Although the words “pancake” and “spaghetti” don’t often appear in the same sentence, never mind the same recipe, this Tik Tok pancake spaghetti recipe is well worth a read. It has Oreos, cream, vanilla, and more, and is perfect if you’re looking for an unusual dessert recipe. There’s no real spaghetti in there – the word refers to the zigzags or spirals you’ll make with the batter that resemble spaghetti noodles.
Tik Tok pancake spaghetti is a deliciously unusual breakfast option. Rather than making pancakes the old-fashioned way, the pancake batter is piped to look like spaghetti.

Easy: Preparing this is no harder than making regular pancakes. In fact, you might even get the kids to help you unless you’re making it just for yourself, and why not, indeed!

Pipe out the pancake batter: Put the pancake batter in a piping bag, squeeze bottle, or similar, and pipe it into thin strips, spirals, or zigzags in a heated skillet.

Substitutions and Variations
Oreos are delicious in this recipe, but you can use any other cookie. Don’t use anything with large chunks, such as raisin cookies or ones with big chocolate chips. The reason is you won’t be able to squeeze big chunks of chocolate or raisins through the piping nozzle or squeeze bottle. You can also adjust the amount of sugar for a sweeter or less sweet result or even throw in a splash of liquor if you’re preparing pancake batter for the grownups!
What to Serve with Pancakes Spaghetti Style
You will find spaghetti pancakes resemble funnel cakes or squiggle cakes. Since this is great for breakfast, you might like to have some other breakfast foods with it, such as a cup of fruit, some bacon and eggs, or what about a shrimp omelet or savory muffins if you’re cooking brunch for a group and you want to offer a range of options.
How to Store Pancake Spaghetti
Store: Keep any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and eat within five days.
Freeze: These will freeze for up to 6 months. If they won’t fit in a single layer, freeze them in a single layer on a baking sheet, then transfer them into a freezer bag. Alternatively, you can put wax paper between each pancake so they don’t stick together.
Thaw: You don’t need to thaw the pancakes before reheating. Just warm them back up and enjoy them as part of your breakfast cuisine.
Reheat: You can reheat the pancakes in the microwave or oven. You can also use the toaster, although the microwave or the oven tends to give better results.
Pancake Spaghetti with Oreos FAQs
You can get cast iron or stainless steel skillets. Cast iron has the advantage that you can put it in the oven. Some recipes, such as frittatas, are great, started on the stove and finished in the oven. Pancakes can be made in cast iron or a regular large nonstick skillet.
Another option is a griddle that sits over two range burners and has enough room to make bacon, eggs, and pancakes simultaneously. This griddle is great, and you can use the flat side for breakfast pasta pancakes or flip it over and use the ridged side for steaks and chicken.
Piping the pancake mix into pancake spaghetti adds a novel twist to your breakfast. You might like to add other ingredients, such as a splash of brandy or dark rum, or even some pink food colouring if you’re subbing vanilla wafers for the Oreos and want to add a fun colour.
