We recently held our first Dog House of Pancakes event at our brick and mortar location in Houston. There were lots of happy pups who left with full bellies and dog parents who just had to have our recipe for doggy pancakes!
We started with the PuppyCakes LLC Banana Cake Wheat Mix, a large egg, a ¼ cup of cooking oil, and a 1 ½ cup of water.
Mix the ingredients together, adjusting how much water you add until a thin consistency is reached. This batter has more water added to it to make evenly thin pancakes for your pup. When your batter is ready, heat a pan over medium-high. Grease the pan lightly with cooking oil or salt-free butter - moderation is key with these fattier ingredients. Alternately, you can use a nonstick skillet for your pancakes.
When pan is hot, pour a tablespoonful onto the pan. Batter should self level and spread out in a round shape if correct consistency. Fill the pan with as many spoonfuls of batter as possible, without allowing them to touch. When batter begins to bubble at the center, flip pancake over to cook thoroughly. Pancakes should take 1 to 2 minutes to cook, depending on thickness and temperature. When finished, remove from heat, and plate.
It’s easy to dress these doggy pancakes up with some toppings. With the yogurt icing mix, prepare as usual and use with fruit, such as berries, to top your doggy pancakes. We like using the Plato Pet Thinkers as the ‘sausage’ part of breakfast. Et voila! You’re done!
We recommend feeding only 1 or 2 pancakes a day, depending on your pooch’s size. Remember to reduce your pup’s usual meal to accommodate these extra calories! Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week. One box mix should yield about 12 4-inch pancakes. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get cooking for your pups!
