The Ingredient Ratios for Bisquick® Pancakes

Raise your hand if you grew up with a mom who sealed up boxed foods in plastic bags to keep it fresh, wrote what was in the bag with a black Sharpie marker – and now you are doing the same. *raises hand*. That’s really the only way to keep it from being a mess, to be honest. Have you ever had a box of spaghetti fall and open up? I rest my case. This Bisquick® pancake recipe is for those of you who have thrown out the box and need the correct ratios to make pancakes!

Here are the ratios for making Bisquick® Pancakes:

  • 2 cups of baking mix
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Two eggs

Stir them all up until they are mixed thoroughly, then cook on a medium-high heat griddle.

This is what I always need when I am camping and thanks to the wonders of the internet I can quickly google up the ratios needed to make Bisquick pancakes. And I will, I know that next summer when I am out at the lake and have my bag of Bisquick I will be coming to this post on my website and checking it out. There is no way I will remember the ratios, even though they seem simple. The math on my lack of memory is simple:

42 years of age + makes hundreds of recipes a year + children + full time business owner = NO MEMORY

Remember that I said I had a ton of Bisquick® leftover from camping this past summer? Well, I put it to good use and tried out some more recipes that use it—and we loved all of them!

Happy cooking!

Classic Bisquick Pancake Ingredients

Extra Bisquick Pancake Ingredients

  • 2-3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Optional Add-Ins

  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice to make buttermilk pancakes


  • Pre-heat a lightly oiled griddle to 375 ° or a lightly oiled large skillet on the stove to medium high heat. 
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together all of the pancake ingredients until smooth. If you want to add in the extra batter ingredients, whisk them in at this point. Then stir in your blueberries/etc.
  • Pour approximately 1/4 cup of the batter onto the hot griddle, spacing out the pancakes so that they have room to spread out if needed.
  • Cook until the edges of the pancake are cooked, there are bubbles coming through the top and the bottom is browned nicely. Flip and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes more until browned again.
  • Remove and plate. Continue cooking until all of the batter is used up.
  • Serve with butter and syrup.

Recipe Notes

  • Nutritional information will vary based on the brands and types of ingredients used.
  • Pancakes freeze well, simply freeze them in a single layer on parchment paper, then place into a sealed freezer safe bag. My kids then toast them up during the school week for breakfast!

    Thanks for posting this recipe. Excellent use of buttermilk biscuit envelopes5 stars

  2. ann fiorentino says

    I do not add oil to the Bisquick ( new recipe)pancake mix. why has this been added.. i use grapeseed oil as needed in the pan. sparingly of course. but apparently just enough for the taste. i also thin the mixture down to make crepes. the crepes i sprinkle with lemon juice and sugar and roll them. do not always care for the classic pancake , too heavy. may be an english thing. everything works perfectly.

    I was scammed a huge sum of money and decided to contact a recovery company via their email address: ( harperjamesplatform @ gmail . com) they help me recover all my lost funds and profits. They are very honest and reliable with great support to answer your questions 24/7 service. They have good reviews online and they are the best …if you need help with funds recovery you can always get in touch by mail and they can direct you to their recovery website. Everything about them is legit, their English is good ,I highly recommend them due to my experience and have finally got my $25,350 back. I’m so happy.

    Thank you for this post Karlynn, no Bisquick box to read the recipe this morning! It made my morning easier, I appreciate it!

  5. KERMIT says

    I too store my things in plastic bags, when I empty the box into the bag I cut the recipes out and put them inside also.

  6. Debra Biase says

    I the ultimate recipe tonight very flat. When I read the side of the box I knew why. Did you forget to add baking powder to the ultimate recipe ?

  7. Suzanne says

    Thank you for sharing your recipe! I had a airtight container of homemade Bisquick mix in my freezer, but it was buried under other frozen foods and silly me, it has been a while so I forgot how to make pancakes with it! Your recipe was great and the pancakes looked perfect and tasted wonderful! So I won’t forget next time, I pinned it to my Pinterest. ? Thanks again!5 stars

    I have a 7.5 oz. bag of Bisquick complete buttermilk biscuit mix. Can I use that for pancakes?

  9. Joe D Weaver says

    l felt pretty stupid when I got out my Bisquick (which I had cleverly stored in a plastic bag) and realized–I don’t have the recipe! I knew it was simple, but so am I and I had no idea what the ratios were. I wasn’t sure if anyone had posted anything so simple.
    Usually, when I search a recipe I skip the blog, but this one intrigued me. I identified with a lot of the comments. modified: 65-year-old male with grown children about Karlynn’s age, retired, not particularly smart–especially if it involves numbers.
    That being said, my five-star review is more on the site and the AVAILIBILITY of the recipe, than on the taste, texture, or whatever of the finished product. I mean, they are Bisquick pancakes, made with three ingredients. Unless I REALLY screw something up (which is always a possibility) I know how they will taste. Incidentally, I usually add a little chocolate or peanut butter flavored protein powder to mine so I can tell myself that the pancakes are “good for me”!

    • Karlynn says

      Thank you Joe, you made my day! Glad you found the recipe and another person (me) that stores everything in plastic bags haha!

      • Lisa C Carver says

        I have not made it yet I’m trying to get a recipe to make this morning how many pancakes will it make roughly I understand it depends on the size but ballpark?

  10. Paul Johnson says

    Ok,now how do I make biscuits from the bisquick mix. Thank you

  11. EmmiJade says

    Beautiful! Bisquick is so good to have on hand. I use a low-carb version called Carbquik, but I bet these rations will work just the same for that! There’s nothing quite as tasty as a good stack of pancakes in my opinion…one of my favorite breakfasts of all time! Thank you for sharing this as a resource – like you I have NO time on my hands and there’s no way I’ll be able to remember the ratios when I need them.5 stars
