These sweet pancakes look just like a hamburger – and kids absolutely love them.
This pancake burger isn’t actually a burger at all. It’s a set of thick, sweet pancakes stacked with gooey, soft, double-chocolate chip cookies, and decorated to look like meat patties in a sesame seed bap. We love the trickery of it. They make a great Pancake Day option but there’s no need to save them up for then. Serve them as a weekend treat or at birthday parties. You can even make them up in miniature to serve like mini slider canapés. We’ve uses the same basic batter as our classic pancake recipe, except it uses self-raising flour and buttermilk instead of milk, so you get a fluffy, thick result, just like a burger bun.
If your pancakes come out too thin, add a little more flour to the batter to make it a thicker paste that won't spread so far. If they aren't round enough to look like burger buns you can trim the edges with scissors like we did in the picture.
