Off the Grid(dle) Pancakes

pancake_squaresWould you like to make pancakes but don’t want to stand there at the griddle flipping flapjacks all morning? Here is a fun way to make pancakes at camp in your Dutch oven, freeing up your griddle for more important things like frying bacon!

I first made these in my 10-inch Dutch oven, but you could easily double or triple the recipe and bake them in a larger oven. The next time I do this; I plan to triple the recipe and bake it in a 16-inch Dutch oven.


3/4 cup milk

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 large egg

1 tablespoon sugar

1 cup flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt


10-inch Dutch oven, mixing bowl, wire whisk, rubber spatula.


Start 21 briquettes. Grease or line your Dutch oven. In a large mixing bowl, beat together milk, butter and egg. Add sugar and then gradually beat the flour in. Carefully stir in the baking powder and salt. Pour batter into prepared Dutch oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, using 14 coals on the lid and 7 under the oven. Serve with butter, maple syrup and/or honey. Serves 4-6.
