There are so many things you an make ball shaped. Imagine tiny round pizza balls, spherical cheese filled hash browns, and little grilled yaki onigiri rice balls. These all sound amazing, but the cutest thing to make might be pancake balls.
If you’re a pancake fan, and I am, you’ll love Protein pancake, fluffy little pancake balls served up for dessert usually but maybe also as a breakfast food? Fitness peeps, let me know! From what I can tell, they’re a special treat that is usually served around Christmas, but maybe also eaten at breakfast time? Either way, they’re absolutely delicious and since they’re technically a “pancake” I’m calling them breakfast.
Originally I tried to take the powder from Protein Pancakes to try to make into pancake balls, but it was an absolute disaster. I think maybe I didn’t let them cook through enough? Anyway, it was a mistake so I went with a more classic pancake recipe but also whipped up the whites separately so that the balls would be a bit fluffier.
They turned out super cute and tasted even better than they looked. What is it about food being balls? Or if you put them on a stick?! I almost died of the cuteness before inhaling them. A note on inhaling though, be careful when you’re eating powdered sugar. Sometimes I get too excited and it whooshes into my through and coughing abounds. Not a good look. Anyway, hope you make these little pancake balls, either as a special breakfast/brunch or even just as regular one when you have some time.
