Why people use Bisquick…I will never understand. All you need for good pancake batter is ingredients that are most likely already in your pantry and refrigerator. Like most baking mixes, all Bisquick is a box of flour, baking powder, salt, etc. And by the etc. I mean that there’s probably some sort of strange filler ingredients and/or preservatives.

So do yourself a favor and make pancakes from scratch. You can add blueberries, huckleberries, nuts, and other accoutrements to the batter while it’s in the pan (just drop the ingredients on the pancake, push them down a bit, and then flip).

The pancakes turn out light and fluffy just like they should be.
