Family Traditions of Bisquick Pancakes:

I remember my mother making pancakes in our 1960s kitchen.  We had a large bowl that was decorated with birds on the outside and she would mix in all of her favorite recipes.  One of my mother’s secret ingredients was vanilla. I remember her showing me how she added a teaspoon of vanilla whenever she made her delicious pancakes.

My mom would top pancakes with the fresh local maple syrup that we purchased on a family trip to a Maple syrup Sugar House. We would visit the Amish community near our home each year in early March. 

I was about 3 or 4 when I first visited a maple syrup farm and entered the sugar house with a long vat of maple sap steaming hot.  The sweet smell filled the cabin and the owner used a ladle to dip into the vat and gave each of us a small cup of pure maple syrup. 

The memory of this sugaring house is one of my strongest family memories. Every time I taste maple syrup, even to this day, I am transported back to the sugaring house and that small cup of deliciousness.

I love warm mouth-watering pancakes topped with maple syrup. With this basic pancake recipe, I love making pancakes for my family.   I still make our family recipe with Bisquick just like my mom taught me when I was in elementary school.

This History of Betty Crocker Kitchens Bisquick Mix:

In our home growing up, we made a lot of recipes with Bisquick as did many homes during and after the Great Depression.  General Mills tells of the history of Bisquick and how it was developed by Carl Smith after he met a chef on a train dining car who had pre-mixed ingredients for biscuits in 1930.  

Then Bisquick Mix was introduced it provided a quick and easy solution for making biscuits without the need for measuring out flour, shortening, salt, and baking powder. It was marketed as a “30-second biscuit mix,” aiming to simplify baking for American households.

Bisquick Mix makes a wide range of recipes, including classic pancakes, waffles, dumplings, pies, and even casseroles.

How to Make Fluffy Pancakes Quick & Easy with Bisquick Mix

  1. In a medium bowl mix the dry ingredients: Bisquick Mix, Whole Wheat Flour, and Cinnamon. 
  2. In a large bowl mix the wet ingredients: milk, whole eggs, egg whites, unsweetened applesauce, and vanilla extract. 
  3. To make the pancake batter mix together the dry and wet ingredients with a whisk; you do not have to get all the lumps out. 
  4. Over medium-high heat prepare your pan or skillet with tablespoon of olive oil or olive oil spray. 
  5. Drop between a 1/4 cup and a half cup of pancake batter for perfectly round delicious fall apple cinnamon pancakes.
  6. When making a large batch you can add the pancake batter in a squeeze bottle with a small nozzle. This helps the pancakes remain uniform.
  7. Cook the pancakes for about one to one and a half minutes on each side. The key is to not flip the pancake until you see little bubbles form in the batter, turn, and then about one to one and a half minutes to cook on the other side.

  9. Keep leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge or in a plastic bag in the freezer.

Tips and Tricks for Making a Big Batch

We all love pancakes in our home and I make a double batch so we have plenty on hand. I take the basic recipe and double it so I have plenty to freeze for a quick snack or lunch.

  • I purchased a large rectangular electric skillet as I usually make two of the double batches. I freeze any that are not eaten right away.  This makes a quick breakfast easy and special. 
  • I use about a tablespoon of olive oil to grease the pan or skillet; this gives the pancakes a crisp edge.  I add more olive oil as needed.
