Picture of Our pancakes.
Bisquick not required. To be honest, I do not see what it offers, as you still have to add most all of the same ingredients anyway, There are some pancake mixes where all you have to do is add water. That is great for picnics and camping trips where no refrigeration is required. Bad thing about that is you have no idea what is in the mix. We do not make pancakes that often, but when we do it is a real treat. This is a real American breakfast. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Step 1: Ingredients.

Picture of ingredients.
1 cup water.
2 cups sugar (we use brown sugar)
Optional: Vanilla and maple extract.
Optional some people add a bit of buttermilk.
Sometimes we substitute apple sauce or ground fruit and berries for the syrup.

Pancake batter:
1 cup buttermilk (substitution: one cup milk with 1 tablespoon juice or vinegar made the night before and refrigerated)
1/3 to 1/2 cup cooking oil or melted butter.
1 room temperature egg.
1 teaspoon salt.
1 cup all-purpose flour (up to 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour can be substituted).
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon or less of baking soda.
It looks very good. i will try it.

If you want to make super-fluffy pancakes and don't have any buttermilk on hand you can stir a tablespoon of lemon juice into your wet ingredients for any pancake recipe. The acid in the lemon juice does the same thing as the buttermilk, which is react with the baking powder, creating levening. This also works with biscuits, dumplings, etc. You can use lemon juice for sweet applications and vinegar for savory applications. It turns regular Bisquick pancakes into slap-yer-mama pancakes, and everyone will think you are a master chef.

Think but not sure that I sort of mentioned part of that in the ingredients.

Wow, make you own syrup? But the trees do such a great job!

I like to add vanilla yogurt, strawberries, and bananas to my waffle/pancakes.

Yum & yum!

I had to smile at your comment about the pancake mix. I was recently given a box of oatmeal with individual servings. This person did not like it I guess, but I had to laugh because it takes lazy to the highest level! It was 10 single servings of just quick oatmeal and you used the bag to measure the water. I suppose on a camping trip it would be OK but really?
