With this pancake cereal trend blowing up everywhere, pancake mixes are flying off shelves. If you happen to be near a Trader Joe's, however, you might be lucky enough to spot something pretty unique in the offerings of breakfast cake batter.
A crazy cool new variation of pancake mix was just spotted at Trader Joe's: Ube Mochi Pancake and Waffle Mix.
Spotted by Trader Joe's aficionado with the apt handle @TraderJoesAficionado, this brand new item draws inspiration from the popular purple yams known as ube most prominently used in Filipino desserts. Ube flour is combined with rice flour to create an extra chewy texture within these pancakes. Entirely gluten free, all you really need is flour, eggs, and butter.
Let's be honest, there's no way I'd make minis of these. I'd want to try fat stacks of them on my first go. Looks and sounds AMAZING.
You can find this Ube Mochi Pancake and Waffle mix at participating Trader Joe's locations throughout the U.S.
