This is a good recipe for people on the go! You can make it with whole slices of Spam or chopped up Spam. My grandchildren eat it plain, with butter, with syrup, with jams and jellies.... *** We also make waffles with the chopped up Spam! *** We add other ingredients to the batter too... read the recipe to find out more....

How To Make spam cakes !

  • Batter
    Mix together all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together all wet ingredients in a smaller bowl. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients while stirring. Let sit about 5 to 10 minutes while you are preparing the Spam.
  • Peppers, Tomato, Cheese and Spam!  You can add anything to your pancakes... inside, as a topping or on the side!
    You can slice the Spam 1/4 inch thick, and fry it until browned. Place some batter on the griddle then place a slice of spam in the middle.... OR.... Dice up the Spam, Fry it until browned to your liking. Stir this into pancake batter. OR..... Dice, cook, and sprinkle it onto your pancakes before flipping them over.
  • We like to add corn to the pancake batter...
    Sometimes we add drained whole kernel corn to the batter (1 Can about 15 to 16 ounces). OR.... Fresh corn on the cob left over from the night before... just cut it off of the cob and add it into the batter! (About 2 or 3 ears of corn). Sometimes we add diced cheeses and diced veggies.
