Classic Pancakes

Lodge Cast Iron | September 14, 2016

This classic recipe for pancakes is delicious when cooked on the stove top, or even on the grill. Whether you’re rising with the sun, or just wanting to enjoy a little breakfast for dinner, there is no reason breakfast foods shouldn’t be on the indoor and outdoor menu.

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup chopped pecans


  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  2. Add the milk, egg, and butter and mix until just combined.
  3. Preheat a Carbon Steel Griddle on your grill or stovetop over medium heat. 
  4. Add butter, oil, or nonstick spray to the griddle, then drop about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake.
  5. Add desired amounts of fruit and nuts (or whatever you like) at this point.
  6. Cook until bubbles begin to rise and pop in the batter (about 3-4 minutes), flip the pancake and cook until golden on the bottom.

Pro Tip: Recycle an old squeezable ketchup bottle for your pancake batter and draw fun shapes with your pancakes.

Kitchen Note: The Carbon Steel Griddle is not recommended for glass-top stoves.
