Doughnut Pancake with Maple Glaze

I am not really a pancake person, I can eat them but they aren't my favorite breakfast food.  I think that it is because I am the oldest of nine and every Saturday we would make pancakes for lunch. Being the oldest, I usually made them, so after making multiple batches of the dough and frying pancakes for what seemed like hours, I could barely eat any.
Not too long ago I found this recipe for Maple Glaze Doughnut Pancake from French Press.  I  LOVE doughnuts... they are probably one of my favorite foods.  I also love the Tim Horton's Maple Glazed Doughnuts, something that I can't get very often anymore.  So when I saw this recipe, I instantly started drooling and thinking about Tim Horton's and I had to try them.  These pancakes were downright delicious, I loved them. I just wish my husband would have the same liking as me... He was ok with them but I could tell that he wasn't quite impressed as I was.  Saying that I will still make these every once in awhile.

Doughnut Pancakes with Maple Glaze
For the pancakes:
1 cup flour
1 egg
3/4 -1 cup milk ( I used only 3/4 cup, they made the pancakes thicker)
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 - 1/2 tsp nutmeg ( I used 1/2 tsp)
1/4 tsp ginger

Mix dry ingredients together in bowl.  In separate bowl whisk together milk, egg, butter and pour over dry ingredients.  Whisk all ingredients until everything is combined.  Preheat griddle to 350 degrees or I used a heated pan on the stove.  Grease griddle or pan with either butter or cooking spray.  Place batter in  pastry bag or ziploc bag with corner snipped off and squeeze batter out in a circle leaving a hole in the middle.

Flip pancakes when underside looks brown and cook other side.  Keep warm in preheated 200 degree oven until all pancakes are done and glaze is made.  I don't have a very big frying pan so I need to cook one at a time.  I also made a few doughnut holes with the leftover batter.

1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp melted butter
2 tbsp milk or cream
1 tsp maple syrup - I used slightly more
1/4 tsp nutmeg 

Mix all ingredients together and drizzle over a  stack of pancakes.

I tried to make a heart shaped pancake.

We ate ours with strawberries... Enjoy!

  1. Looks like a sweet treat for breakfast!

  2. Hi Marly, we like our lemon curd on toast instead of jam/jelly. Lemon curd is sometimes also called lemon honey. Have a great week!

  4. Oh my goodness, you have done it again! This is probably a winner...I have to make it for breakfast. Do you have it pinned on Pinterest?

    1. Thanks... I really like these and I am not a pancake eater. I don't have them pinned yet will do it now.

  5. I like doughnuts too, but the deep frying usually doesn't agree with me. I am thinking that these use much less fat and might be a great substitute. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday!

    1. they taste and smell like doughnuts without the frying :) and the glaze makes them oh! so good.

  6. That looks fabulous!! I am certain my 2 boys would be in love with these!!

    1. Thanks Mimi... I hope you like them if you make them.

  7. These simply look super delicious!!

  8. I just sprinkled this post at all my favorite spots, Facebook, pinterest and Twitter as one of my Five Faves:) Thank you for sharing at Freedom Fridays!

  9. Your doughnut pancakes look delicious Marlys! Pinned and hope to see you on Saturday!
