This is a great all-purpose pancake recipe –

try the chocolate swirl variation for a fun treat.

Griddler® Compact position: Flat

Plate side: Griddle

Traditional Pancakes (for griddle)

2             large eggs

1             cup reduced-fat milk

½            teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1¼          cups unbleached, all-purpose flour

1             tablespoon baking powder

1             tablespoon granulated sugar

½            teaspoon table salt

2             tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled



1.  Insert plates on griddle side. Set the Cuisinart®  Griddler®  Compact between Medium and High and preheat.

2.  Put the eggs, milk and vanilla extract into a small bowl and whisk to blend until smooth; reserve.  Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a separate, medium bowl.  Stir with a whisk to blend.  Add the egg/milk mixture and stir until just blended. Stir in the melted, cooled butter.  Do not over-mix.

3.  Open preheated unit to extend flat.  Using a ¼-cup measure, drop batter onto preheated griddle.  Cook pancakes until bubbles form, about 2 minutes; flip and cook until done, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer to warm plates to serve.  As you finish each batch of pancakes, you can keep them warm on a wire rack placed on a baking sheet in a low oven (200°F).  Repeat until all the batter is used.


Chocolate Swirl pancakes: Prepare batter as above, adding an extra ¼ cup of milk.  Pour about ¼ of the batter into a separate mixing bowl and whisk in 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder and ¹⁄³ cup melted semisweet chocolate chips.

Once griddle is hot, drop plain batter onto griddle using ¼-cup measure. Immediately drop dollops of the chocolate batter on top center of plain batter in 1 teaspoon amounts.  Swirl chocolate into regular batter using either the teaspoon itself or a wooden toothpick to create different swirls and designs.

Cook as above, about 2 minutes per side, flipping once bubbles form and pop.


Servings: Makes about sixteen 4-inch pancakes
