Egg Yolk Stuffed Pancakes


Get ready for an awesome breakfast twist that combines fluffy pancakes with a cool surprise inside! Say hello to this creative Egg Yolk Stuffed Pancake recipe.


  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1012 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons butter for frying


  1. Combine the self-rising flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, melted butter and milk until well combined.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Combine without over mixing. 
  4. Set aside to rest for at least 10 minutes.
  5. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and add the butter. Allow the butter to melt and start to bubble.
  6. Spray the inside of a large biscuit cutter with non-stick spray. Place in the pan.
  7. Pour a small amount of pancake batter into the cutter.
  8. Drop two egg yolks into the center of the batter, followed by more batter to cover the yolks.
  9. Allow the pancake to set for a minute or two without disturbing it.
  10. Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook for another minute.
  11. Add a tablespoon of water to the pan and cover again, allowing the steam to cook the pancake and create bubbles.
  12. Once bubbles form on the surface, carefully remove the lid and gently flip the pancake.
  13. Cook for another minute to brown the other side.
  14. Plate the Egg Yolk Stuffed Pancakes. Add a touch of butter.
  15. Pour on warm maple syrup. Serve with sausage or bacon, and hashbrowns.
  16. ENJOY!

  • Add the egg yolks to a small bowl for ease.
  • Large to jumbo-sized eggs work best in this recipe.
  • You can use a smaller sized biscuit cutter. If so, drop only one egg yolk into the batter.
  • Feel free to experiment using the entire egg (I have not tried this, so let me know if you do!)
  • Use a non-stick pan with a flat surface for cooking the pancake.
  • Maintain medium heat for even pancake and egg cooking.
  • Apply non-stick spray to the biscuit cutter to prevent sticking.
  • Drop yolks gently into the pancake batter.
  • Let the batter set before adding water.
  • Add water to the pan to create steam for cooking.
  • Cover with a lid when flipping the pancake.
