Fancy some Do-It-Yourself pancakes without the hassle of preparing the ingredients or dread the post-cooking cleaning chore? Head down to Slappy Cakes – a newly opened Oregon-originated pancake house, brought in by the folks at TungLok.

Slappy Cakes

Slappy Cakes goes by a DIY concept, where each table is fitted with a griddle and diners are allowed to cook their own pancakes. There are 5 different batter flavours, including buttermilk, peanut butter, zucchini, whole grain and chocolate. The batter is freshly made everyday and comes in a squeeze bottle ($8 per bottle), which makes around 5-8 pancakes, depending on the size of the pancakes. Besides the batter, you can also customize the pancakes from a range of “fixings” and “toppings”:

Fixings (ranged from $1.50 to $3):
Sweet – blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, sea coconut, dried pineapple, banana, shredded coconut, toasted almonds, hazelnuts, pecan nuts and granola
Savoury – brie, blue cheese, pork sausage, cheddar cheese, chopped scallions, crispy bacon, honey ham and roasted mushrooms

Toppings (ranged from $1.50 to $3):
100% maple syrup, lavender honey, homemade chocolate hazelnut spread, coconut peanut butter, greek yoghurt, mango jam, pineapple jam, raspberry jam, lemon curd and whipped cream

There are absolutely no limitations nor constraints to the combinations of batters, fixings and toppings. That’s the beauty of DIY – where you get to customize and create your very own pancake. For us, we chose a peanut butter batter with cheddar cheese, pork sausage and the homemade chocolate hazelnut spread. With the griddle warmed up, it was time for some DIY action.

Squeezing out the batter

The batter comes in a easy to squeeze plastic bottle, which allows both adults and kids to conveniently dispense the batter onto the griddle in whatever shape and size.

At the same time, you can also add in the fixings or toppings into the pancake during the cooking process. We added the cheddar cheese to allow it to melt into the pancake and also additional black pepper for seasoning. Once little bubbling holes start to appear in the pancake, flipping to the other side is a breeze as the griddle has a non-stick coating. Once both sides turned to a beautiful shade of golden brown, it is time to eat!

Pancakes!

Pancakes!

Apart from the DIY fun, the pancakes turned out pretty decent too! The cooking process released a peanut butter fragrance into the air. We could also adequately control the texture and taste of our pancakes! Though the peanut butter aroma was quite evident, the taste was not that strong. But our pancakes did turn out soft, light and fluffy! No difference from any professional chef! We could probably do with a little more cheese for that extra goodness, but the addition of black pepper was a great choice as it enhanced the taste of the pancakes. The homemade chocolate hazelnut spread, after being left on the heat for a while, turned into a viscous, chocolately goodness.

Great concept and great food.
