Prep: 20 min
Total Time: 35 min
Yield: 14 pancakes



  • Place the pancake mix in a large mixing bowl and add milk, eggs, butter and brown sugar. Whisk until just combined. Let stand at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat and place a heaping tablespoon of batter onto the griddle, spreading it slightly with the back of the spoon. Place a tablespoon of filling into the center of the pancake and top with an additional tablespoon of batter, covering the filling. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, flip and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Repeat steps with remaining batter and fillings until gone. Serve immediately. Leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
