mildly sweet cake
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup yogurt or 1 egg if you opt
- 3tbsp melted butter/oil....I used oil instead of butter
- 1/3 cup of dried cranberries or your choice of berries,.2 tbsp of melted chocolate.
Mix all the ingredients carefully and pour cake batter into an 8 inch square or round cake pan.
Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until done.Check for doneness by inserting a skewer.
It should come clean. after the cake cools down you can use the melted chocolate to glaze the top.
This is a basic cake recipe made using pancake mix. As the mix comes with rising agents there is no need to add them again.
You can try out variations by making coffee cake,cake with streusel topping,crumb cake etc.
Do not mix the cake batter too much.
