Bisquick Pancakes

Pancakes are one of America’s oldest - and favorite - types of quick bread. Both Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin are said to have served and enjoyed these griddle-cooked breakfast cakes.

Leftovers? Stack cooled pancakes between sheets of waxed paper. Wrap in aluminum foil and freeze. To reheat, unwrap pancakes and removed waxed paper. Heat on ungreased cookie sheet in 400 degrees F oven 5 to 7 minutes or until hot, or microwave uncovered on high until hot.

Treat your children to personalized pancakes. Fill a clean squeeze bottle with pancake batter, and spell out your children’s names by squeezing batter into the skillet in the shape of letters.

Don't flip 'em more than once! Repeated cooking on both sides toughens rather than browns the pancakes.

For uniformly shaped pancakes, pour the batter from an ice-cream scoop or 1/4-cup measure.


  • 2 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1 cup milk*
  • 2 eggs

If you like thin pancakes, use 1 1/2 cups milk.


  1. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375 degrees F; grease with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)
  2. Stir all ingredients until blended. Pour by slightly less than 1/4 cupsful onto hot griddle.
  3. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden.
