DIY Layered “Pancake Cake”

By / Food / February 26th, 2018 / 4

We love brunch just as much as the next person, especially a plate of fluffy pancakes piled mile high.  But what if we thought outside of the box and used our favourite mix to create an epic Layered Pancake Cake. The mix in question is Stonewall Kitchen’s premium buttermilk pancake & waffle batter.  After 25 years in business, they are still one of the most-awarded companies based on taste alone. With a passion for innovative recipes and flavours led them to expand to sauces, condiments, mustards, baking mixes, and more—all made with the same high-quality ingredients and detail.

A tower of (pan)cakes is a great dessert option for your next party; brunch, dinner or otherwise.  Gourmet does not have to complicated and with Stonewall Kitchen mixes, your guests won’t even suspect it’s not scratch-made.  Our step-by-step how-to is below.


1 box Stonewall Kitchen Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix

pastry cream (we like this recipe)

1 cup Stonewall Kitchen Pink Grapefruit Marmalade

1 pink grapefruit, cut into segments

Stonewall Kitchen Cinnamon Apple Syrup

Dark chocolate shavings

Whipped Cream, optional


  1. Prepare 2 batches of the buttermilk pancake mix, as per package instructions (or until 6-8 pancakes are made).
  2. On a cake stand, add one dollop of pastry cream to base. Add one pancake,  layer with pink grapefruit marmalade, top with more pastry cream and grapefruit segments.  Add another pancake and repeat the layering steps until all pancakes are stacked.
  3. To finish the pancake cake, add dark chocolate shavings, drizzle with cinnamon apple syrup and a dollop of whipped cream.
  4. Keep chilled and serve shortly after preparing.

Looking at the small things that make life great and the people who create them.
