Carrot Cake Pancakes are dense and delicious pancakes that are packed with carrots, raisins, nuts, and spices. They can be made ahead and kept in the freezer for the mornings when you do not have much time.

In our home, we make a homemade pancake mix to have on hand and then just add a few ingredients to each batch to make them unique and tasty (so no one gets bored!)

How to Make Carrot Cake Pancakes

To get started, gather all of your ingredients and shred the carrots.

In a decent size mixing bowl combine two cups of homemade pancake mix, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and brown sugar, stirring to blend.

Add egg, water, and oil. Then add remaining ingredients, stirring just enough to incorporate all the ingredients together.

The key to tender pancakes is to fold the ingredients together, but don’t overmix.

Heat the griddle or skillet over medium heat, add a good dollop of butter, and then allow it to melt. The pancake batter should be poured onto the hot griddle in one place.

If you pour the batter in 1 spot, the pancakes will spread evenly. Avoid pouring the batter in circular motions, as this will result in uneven spots on a pancake, which will not cook equally.

Cook until bubbles appear and then flip. If you want tender pancakes, do not turn them more than once. You do not want them to become tough by flipping them more than once.

If you plan to use a store-bought pancake mix, such as jiffy mix, see the instructions on the package as to how much liquid is needed before adding Cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, carrots, raisins, and nuts.

  1. 5 stars
    Carrot cake pancakes are the perfect way to enjoy your favorite dessert for breakfast. I tried this recipe and loved it because it is quick and easy to make, and the pancakes are moist and flavorful. The key to making these pancakes is to use grated carrots, which add natural sweetness and moisture to the batter.

    In addition, I like to add a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter for an extra hint of flavor. These pancakes are best served with a dollop of cream cheese frosting, but they are also delicious with simply a dusting of powdered sugar. Whether you are serving them for breakfast or dessert, these Carrot Cake Pancakes are sure to be a hit!
