The Perfect Crepe Style Bisquick Pancake

Cooking Materials

  • Griddle or Medium – Large Skillet/Frying Pan
  • Spatula, Spoon, Fork
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Cookie Sheet/Cake Pan (will explain why later)

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Original Bisquick Mix
  • 1 1/3 Cups of Unsweetened Almond Milk (try with sweetened vanilla or coconut almond milk for an extra treat 🙂 )
  • 2 Large Brown Eggs
  • 1 – 2 Tablespoons of Melted Butter

First, start off by pre-heating your oven to 175 degrees. If this specific temperature is not listed on your oven, just make sure the temp is below 200 degrees (more on why we’re using the oven later).

Directions

Preheat

  • If you’re using a Griddle, preheat at 375 degrees – or the temperature listed in the instructional manual for your griddle…While your griddle is preheating, you can prepare your pancake batter.
  • If you’re using the Skillet/Frying Pan method, be sure to prepare your pancake batter before preheating your pan. Otherwise, your skillet may get too hot & burn your 1st pancake.

Making The Batter

Step 1: Place milk, eggs and melted butter into a large mixing bowl. With a fork, thoroughly blend the ingredients together. Make sure eggs are mixed well.

Step 2: With the same fork, thoroughly blend the Bisquick with your milk, egg and butter mixture. If any Bisquick clumps up on sides of bowl, use a spoon to scrape sides and blend in with the rest of mixture.

Mix well, leaving as few lumps as possible.

*This step is not necessary: Pour your Batter into a measuring cup. I feel doing this makes it easier to control the batter as you’re pouring onto griddle or in skillet.

Time To Make The Pancakes

Griddle Users: Take 1 tablespoon of butter and spread it evenly across the surface of griddle. You will perform this step each time before pouring a new batch of pancakes onto griddle.

Skillet Users: Place 1 tablespoon of butter into pan & preheat at a medium to medium-high heat. This will depend on the type of stove you have (gas or electric). You will know best how to adjust the temperature of your stove.

Make sure to evenly coat the bottom of pan with the melted butter.  You will perform this step each time before pouring a new pancake into pan.

  • Allow your Pancake to cook on the first side for 3 – 5 minutes.
  • When the tiny bubbles on the top appear to be almost cooked, it’s time to flip your pancake. Press down on the top of the pancake, one time, with a spatula after flipping.

  • Once flipped, you will cook your pancake about another 1 -2 minutes.

What’s The Oven For?

  • Remove your pancake(s) from the griddle/skillet & place on a cookie sheet or in a cake pan (any pan that can hold the pancakes and go in the oven).
  • Lightly butter each side of pancake & place in the oven to keep warm. Placing a light layer of butter on pancake keeps it moist and prevents over cooking or drying out while in oven. Plus, you won’t need any butter when it’s time to eat.

I use the oven to keep pancakes warm if I’m preparing a large quantity, or making other items like bacon & eggs. Nobody likes cold pancakes; and it’s nice for the entire family or you and all of your friends to eat together, instead of at different times.

Enjoy your pancakes with Maple Syrup, Add Bananas or Peach Preserves!
