Pre-heat pancake griddle or stovetop pan.
Spray griddle with non-stick spray.
The pan is hot enough when a drop of water breaks into several smaller balls which ‘dance’ around the pan.
Pour a small amount of batter (approx 1/4 cup) onto griddle, leave several inches of space in-between each Pack Cake
When bubbles appear on surface and begin to break, turn over and cook the other side.
When the Pack Cakes are finished, let them cool on a plate until they are room temperature.
Store Pack cakes in refrigerator or freezer in a ziplock bag or container until you're ready to hit the trail.
