Coffee Maker Pancakes

The bottom of your coffee maker can do more than just keep your coffee hot — it can make pancakes!


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup


  1. Combine the milk and egg in a bowl. Mix in the dry ingredients to form the batter.
  2. Turn on the coffee machine. Spray the hot plate with cooking spray. Add a small amount of the batter.
  3. When the pancake starts to show bubbles, flip it and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat this for as many pancakes as you want.
  4. Turn the coffee machine off. Add the maple syrup to the water container. Turn the coffee on so that the syrup moves through the percolating system and gets hot.
  5. Put the pancakes under the dripping mechanism and using a knife, press it down to release the warm syrup.
