Breakfast is way more fun in miniature form, especially when buttery, tasty silver dollar pancakes are on the menu.

Silver Dollar Pancakes

Can someone explain to me why food is more fun when it is in miniature form? Silver Dollar Pancakes are the epitome of fun as my boys like to see who can stack them higher or create the best pyramid. Have you seen a pancake castle? My boys are pros!

Besides, it sounds so much more exciting when you say you ate 10 or even 20 pancakes for breakfast. I’ve seen it happen. Silver Dollar Pancakes or mini Pancakes get their name from their size. They are about 2-3 inches in diameter or about the size of an American silver dollar.

Pancakes of all kinds are great not only for breakfast but lunch and dinner as well. Mini pancakes in a bag make for a great snack for kids to take to school or enjoy in the car on a busy morning.

At our house, we like a buttery, fluffy pancake. To achieve the fluffiest pancake you have to let the batter rest after mixing and before pouring it onto the griddle.

Letting the batter rest for 5 minutes or so allows the baking soda to begin working. When your batter is full of bubbles you know it is ready for the griddle.

Mini pancakes cook rather quickly. With so many on the griddle, the first ones you pour are usually about ready to flip by the time you get the griddle filled.

Mini Pancakes

These are some of my favorite tools for making mini pancakes and all pancakes for that matter. We tend to make them quite regularly.

If you make pancakes often, nothing beats a great electric griddle for streamlining the cooking process. A few years ago, when my 15-year-old griddle finally died, I tested every single griddle I could get my hands on. When I finally tried this extra large electric griddle, I knew I’d found THE ONE. It’s a little on the spendy side, but I am telling you now, it beats all the others hands-down.

This nylon flexible turner is a pancake-making must-have, as is a dough whisk. If you aren’t familiar with the awesomeness that is a dough whisk for pancakes and waffles, you are missing out. It’s a crazy-looking tool, but it stirs the batter just enough without overmixing it.

I’ve tried pretty much all of the nifty pancake-pouring gadgets out there, and I stand by a good old measuring cup as the easiest way to make pancakes. I use the ¼ or ⅓ cup sizes for most pancake making – this set that I use every day will allow you to improvise for all kinds of sizes.

When making standard-size 4-inch pancakes, the large scoop in this set of cookie scoops is my favorite way to dispense the batter. The medium scoop works perfectly for smaller-sized pancakes.

Pancake and Waffle Recipes

Pancakes and waffles, sweet or savory are regularly on our table. Bonus, the freezer is filled with extras for those busy mornings.

Fluffy pancakes are possible even when they’re made a little bit healthier with whole wheat flour and oatmeal! You’re going to love this twist on the classic pancake breakfast.

2 Ingredient Pancakes have been showing up all over the internet lately. Low-carb pancakes that are easy to make, and tasty as can be, we’ve been making these 2 Ingredient Cream Cheese Pancakes for years.

Hash Brown Waffles are hot, crispy potato perfection and there is absolutely no way you can eat just one, they are so good.

These are light airy pancakes with a unique taste. Often called Dutch baby pancakes, these are a real treat and a fun breakfast for a lazy weekend.
