These are the best pancakes I’ve ever made. These are the best pancakes I’ve ever eaten. From anywhere. Seriously. Delicious.
These pancakes were a two-part recipe for me, because I first had to make a homemade Bisquick mix. Here is that recipe below, from Unsophisticook.
Homemade Bisquick Mix
6 cups all-purpose flour
3 T. baking powder
1 t. salt
1/2 c. cold unsalted butter (REAL butter please!)
Blend the flour, baking powder and salt thoroughly in a large bowl with a wire whisk. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or two butter knives. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
I then used the recipe for Melt in Your Mouth Pancakes off the back of my sister’s Bisquick box, but using my homemade mix above.
Melt in Your Mouth Pancakes
2 c. homemade bisquick mix
1 c. of milk (may need to add in more if batter is too thick)
2 T. sugar (I used sucanat)
2 t. baking powder
1 t. vanilla
Turn stove burner to medium*. Using a stick of butter, lightly grease a pan and place on burner. Dump all ingredients above into a bowl and whisk together until thoroughly mixed. Batter should still be a bit lumpy. Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, ladle some of the batter and pour into pan. Flip your pancake once bubbles are consistently forming on the top of the pancake. Let the pancake cook through for a minute or two, but do not press down on it or flip again. This will flatten your nice, plump pancake! Let pancake cool on a plate while you repeat the process over!*You may need to adjust your burner down to medium-low depending on how hot your stove gets.
If you have never made pancakes before, be forewarned that your first pancake will turn out funny looking and have a weird texture. At least for me this always happens! So, don’t be discouraged. Keep pouring, cooking and flipping those pancakes! Feel free to add some toppings and syrup. My girls think these are yummy enough to eat alone!
