Blackstone Pancakes Recipe:

Cooking pancakes on Blackstone Griddle has become one of my favorite ways to make pancakes. The pancakes come out golden brown and so fluffy. These pancakes remind of the pancakes we get at our favorite diner.

We always have ingredients to make pancakes. It is a quick and easy breakfast idea any day of the week. We love to top these flat top griddle pancakes with butter and syrup with a side of fruit for an amazing breakfast.

Because of the large Griddle Surface we always make these pancakes for my large family and when my kids have friends over. Making breakfast at home saves me time and money.

Blackstone Pancake Dispenser:

We recommend using a Pancake Dispenser. It is much easier pouring the pancake batter on the flat top. We didn’t use it the first time making these pancakes, but we have recently purchased one and it worked much easier.

Ingredients needed - flour, butter, baking powder, salt, sugar, eggs, milk, vanilla

Ingredients:

  • All Purpose Flour
  • Butter, melted and cooled
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Vanilla Extract

How to Make Pancakes on the Blackstone Griddle:

  • Prepare Blackstone Grill – Preheat the Blackstone grill over medium high heat (approximately 400 degrees F).
  • Mix together Dry Ingredients – In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder or baking soda, salt and sugar.

  • Combine wet and dry ingredients – Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined being careful to not over mix the batter. It’s ok if there are lumps in the batter.

  • Pour batter onto griddle – Pour approximately ⅓ cup of the batter onto the hot Blackstone cooking surface. Continue to pour pancakes onto the griddle spacing them a few inches apart until all the batter is used.
  • Cook Pancakes – Cook the pancakes for 1-2 minutes until bubbles start to appear on the top and the edges are set.

  • Flip Pancakes – Use a metal spatula to flip the pancakes and cook the opposite side until it’s golden brown (1-2 more minutes). Do not press done on the pancakes and do not flip the pancakes multiple times.
  • Finished Cooking – Once pancakes are finished cooking, I like to place on a serving platter lined with paper towels.

  • Serve and Enjoy – Then serve the pancakes warm topped with butter, syrup or any of your other favorite pancake toppings.

What Temp Should Blackstone be at for Pancakes?

When preparing your griddle for cooking pancakes, we recommend cooking them on medium heat to high heat. We like to cook the pancakes with the griddle temperature around 400 degrees.

Cooking the pancakes on a high heat prevents them from sticking to the griddle.

How do you Keep Pancakes from Sticking on a Griddle:

To prevent your pancakes from sticking to the griddle, make sure that you have oiled the griddle properly. We use an oil that has a high smoke point such as vegetable oil. You can also use butter.

Also, make sure your griddle is heated with a high heat. This allows the pancakes to cook and not stick to the griddle.

How Long to Cook Pancakes:

It takes about 2 minutes on each side for the pancakes to cook. The batter on top starts to bubble and that is when you know that the pancakes are finished cooking. Then you need to flip the pancakes and cook for additional 2 minutes.

Blackstone Pancake Tips:

  • Don’t overmix batter – Make sure to not over mix the pancake batter. Mix just until the wet and dry ingredients are combined.
  • Butter to room temperature – Make sure that the melted butter has cooled to room temperature so that it does not cook the eggs once they are mixed into the butter.
  • Serve Immediately – We like to serve pancakes warm so the butter melts.

What Makes Pancake Fluffier?

When mixing the pancake ingredients, make sure not to overmix the batter. You want the batter to be thick which results in a fluffier pancake. When the pancake batter is thin, the pancakes are thinner.

Blackstone Griddle Pancake Topping Ideas:

  • Butter
  • Maple Syrup
  • Fruit
  • Whipped Topping
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Fresh Fruit
