Decadent Pancake Recipes Using Bisquick

Why not treat yourself or surprise your family by fixing quick and easy gourmet pancakes? You don't need to make them from scratch. I will show you how to make them using bisquick and adding a few simple ingredients. Its no wonder that many people turn to restaurants to get their pancake fix. But what if you could enjoy this breakfast favorite at home in the comfort of your pajamas? Gourmet can be just a little extra time or ingredient that sets your food apart from the everyday flapjack into something special.


Bisquick pancakes are probably one of the easiest hot breakfasts to whip up in a hurry for family, friends, or even a big crowd of overnight guests. Like when your kids have a sleepover. All you really need is eggs, milk and Bisquick mix plus butter and syrup.

Basic Bisquick Pancakes

The basic pancake recipe uses:

  • 2 cups of Bisquick Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
Simply beat all the ingredients together and then pour about a 1/4 cup of the batter onto a sizzling hot greased or nonstick griddle. Cook until the edges begin to dry and they are golden brown on the bottom, then flip and continue cooking until that side is golden brown.


There are all kids of variations you can incorporate to delight your taste buds.

Consider adding one of these items to your uncooked batter:

Chocolate Chips

Of course, kids always love chocolate chip pancakes. And you can use white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or butterscotch chips as well. Use 1/2 cup in the batter.

Blueberries, strawberries

Blueberries are a great antioxidant rich fruit and they taste delicious in Bisquick pancakes. Just stir in 1 cup of fruit into the batter before cooking.

Tiny pieces of apple, banana, peach or other fresh fruits

Bananas are rich in potassium. Slice them up and drop slices onto the griddle and then pour the pancake batter over the banana slices and cook.

Nuts like walnuts, peanuts or pecans

Here is a great idea that I found on the Coffee-mate website.

Simple substitute 1 cup of your favorite flavor of liquid coffee-mate for milk in the batter.

These are the flavors available which can produce some amazingly creative pancakes.
