When I first spotted Analon’s Silver Dollar Pancake Pan at IFBC 2013 Seattle, I knew my son Kazden would be thrilled to flip flap-jacks on such a cool device. The company offered to send us a pan if we reviewed it in a blog post. Too excited to sleep-in on a Saturday, Kazden was up early, pan in hand, ready to create a new and exciting pancake for this special pan.

Following my basic pancake batter, we added an extra egg (this makes the pancakes more cake like with added protein and Kazden just likes to crack eggs). Kazden wanted two flavors so we divided the dough adding chocolate to one and vanilla to the other.
Chocolate & Vanilla Silver Dollar Pancakes
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup milk (any type)
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon sugar or honey
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour or gluten-free baking mix
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
In a medium bowl, mix eggs, milk, water, oil, sugar and salt. In a small bowl mix flour and baking powder. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until no lumps remain. Do not over mix. Pour about 1/2 of the batter into the small bowl. Add 1/2 tablespoon vanilla to one bowl of batter and 2 tablespoons melted butter and 2 tablespoons cocoa powder to the other bowl of batter. Add more water to batter to reach desired consistency, thinner batter=thinner pancakes. Preheat pan on medium-high heat. Pour 1 tablespoon of better on to each pancake indentation. Turn heat to medium. Once bubbles appear in pancake, flip and cook on the other side 10-20 seconds. Serve warm with desired toppings. We like Greek yogurt mixed with a bit of maple syrup and thinned with milk as a whip-cream substitute and a few shakes of powdered sugar and/or cocoa powder.
Analon Pan Review: We don’t cook on much non-stick cookware but we like it for pancakes. Kazden had great success with the ease of flipping pancakes. The even heat this pan conducted assured there were no hot spots or overdone pancakes. Kazden liked the template because it helped regulate batter quantities and there was no worry of the pancakes running together. There is no clean-up as the pan only needs to be wiped down with a wet cloth. This pan sits on a single burner and is perfect for making 7 pancakes at a time. Kazden and I give Analon’s Silver Dollar Pancake Pan a thumbs up!
