Kodiak Cakes...Pancakes

I hope all you wonderful Moms had a lovely Mother's Day! These delicious pancakes were not for Mother's Day; I made them previously, last week, to be exact! A Canadian friend suggested this unusual, super moist, totally natural ingredients...no need to add eggs, or milk, so easy, that I splurged a little, adding fresh strawberries to top it off, and a little decoration with Ready Whip whipped cream...the best pancakes I've ever had from a box mix!
I never even knew about these amazing pancakes...or 'Flapjacks' as they call them, until I was introduced to it, and can only find them at Target! It's been around for a long time, but there is a 'success story' behind it. If any of you have watched Shark Tank...which I sometimes have watched, but missed this one...here's the story behind it!

Kodiak Cakes - Pancake and Waffle Mix

Kodiak Cakes on Shark Tank

Pancake and Waffle Mix - Episode 528 - 4/4/2014

Pancake and Waffle mix seen 4/4/2014 in Episode 528 The more I learn about these Kodiak Cake's, the more I'm convinced this business is destined to become a Super Successful Shark Tank Product. First off you need a superior and healthier product to compete in the multi-billion dollar Pancake and Waffle Mix Industry.  Next you'll need a razor-sharp marketing edge that absolutely makes your product stand out above-and-beyond any competition. Also, as with all Successful Shark Tank products, it helps to have a great story how you're business first began, and yes, the Kodiak Cake's also has a very interesting story indeed.

Original Kodiak Cakes
Flapjack and Waffle Mix
I first started writing this article (I had it half way done) with the assumption Kodiak Cake's first began by then 8 year old Joel Clark, who was selling this now famous flapjack and waffles mixes door-to-door out of his wagon. Although part of the story is true, it was his Mom who first began selling the Kodiak Pancake Mixes under the Baker Mills business name, the last names of both her Mom and Grandmother. The actual "Whole Wheat Hot Cake's" recipe was developed by Wallace Christofferson, the Family's Grandpa who perfected the now famous breakfast product over many years of trial and error. It looks like both Brother's Jon and Tim Clark, have also played vital role's in making the Kodiak Cake's a success.

The best pancakes...ever! I highly recommend it!

Make sure to add Real Maple Syrup on top...nothing but, the BEST!

Of course, if you would like to make your pancakes from 'scratch'...I recommend
Mark Bittman's Perfect Pancakes  simple and amazing recipe...(from a previous post of mine)




My choice was the Whole Wheat Oat, and Honey brand...just add;

1 cup of mix...







and add 1 cup of plain water. With a wire whisk, lightly whisk it till lumps disappear, and smooth.

In a preheated large cast iron skillet, heavy skillet, or a large griddle...
for small pancakes which yields about 6;
scoop with a 1/3 measuring spoon, and flip over when it starts to bubble!



For larger pancakes; you can scoop with 1/2 measuring cup which makes about 3 or 4.

You can double or triple the recipe...no eggs or milk required to add!
