How to make pancakes like McDonald’s pancakes


So, my kids absolutely love McDonald’s pancakes and ask for them all the time. But, they are super expensive and
full of artificial stuff and sugar. I found a copy cat recipe for the famous pancakes and changed it to be even a little better.

1/2 cup sprite or 7-up
1/4 cup milk or almond milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 TBSP maple syrup(you actually don’t really need this, but it is a closer fit to McDonalds if you do)
2 TBSP margarine or butter
1 1/2 cup bisquick(I used heart healthy)
1 egg(can omit the egg and add 2/3 cup sprite instead of 1/2 cup if you are allergic like my daughter and they still turn out great)

Put all ingredients in a blender and pulse a few times to mix well. Cook on lightly greased
griddle. Turn pancakes when they puff up and the bubbles start popping. Serve with syrup or
my favorite strawberries and whip cream.

I am going to make a bunch of these up and see if they with freeze well.

    • Yes, they did freeze O.K., but they are better freshly made. If you are going to freeze them it is better to flash freeze them for about 15 minutes in a single layer on a cookie sheet and then stack them with waxed paper or freezer paper between each pancake, place a stack in a freezer bag and seal. When ready to eat heat in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds for each pancake. They can also be toasted in a toaster. I made a bunch and with some of them I made “McGriddles” sandwiches by adding cooked egg and sausage in between two pancakes, yum!

  1. These are great, I added milk ( well almond milk) about 2TB to make them thinner . I would add a little less soda next time, the lemon lime flavor was a little over powering
