Pancakes are a favorite around our house. I usually stick with the same recipe. This is my absolute favorite recipe for pancakes and to me these beat those made from scratch every time. Now that’s just my opinion. But, what am I to do? I can’t keep blogging about the same recipe every semester. I have to reach beyond my comfort zone. Here’s what I did this time around. I demonstrated this Oatmeal-Brown Sugar Pancake recipe found on the Betty Crocker site. I liked it. The brown sugar and oatmeal give this pancake a great flavor.
The demo was a hit. One of the comments was, “Look at Mrs. Lupo, she can flip those pancakes so elegantly!” I just love what comes out of their mouths. At least most of the time! This group I have this semester is going to keep me on my toes. As they planned their lab the wheels were turning. ” Can we do this?” “Will it be Ok if we bring this?” ” Can we invite Coach B?” I cannot wait to see what they have all cooked up!
Check back this weekend for the results of their cook-off. Now here is the recipe. If you need pictures to guide you along check these out.
Oatmeal-Brown Sugar Pancakes from Betty Crocker
- 2 cups of original Bisquick
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
- 2 Tablespoons of packed brown sugar
- 1 1/4 cups of whole milk ( I used 1 cup of skim milk ) Just a note here. I made these twice. The first time I used 11/4 cups of skim milk and I thought the batter was too thin. When I reduced it to 1 cup of skim milk the batter was a better consistency.
- 2 eggs
Lightly grease griddle or skillet with vegetable oil. Heat griddle or electric skillet to medium heat. I used 325 – 350 degrees. Whisk dry ingredients together. Whisk liquid ingredients together. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Pour a scant 1/4 cup on to the griddle. I usually cook six pancakes at the time. When the bubbles start to burst turn them. Cook until golden brown. Enjoy with your favorite toppings.

I didn’t know that there were so many spatulas to use. I didn’t really think the edge mattered when it came to flipping the pancakes either.
althought our class decided to use the other recipe i liked this one alot more. The oatmeal gives these pancakes a healthy twist and they tasted better if you ask me!
Found out that if you put a tiny bit less of milk they wont be so thin.
I learned how to pour pancake batter on the griddle.
I realized that you can never cook too much pancake mix at once. The pancakes are more likely to be undercooked.
Im so glad i learned how to control the fluffyness by adding or taking away milk! Because i like mine fluffy and now i can control that.
The pancakes were really easy to make. They didn’t require too many ingredients or anything complicated methods.
Your demonstration was very helpful! It helped us learn how to measure all the ingredients correctly and I learned that flipping the pancakes was alot harder then you made it look!!
The demo really helped us; I learned that flipping pancakes is harder than it looks. And that if you don’t get the right amount of milk, your pancakes will get too thick!
The pancakes turned out really well and I agree you made flipping the pancakes look really easy. I learned that puttin to much skim milk will make the pancakes flat.
I didn’t know that you used the muffin method to make pancakes! Thanks mrs lupo!
I didn’t know that when there was bubbles on top, it was done.
The pancake lab was really interesting to watch, I didn’t know that you could put oats in pancakes but I think that it made them have a weird texture!! (:
the pancakes were good but to me the good old fashion pancakes are better than oatmeal.(thats because im not a big fan of oatmeal.)
I liked the demo on this pancake because it was fun to watch. I thought that the pancakes were really good and the oats made it have a really good twist to normal kinds of pancakes.
the pancakes were great. i thought i knew a lot about making pancakes but i really learned sooo much ! one of the things i learned was that if you want to make the pancakes a little bit flatter then decrease the amount of milk that you pour into your batter.
I never knew that when pancakes started bubbling that was the signal for you to flip them over.
I learned that using skim milk makes your pancakes flatter, even though it is healthier for you. If you use skim milk, you shouldn’t use as much.
I learned that using different kinds of milk could affect how flat the pancakes are or not.

I didn’t know that you have to pack brown sugar.

The oatmeal pancakes that you cooked were very tasty because i never had them before in my life but when you cooked them they were very unique because i didn’t know that you could use oatmeal but i liked the way you added the brown sugar because it made them sweeter and tastier.
I learned that if you dont put enough milk in the mix that the batter will be to thick and the pancakes wont cook all the way through.
I learned that you know when to flip the pancakes on the griddle when they get nice and bubbly!
When you added the oatmeal the pancakes really tasted good with the oatmeal and brown sugar.
They don’t sound so good to me as I don’t like sugar in my pancakes, but I’m trusting you on this one. Oatmeal, I love – so when I do my Breakfast Foods unit in grade 7, this will be a new recipe in the pancake portion. I am excited to try it. They look wonderful!
Let me know how it goes. I cannot believe that you are still on vacation! How nice for you.

i liked the oatmeal pancakes better than the regular ones. the brown sugar gave the oatmeal ones a sweeter taste. i learned that you dont have the level oatmeal when measuring.
I learned that less milk you put in the pancake mix the flatter the pancakes will be and I still think the oats made them rise. just sayin..
