Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs

Pancake Mix-In

  • 4 ounces cubed ham - Smithfield Anytime Favorites Cubed Ham, about 1 cup


  1. Begin preheating a nonstick pan over medium low heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and whisk together.
  3. In another mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients and whisk them.
  4. Pour the mixture of wet ingredients into the mixture of dry ingredients and whisk until combined.

  5. If batter is too thick to pour, add milk a tablespoon at a time until a pourable consistency is reached.
  6. Scoop up 1/4 cup of pancake batter and pour it in the pan.  Repeat, adding a few more mini pancakes to the pan.  Then add three pieces of cubed ham on the batter of each pancake, pressing in lightly.

  7. Cook until there are many bubbles on the surface of the batter, and the edges become firm (about 60 to 90 seconds). Flip the pancake and cook for another 30 to 60 seconds, then remove to a plate.

  8. Repeat until batter is used up. Stack all the cooked pancakes together to keep them warm, or serve immediately as they come out of the pan.
