The original Pamela’s pancake recipe — still hands down the family favorite for breakfast!


Yield: six- 4 inch pancakes




Mix all ingredients together until there are no lumps. Batter should not be too thin or too thick. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto a preheated, lightly oiled griddle (medium low heat, or 350º for electric griddles), flip once. Serve immediately. Extra pancakes can be cooked, cooled, and then wrapped in plastic and frozen. To reheat, remove any wrapping and microwave pancakes wrapped in a paper towel until hot, approximately one-minute.

    While it can be done, the only recipe we have for Pancakes with the Bread mix is non-Dairy:

    Hi there and thank you!

    I got a sample of these from the Expo in Toronto and have been saving to try them for just the right time, which was yesterday – WOW what a delight; they are the BEST ever. I threw some bananas and blueberries in too and the batter held just fine.

    Where can I buy more of the GF pancakes in Toronto?

    Happy Holidays!

    I really do love using Pamela’s Baking Mix for pancakes. I substitute 1/2 the water with milk and add vanilla. Unfortunately, I have found that I can not tolerate almonds and that is the main flour used in this mix. Oh, how I love the subtle crunch in these pancakes. Anyway, I HIGHLY recommend this baking mix for pancakes, muffins, and various desserts. Love it!

    Made the recipe as above, but pancakes were a little thin, and a little too savory for us. Made a second batch and substituted 1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk + 1/4 cup water for the water, and omitted the oil completely. Success! A much more satisfying pancake for us. We will add a tsp. of sugar the next time we make them.

    I made your pam-cakes and found them to be really good! However, in my efforts to assure there were no lumps I whisked the mixed batter. Though the pam-cakes were very tasty, they were thin. So, how do you get the lumps out without whisking and still ?

    I want to do the waffles, but have the same concerns.

      HI Bob –
      This recipe tends to make thinner pancakes. If you would like thicker pancakes add a little more mix until you reach your desired consistency.
      I hope this is helpful.

      I would like to know too. Eggless Pam cakes?

    Hi, I add less water. The first time I made these the batter was so runny there was no way I could cook them. I added more mix but then had enough to feed 6 instead of 2. I now use half the water and check the consistency, if it needs more I put more in a little at a time. The egg size matters too.

    I love Pamela’s products and encouraged Swanson Health Products to carry this mix. Now I’m trying to get them to carry the 4lb one. This mix is a staple in our diets. Thank you.

    We love these pancakes!! We’ve been making these for years. We love to add a little vanilla and almond extract 🙂

    I love pancakes. So when I switched to a gluten free diet, I was mourning the loss of my favorite Saturday morning treat. Now, I use Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix and am thrilled with the results. Even my husband likes them, and he’s quite the pancake snob. Thank you, Pamela!

    Love these pancakes. We omit the oil. Pancakes are awesome! Throw in some choc chips, bananas, blue berries or anything else. Yum
