Ingredients for Classic Pancakes with Bisquick Mix

See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.

  • Bisquick baking mix – This is a type of boxed pancake mix and is the key to making a stack of quick and easy pancakes.
  • Milk – You can use dairy milk, almond milk, or any type of milk you have on hand.
  • Eggs – Large eggs act as a binder, holding the ingredients together. I haven’t tested this recipe with egg substitutes but don’t think it would turn out very well.
  • Granulated sugar (optional, for sweetness)
  • Vanilla extract (optional, for flavor)
  • Butter or oil – This is used for greasing the griddle or pan.

Variations

  • Add nuts such as chopped almonds, pecans, or walnuts to the batter for a bit of crunch.
  • Fold in fruit like banana coins, sliced strawberries, or blueberries.
  • Make your morning sweet, and drop your favorite chocolate chips into the batter.
  • Change the topping each time you make the pancakes. Better yet – set out a variety of topping options so that each person can decorate their stack however they want!

How To Make Bisquick Pancakes

  1. Mix: Combine the milk, baking mix, eggs, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl, mixing just until combined. Be careful not to overmix!
  2. Preheat: Heat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add butter: Add a bit of butter to the griddle, swirling it around to coat the pan as it melts.
  4. Pour: Spoon 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto the hot griddle. Spread it lightly to make a round shape.
  5. Cook: Cook the pancakes until you see bubbles forming on the surface. This will take about 2-3 minutes. Flip, and continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes or until the pancake has set and is golden brown.
  6. Repeat: Repeat the process until all the pancakes are cooked.
  7. Transfer: Put the cooked pancakes onto a serving plate, and cover them to keep them warm.

Quick Tip

Before you begin cooking, sprinkle a few drops on the griddle or skillet. If the water sizzles and evaporates, the pan is ready for the pancake mix! If not, allow it to heat a while longer.

How To Store Bisquick Pancakes

Store the cooked and cooled pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Then, warm them in the microwave or in a skillet over medium heat on the stove.

Or, to freeze, place them in a sealable bag or freezer-safe container, and place a sheet of parchment paper between each pancake. This will prevent them from clumping together! They will stay fresh in the freezer for 2-3 months. When you’re ready to eat, let them thaw in the fridge overnight, or warm them from frozen.

FAQs

Do you use water or milk for Bisquick?

While this recipe calls for using milk, you can use water if you want. It will change the texture and flavor a bit, but your pancakes will still taste great!

What makes pancakes fluffier?

If you want to make a fluffy stack of pancakes, try using buttermilk in place of the milk. The acidity helps tenderize the gluten in the pancake batter, crating a texture that is better than your local diner’s recipe.

What is the secret to good pancakes?

The best tip to remember when making pancakes is to not overmix the batter. Combine the ingredients just until no streaks remain. Otherwise, your pancakes are likely to become tough and chewy, and we don’t want that!

    Love all things Bisquick. Will be sure and try this recipe next time I make pancakes.
    I make great biscuits with Bisquick too. 3 C. Bisquick, 3/4-1c milk(place in freezer while getting other ingredients together)
    3 T. Butter cut into small pieces, frozen for a few minutes then gently folded into Bisquick
    Remove milk from freezer and slowly mix until dough comes together but is wet. On waxed paper, place about 1/4 C of Bisquick there and pour out dough. Pat and fold dough over about 6-8 times adding more Bisquick for easy handling.pat down to 1/4 thickness and cut with 2 inch cutter place in buttered cast iron skillet and cook in preheated oven at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes until golden brown
