Pecan Pie Pancakes

Servings 3 -4


  • For the topping:
  • 3 TBS butter
  • 2 TBS brown sugar
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon mild flavor molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • For the pancakes:
  • 1 ½ cups cake flour
  • 1 ¼ TBS baking powder
  • 2 TBS brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 whole large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoon butter melted
  • Oil
  • Chopped pecans


  • For the topping:
  • Melt the butter and brown sugar together in a small saucepan over medium heat. When the sugar melts, add the pecans and reduce the heat to low. Cook 10 minutes to bring out the nutty flavor. Add the corn syrup, molasses, vanilla, and salt. Stir well and heat through. You may keep it warm over very low heat until ready to serve or remove from the heat and re-heat just before serving. This topping becomes stiff when it cools so it will definitely need to be heated to pour.
  • For the pancakes:
  • In a small bowl mix the cake flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk to mix, then set aside. In another bowl add the milk, egg, and vanilla and whisk lightly. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and whisk just to mix. Add the melted butter and whisk it in. The batter should still be lumpy. If it is too thick, add a little more milk to thin it down.
  • Heat a griddle or skillet to medium heat. Brush with vegetable oil. Place chopped pecans in a small pancake-sized sized circle. Just use a few and scatter them randomly leaving spaces between. Pour a small circle of batter into the center of the pecans. Allow the batter to flow around the pecans. When bubbles form on top and being to pop, use a spatula to flip the pancakes over. Cook on the opposite side until light golden brown and cooked through.
  • You can keep them warm in a 250 degree oven until they are all done ar serve them as they come off the griddle. Top with a pat of butter and the warm topping.
