In fact, there are many types of healthy pies designed primarily for children, which have been given a sweet name: “cheese pools.”
A classic pancake recipe usually involves mixing flour with eggs, sugar and milk to make a uniform batter that is fried in a skillet with a little butter or oil.

You can add ground or chopped fruit, maple, peanut butter, chocolate chips, and more to the mixture. For gluten-free pancakes, you can choose almond flour, oatmeal, or another alternative flour.
Chocolate cake in a frying pan
When it comes to desserts, chocolate cake is a safe bet. It’s great with a hot drink or a classic birthday cake, and if you make it in a skillet, it’ll upgrade and get a deep taste and delicious crunchy texture. And let’s not talk about saving on dirty dishes!

After about 5 minutes, flip the cake over a plate and return it to the pan for another 5 minutes. And that’s it, our cake is ready! You can drizzle it with chocolate sauce, whipped cream or cream according to your personal taste. If you have a nice pan, you can serve the cake without taking it out – right from the stove to the table, with the sweet aroma that accompanies you all the way.
