For pancake loves, there's nothing like a stack of hot, fluffy pancakes stacked on a plate for breakfast. Unfortunately, making pancakes takes more time than many have in the middle of a busy week. Gathering and combining all the ingredients takes time on top of having to actually cook the pancakes. Bisquick, one of the major flour mix companies, offers a solution with its ready-made batter that you only have to add water to. Bisquick Shake 'N Pour is a simple, time-saving solution when you're craving those hot pancakes on a busy day.

Pour 1 1/2 cups cool water into the Bisquick Shake 'N Pour. Close the lid tightly.

Shake the container vigorously for 30 seconds. Tap the bottom of the container on a counter to loosen any stuck mix and shake vigorously for another 10 to 20 seconds to ensure the water and the mix are fully blended.

Pour the batter onto the greased skillet slowly to make pancakes about four inches in diameter.

Cook the pancake until bubbles form all over the pancake and the edges are dry. Flip over.

Cook the pancake on the other side for two to three minutes, or until the underside is golden brown. Serve hot. You can refrigerate leftover batter for up to three days.


  • You can add flavorings such as cinnamon to the bottle mix for flavored pancakes.

    Add 1 tbsp. of water if the batter is too thick.
