Picture of The Perfectly cooked 1 1/2" x 6" Pancake Cake
Lets say you have a rice cooker/steamer and you don't mind waiting a couple of hours for a big breakfast. What do you do? Well, I'll show you how to make a delicious pancake without using a stove top and with minimal materials.

You'll need a rice cooker, a metal bowl, 1 chopstick, a towel, some pancake batter, oil, and 2 cups of water (for boiling/heating the bowl).

Currently 50 minutes into the process of making my own...something tells me that mine won't end as well as yours :P

I'd advise that you do some sit-ups while you wait. The cake is enough for 2 meals. Good luck cooking and eating this monster! :)

Ahaha 2 hours in and I'm ready to call it quits xD Guess I just don't have the magic touch you do :P Mine just turned out to be a giant spongy mess xD Great instructible though!
Oh man, this is freaking awesome. I am making these for myself and to impress my dates for breakfast. So freaking excited.
WOW! I used the think that my (stove cooked) 1/2 inch pancakes were huge!

so... its a cake.... cuz i kinda eliminated the "pan" and it looks a lot more like a cake than a flapjack... lol... but i like it all the same. more of a waffle fan tho.

hmm...this has got me wondering. What if you did it in a pressure cooker, like http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-Bread-Anywhere%3a-%22Baking%22-bread-in-a-pressure-/? What if you were to separate the eggs used in the pancake batter and whip the whites until fluffy, then fold them back in? Would the pancake rise even more?

Did you really cook that pancake in a metal dog bowl? It sure looks like one...
Harvey_ (author)  conuremom6 years ago
What kind of sick, irresponsible dog owner would let their pet(s) eat out of a small and light metal bowl... (unless their pets don't like chewing on anything...)

Anyways, its not a dog bowl. Its a metal pot meant for steaming (human) food. It came with the steamer.
Hey, I was just sayin' what it looked like to me! Lighten up!
Harvey_ (author)  conuremom6 years ago
Ya I know. But still, it did sound a bit insulting... ;) Anyways, no harm done.

Wow, nice! Maybe some restaurant will take a tip from this, and buy a bunch of rice cookers to start serving these! :)
Harvey_ (author)  jnixon6 years ago
Thanks. But I highly doubt that any restaurant will use my recipe. As I stated, it takes 1 1/2 - 2 hours just to make one. They would need at least ten rice cookers cooking at once. :)
I think this could probably be done in the oven with a round casserole dish with a lid. You would probably have to start baking it with the lid on and then take it off so that it would brown some. If done in the oven you could make a whole bunch at once. With the giant sausage patty and a pan full of scrambled eggs and cheese, this could be a real attraction at a restaurant, the largest breakfast sandwich!!! It could even be one of those food challenge type attractions, if you eat the entire thing yourself you get it for free and get your name up on the wall. Oh the possibilities are endless. Great Idea!!!!

Interesting...I like the baking idea. Yes, it would allow for more to be cooked in faster amount of time. Oh yes! I've eaten 1 1/2 of these pancakes and I tell you. My stomach was about to explode! This would definitely be a worthy challenge to eat 1 pancake sandwich with the side dishes!
giant hamburger bun!

Nat, I like where you're going with this! Stay tuned for my next big project; a gigantic pancake hamburger/sandwitch.
OH MY GHOD!!! The awesomeness, make the patty from pork breakfast sausage and smother the whole thing in maple syrup and butter!!!!

Oh yes! Sounds heart stoppingly delicious indeed!

COOOOOL!! How many standard pancakes would you say this behemoth contains?
Harvey_ (author)  shooby6 years ago
About 2 or 3. Maybe more. It all depends on the desired thickness/thiness and the diameter.
