McDonalds Pancake Recipe – Great Freezer Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Breakfast will be a huge hit when you make this McDonalds Pancake Recipe. This is the best pancake recipe!

 

We love pancakes. Sometimes we like to go to McDonald’s for breakfast and get a McDonalds Big Breakfast. And other times we like to make pancakes at home.

 

For the longest time, I could not make pancakes! They would not fluff up or they would be raw inside. I was so happy when this recipe worked and tasted so good! 

 

 

 

 

This is our family’s favorite recipe. It really reminds us of McDonalds Pancakes. My kids love them. Sometimes I add some sausage patties and hashbrowns and my kids think it is the best breakfast ever! 

 

I love that this recipe makes so many fluffy pancakes and we freeze them so we have pancakes for a few days. 

 

 

 

They are much easier to heat up than to make a new batch every day! Then you just pop them in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and enjoy. 

 

When you make this recipe for McDonalds Pancake Recipe, it is much cheaper and tastes better than store-bought frozen pancakes.

 

Plus I don’t need to get up early and get out of my pajamas for us to enjoy a delicious breakfast! 

 

What are some other ways that you enjoy eating your pancakes? Here are a few more creative ways to enjoy pancakes! 

Sprinkles! If you are making these pancakes for a birthday celebration you can top them with sprinkles and whipped cream. 

 

Real maple syrup and a pat of butter make these pancakes extra rich and delicious. These thick and fluff pancakes absorb these delicious toppings. 

 

Bacon! I haven’t tried this but I have seen people put a piece of cooked bacon on the griddle and then cover it with pancake batter and let it cook. Some people love the combination of bacon and syrup. (I am not one of those people!) 

 

Add some berries. When we go out to eat my daughter loves to get some strawberries with whipped cream with her pancakes. Sometimes they make them look like a Mickey face! You could even add some bananas. 

 

Use different syrups! They make so many different kinds of syrups. So grab something other than butter or maple-flavored syrup. I love to go to iHop and try out the strawberry and blueberry syrup. Oh and I love the buttered pecan syrup! 

 

So now you have the best recipe for fluffy and light pancakes and a ton of ways to enjoy them. Make sure you leave me a comment and tell me your favorite way to enjoy pancakes! 

 

 

So gather up all these Mcdonald’s pancakes ingredients and make your family an amazing and delicious breakfast in your kitchen!

It makes me sad that people think that these are similar to McDonalds. Why? They are really Thick and really heavy and not at all spongy. A McDonald’s hotcake is very thin and very light and extremely spongy, that’s what makes them so unique. Most copycat recipes have Sprite in them to try to help make the batter fizzy to create the lightness and the bubbles that make them spongy. This batter was really thick and heavy which makes the pancakes dense and thick. I don’t think the taste was that similar. If it was just a regular pancake recipe I wouldn’t really have any problems with it at all. They were pretty good, definitely a different texture than any pancake I’ve ever had. Nothing remotely like the texture of a McDonald’s hotcake though. I’m curious if next time I do half as much milk and the rest with Sprite and add some extra liquid to make the batter thinner so they’re not so thick and dense. I don’t think there’s a copycat recipe out there that comes close to them to be fair. There’s probably some kind of bizarre chemical leavening ingredient in them or something that gives them that texture.

Thank you for the recipe - I have not made them yet but can't wait to try them because I love McDonald's pancakes!

I am curious if you have ever made them with buttermilk for family who like fluffier pancakes.

Been making only these the past couple years and leave the salt out.

I use 3 cups flour and use 3 tablespoons baking powder and 6 tablespoons of sugar 6 tablespoons of vegetable oil 3 eggs 3 cups milk all mixed together makes 11 pancakes that absolutely freeze well, reheat for about a minute in the microwave after add lots of butter and syrup. Very close if not identical to McDonald’s pancakes as for taste. I use a complete 1/2 measuring cup for each pancake cooked for 5mins one side and about 3 mins the other side cooked about medium to low or on number 4 burner on my stove.

I may just double this recipe some day and make a ton of these. They absolutely freeze exceptionally well and reheat super easy. We love these!!

Do not change the recipe as in adding vanilla extract as some in other reviews mention, I tried that thinking it would be great but it actually kind of ruins them and changes the taste.

Usually one or 2 pancakes is plenty even for a guy with a giant appetite.

Great with eggs and bacon or served with maple sausage. Highly recommended this recipe!! Enjoy!!

I'm so glad you liked them!! I love to make a big batch when I have milk that is about to expire and then freeze the pancakes.
