Put the blended mixture in a bowl, and sift in the pancake mix. Fold it in with a spatula.
Pour the mixture into a mould until about 80% full. Cover it loosely with plastic wrap, leaving a gap between the mixture and plastic, and microwave on high for 1 minute.
Instead of pancake mix, you can use 150 g of cake flour and 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder. See Recipe ID: 575243.
You can add cocoa powder or milk if you'd like.
