I first encountered these quirky little cakes on the eclectic (and ridiculously extensive) menu at Shopsin’s in the Essex Street Market on Mahattan’s Lower East Side. I thought they were a little off-beat but I liked the idea.

Even so, I had no desire to make them at home.

That is until I came across them in a magazine. I was baffled to see them again: Macaroni and Cheese Pancakes.

So I went for it. Why not? I’m a fan of sweet and savory. I’m a big fan of pasta. And cheese. And pancakes.

I know it seems strange. But you must try these pancakes at least once. They are different and just plain tasty. And they are fun. We got a big kick out of preparing, eating and talking about them.. They just taste good

Macaroni and Cheese Pancakes

Ingredients:
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. coarse salt
  • 1⅓ cup buttermilk (*Note: the original recipe calls for 2⅓ cups buttermilk, which I felt was a little heavy. Here, I’m cutting it down with whole milk for a milder taste. But feel free to use all buttermilk and no whole milk!)
  • 1½ cups grated cheddar
  • Maple syrup and hot sauce for serving
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2½ cups cooked macaroni, preferably elbows or small shells, drained and cooled



Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, whist the dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milks, eggs and butter. Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined (the batter will be slightly lumpy) . Fold in the macaroni and cheddar.
  3. Pre-heat and lightly grease a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Scoop batter onto the griddle to make pancakes. Cook until undersides are golden brown and slightly stiff, about 5 minutes.
  4. Flip and cook until second side is golden brown.
  5. Repeat with remaining batter and serve warm with syrup and hot sauce (if desired).
