My recent Cake Pop addiction took on a whole new level this morning at breakfast. Two weeks ago when I discovered the Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker I had no idea I was going to fall in love with this little machine so deeply. I am not sure a day has gone by that I haven't either made cake pops, or wish I was! It is just so fun to make a little creation in just four minutes. I am hooked.
While talking about it on Facebook, my friend Jonee had the idea of making corn bread balls to use with chili. It started a conversation about what ELSE I could make in my little Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker... biscuits, dinner rolls.. and this morning it hit me - PANCAKES!
So I did what I do with every good idea... I posted to Facebook.
Between the threats of calling Dr Drew and offering support in my 12 Step Program, one dear friend said I could crumble up sausage in the mix and make it a sausage pancake pop! Well, I didnt have any sausage (adding it to next weeks grocery list now) but I DID have bacon!
I fried up the bacon extra crispy first and let it cool. I crumbled them up into little pieces and set aside. Then I mixed the pancake mix to the consistency of cake mix... not all watery like most pancake mixes are. My first batch I filled the Cake Pop Maker about ⅓ full - since I wasnt sure just how high a pancake would "rise"... then I sprinkled my crumbled bacon on top.
I let them cook for four minutes - just like with cake batter - but they weren't quite finished (so I thought) so I left them in a bit longer. What I discovered though was that they were finished - they just had not risen all the way to the top, so they looked uncooked. They were still yummy though - I ate this batch!
The next batch I did exactly like I was using cake batter - I filled the cups half full, sprinkled in the bacon on a couple of them, and waited for four minutes... what we came out with was pure perfection:
I mixed about a cup and a half of mix, and used only about 3 strips of bacon, and it made 2 dozen Pancake Cake Pops - the perfect amount for one breakfast for three!
I can totally see us getting even more use out of our Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker with this discovery! The Tween has learned how to safely use this, and has already asked if she can make Pancake Cake Pops for breakfast when school starts. We added just a touch of syrup to the Pancake Cake Balls and voila... a fantastic breakfast in just a few minutes - I even got the Toddler to eat bacon!! Needless to say, she absolutely loved them!

Those look soooooo good; I'm sitting here eating yogurt & you've got bacon pops! Oops,they're gone now!
What a great idea. I bought the Babycakes Cupcake Maker the other day. I wanted the cake pop maker but it wasn't available at Kohls. It is still on my want list though.
leah- diaries of a domestic goddess says
ok. seriously...I NEED one of these machines!
Yum - this is such a creative idea! Babycakes needs to be paying you for all the reviews you're doing for them!
Yum! Genius! I stumbled this!
Amy @ GrinningCheektoCheek says
Mmmm!! That's my kind of breakfast!!
The only problem of those are, that I'd have a hard time knowing when to stop!!
I wonder if you do a half layer, let it cook for half the time, then put some syrup inside and then the top layer... oohhhhh!!
Lisa @ Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy says
you could make those into the pancake puppies like at Denny's by leaving out the bacon but rolling them in cinnamon and sugar after they cooked.
This looks SO YUMMY! I can't wait for mine to arrive!!
Jennifer @ Mom Spotted says

My husband searched all over San Antonio to find me one of these and now I am sitting here typing in all kinds of ideas to see if others have tried it or have recipes to do exactly what I am thinking. Thank you for sharing this as I have 3 boys that absolutely love pancakes and donut holes. Pancake holes? (laughing) We are going to have fun fun fun!!!
I have cooked all KINDS of things in mine! My girls love the "corn dog pops" - and I love that I can put just a few in a ziplock in the freezer for a quick anytime snack 🙂 Ohhh and the cinnamon rolls! Four minutes to yumminess! HA!
My daughter and I made these for fathers Day this morning and they were a hit! So fun to be able to make a few varieties, some with bacon, some with fruit etc...We used bisquick and added only 1 cup of milk instead of two. Yum!
Oh I havent tried fruit!! How did that go? Did you use fresh fruit? Yum!! I can imagine apple and cinnamon... oh wow I may have to try that tomorrow! HA!
