Sodalicious Pancakes...

This four-ingredient pancake recipe has one surprise ingredient...soda - specifically 7-Up!  You need to try this.  The pancakes are lighter and fluffier than regular pancakes and even taste more like restaurant pancakes and even pretty close to McDonald's hot cakes.  Not only that,they are super easy to make.

  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tbsp corn oil
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 - 1½ cups 7-Up

  1.  Heat griddle to 350°.
  2. Beat one egg in a bowl.
  3. Add corn oil and 1 cup 7-Up.  Blend.
  4. Stir in Bisquick.
  5. Add additional 7-Up to make the mixture the right consistency for pouring the pancakes.  Mix together.  It is ok if there are still a few lumps remaining in the mixture.
  6. Make the pancakes by pouring ¼ cup of the pancake mix on the griddle for each pancake.
  7. Cook the pancakes until they are lightly browned, turning only once.
          Makes about eight 4-inch pancakes.

This all of the things you need to make the 7-Up pancakes... plus one egg.

Crack an egg on the side of the bowl and then pour the inside of the egg into the bowl.

Measure one tablespoon of corn oil and pour that into the bowl with the egg.

Completely mix together the egg and oil.

Measure one cup of 7-Up.  You can also use Sprite or Sierra Mist or even Mountain Dew for a little bit different taste.

Pour the 7-Up into the bowl with the egg and oil and mix it all together.

Use a dry measuring cup to measure two cups of Bisquick.

Smooth the Bisquick even with the top of the measuring cup.

Pour the Bisquick into the bowl with the egg, oil, and 7-up.  I am using a one-cup measuring cup so I use two of them in the mix.

Now mix all of the ingredients together until everything is wet.  It is ok if there are still a few lumps.

Carefully add a little more 7-Up if needed to get the pancake mix to the consistency to pour the pancakes.

Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour the batter onto a pre-heated 350° griddle.  If you are cooking the pancakes in a pan on a burner, use medium heat and a little oil in the pan.  You can tell when the pan is hot enough for the pancakes by putting a few drops of water on the pan.  If the water drops 'dance around,' the pan is ready to cook the pancakes.

Watch your pancakes while they cook.  When the pancakes start getting bubbles that pop, they are ready to turn over.  Only turn the pancakes over once.

Turn the pancakes over and let them cook on the other side until they start to turn a golden brown.

When the pancakes are cooked evenly on both sides, the batter will start to look dry around the edges, remove the pancakes and put them on a plate ready to serve.

Then sit down and have some of the best tasting pancakes ever.  You can top your pancakes with butter, maple syrup, jelly, whipped cream, or even chocolate syrup. Some people even say these pancakes make them think of McDonald's Hot Cakes.  Let me know if you think they taste like McDonald's and how well you did with the 7-Up pancakes.

  1. Cookerella, you are AMAZING! Charlotte and I plan to try this recipe the next time we have brinner (breakfast and dinner) at the Herr house, which we do at least once a week. We'll let you know how it turns out.
