It’s a few days too late for Pancake Day, but since I’m willing to make pancakes for breakfast just about any day of the year, Nordicware’s Waffle Pancake Pan is still worth a mention. This pan is made of heavy cast aluminum and is molded to have seven pancake-sized impressions in its surface. It works in basically the same way that an aebleskiver pan does: batter is poured into each one of the depressions, which embeds waffle marks into the pancake batter poured into it, and then it is flipped over to do the same to the other side.
The resulting pancakes are very cute and the waffle marks are great for catching syrup and butter, holding all that extra flavor on the pancakes. They’re not going to replace regular waffles, but it is a little bit easier to pull this out in the morning and make a stack of waffle-pancakes than it is to get out the waffle iron and have to clean it up later.
