These Pancake Cups are so simple, so adorable and so much fun – to stuff AND eat! Check out how to make them and stuffing variations below!
After The Move, the first set of boxes I unpacked were my kitchen ones. Being a foodie, how could I not, eh?! But, what happened afterwards, I wasn’t expecting at all. You see, after the last kitchen box had been unpacked and everything had been put away as neatly as could be, I had this overwhelming urge to NOT use anything in it, until the rest of the house was unpacked! My daughter joked that that would mean we would get to use the kitchen when it was time for us to move again as I was unpacking the rest of the house as such a slow pace…but, I digress…back to the issue at hand…
My daughter would try to get a fork from the cutlery drawer, and I’d usher her to use the plastic forks we had picked up from Walmart. If a plate was needed, I’d suggest a foil boat – only, using even a plastic fork with foil is never a good idea! And, who needs bowls and cups for breakfast or dessert? Especially, when we could whip up edible ones like these here pancake cups!
These pancake cups are cousins of the Fruity Waffle Cups I made over the summer. After the move, when my daughter and I were grocery shopping at Walmart to stock up on utensil-free foods, we spotted Kellogg’s® Eggo® Mickey Mouse Homestyle Waffles (16 ct), Kellogg’s® Eggo® Star Wars Galaxy Adventure Buttermilk Pancakes (20 ct), and Kellogg’s® Eggo® Spider-Man Mixed Berry Marvel (16 ct), in the frozen breakfast section at Walmart. Being fans of Eggo waffles and pancakes AND the Delicious News that Eggo waffles and pancakes now have no artificial flavors and colors from natural sources, in their entire product line, we decided to bring the former two back home with us to keep on hand to enjoy for breakfast or dinner as we unpacked. Noticing the fun patterns on Kellogg’s® Eggo® Mickey Mouse Homestyle Waffles and the 6 different Star Wars designs on the Kellogg’s® Eggo® Star Wars Galaxy Adventure Buttermilk Pancakes, I figured these would make for some fun cups!
Simple Steps to make Pancake Cups:
• Like I did with the Fruity Waffle Cups, I microwaved each pancake for about 20 seconds to thaw them out.
• When they were soft, I coaxed them into a muffin tray that I had sprayed with oil.
• I baked these pancake cups for about 15 to 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
• Then, cooled them and they were ready to fill, top, and enjoy!
Now, I made a fall themed Pumpkin Cream to fill them with. The Pumpkin cream was super easy and just involved whipping up pumpkin puree, coconut whipped cream (or you could use regular whipped cream), vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar or a sweetener of your choice. It’s so easy, you could have your kids help you whip it up and spoon into these cups!
But, what you choose to fill these pancake cups with is entirely upto you! You could scramble up some eggs and bacon and toss them in these pancake cups for breakfast; or, you could bake some breaded chunks of chicken and toss them into these pancake cups for dinner; or, you could fill these fun pancake cups up with ice cream for dessert and have an ice cream party! Whatever you chose to fill these cups with, it’s going to be a fun experience for you and your family, just like it enjoying these were for my daughter and I!
