Ingredients for Blackstone Pancakes
- All-purpose flour – There are tons of boxed pancake mixes out there, but making your own is crazy easy. Just start with all-purpose flour!
- Milk – You can use whole milk, 2% milk, skim milk, or any other milk you’d like.
- Baking powder – Baking powder will act as the rising agent for your pancakes.
- Sugar – You don’t want to make pancake batter too sweet, but adding a couple tablespoons of sugar gives it the perfect touch of sweetness it needs.
- Salt – A little pinch of salt will help to balance the flavor of your pancakes.
- Egg – Let your egg come to room temperature before using it so that it mixes more easily into the pancake batter.
- Melted Butter – You can use unsalted or salted butter, whichever you prefer.
- Butter – The melted butter will go in your pancake batter, but you’ll need a stick or pad of butter to use on the Blackstone before cooking your pancakes.
How to Cook Pancakes on a Griddle
In a large mixing bowl, sift and combine your dry ingredients. Then, in a separate bowl, beat the egg until it’s light and fluffy. Pour the milk and butter into the same bowl as the egg and stir to combine.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together until thoroughly combined. Let the pancake batter rest as you heat the Blackstone.
Grease the griddle with butter and preheat it to medium heat. To check if it’s ready, use an infrared temperature gun or sprinkle water on the surface of the griddle. If the water “dances”, it’s ready to go!
Use a 1/3 measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the griddle. Space each pancake a few inches apart.
Then, once bubbles for on the top of the pancake, flip it over. Don’t push down on the pancake, this is smush them and they won’t be light and fluffy!
Serve fresh and hot with warm butter, maple syrup, and fruit.
What to serve with Blackstone Pancakes
Don’t forget the hot coffee! In fact, you could even make a delicious caramel latte right at home.
How to store leftover pancakes
Pancakes are great to make ahead and eat during the week. They freeze super well and can be quickly reheated in the toaster oven or microwave.
FRIDGE: Store leftover pancakes in the fridge for up to a week. Be sure they’re completely cooled before storing.
FREEZER: The best way to freeze pancakes is to divide them into serving sizes. You can freeze them in groups of 3 or 4 in separate bags, or place them in a container with parchment paper in between each pancake. You can thaw to reheat, or reheat from frozen.
Can I add things to my pancake batter?
Griddle pancakes are delicious any way you choose to make them! You can add chocolate chips, blueberries, strawberries, cinnamon, or anything else your heart desire. However, be sure you don’t overload the batter with too many fillings.
Why are my pancakes chewy?
Chewy pancakes are often a result over over-mixed batter. These pancakes on the Blackstone can also become chewy if you press down on them while they’re cooking and flip them too many times. Light and fluffy griddle pancakes require less “messing” with the batter.
Pro Tips for the Best Blackstone Pancakes
- Use a metal spatula to effectively flip your pancakes on the Blackstone. To ensure fluffy pancakes, don’t press down on them while they cook and don’t flip them too many times.
- Make some homemade whipped cream to serve on top of your delicious griddle pancakes!
- Make multiple different flavors of pancakes by dividing your batter and then adding your fillings.
