"Three fluffy hotcakes prepared just the way they make 'em on the red-water moon in the Panna system. Served fresh off the robo-griddle with bantha butter and carbosyrup."
―Description for panna cakes at Dex's Diner[src]

Panna cakes were a breakfast dish consisting of hotcakes. Locations where they were made and eaten included the moon Panna Prime and Dex's Diner on the planet Coruscant. At the diner, the cakes were prepared by the Besalisk chef Dexter Jettster, who cooked the cakes on a robo-griddle and served them with bantha butter and carbosyrup.

Description[edit | edit source]

Panna cakes were a dish consisting of hotcakes that could be cooked on a robo-griddle and could be eaten by members of the Besalisk species. Described by the Besalisk chef Dexter Jettster as fluffy and delicious, the cakes could be served with bantha butter and carbosyrup. Ettel nuts or zoochberries could also be served with the dish.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The cakes were made and eaten[1] on Panna Prime,[2] a moon in the Panna system, and were also served as a breakfast dish at Dex's Diner, an eatery located on the planet Coruscant. Dexter Jettster, who owned Dex's, sold the cakes fresh off a robo-griddle in portions of three with bantha butter, carbosyrup, and a breakfast side dish for AurebeshSans-Serif credit.png4.5 and offered ettel nuts or zoochberries with the dish for an additional AurebeshSans-Serif credit.png1. The cakes were sold at Dex's Diner[1] sometime prior to its destruction during the first two years of the Galactic Empire's rule.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

"At its most basic level, this thinking led to a number of puns—Panna cakes, Wol Cabasshews, Xizor salad, Sic-Six-layer cake, Tibanna split and Shili cheese dog among them—that are either inspired or stupid or both, depending on one's sense of humor."
―Gregory Walker[src]

Panna cakes were first mentioned in the 2009 StarWars.com Hyperspace-exclusive article Dining at Dex's, written by Gregory Walker in the style of an in-universe menu for Dex's Diner.[1] In his StarWars.com blog, Walker stated that the dish's name was a pun,[4] as "panna cake" is similar to the real-world pancake.
