Homemade Pancakes in the Instant Pot

Homemade pancakes in the Instant Pot? Yep. It’s happening. Homemade pancakes are often on the menu come Saturday and Sunday, but it can be a struggle to actually sit down all together to eat. Someone is always left “manning” the griddle. If you prefer the traditional stovetop/griddle version, have no fear, we included directions for that cooking method also.

Homemade Pancakes

We’re obsessed with pancakes and will eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We are super picky however therefore only eat homemade pancakes. We find restaurant pancakes dense and/or laden with weird flavors or flour mixes. Some of us still eat gluten so stop using weird flour mixes! #rantover #welovegluten

For this homemade pancakes recipe, we’re using the cool silicone mold we use for our Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites. We’re always trying to find new uses for existing kitchen gear vs having to shell out more cash for something that probably takes up a ton of kitchen space.  If you don’t have the silicone mold, you can always use Ball 4 oz Mason Jars or the individual silicon egg molds I know many of you own. Just make sure you’re utilizing the same amount of batter to ensure the cooking time is correct. If you’re using more batter per pancake, you’ll need to increase your cooking time.

Since we know many of you will ask, yes you can stack the trays if you have two. Just make sure to double the recipe below!

Homemade Pancakes

  • Can I Use Bisquick? We did a few Bisquick test runs, as we envisioned offering up two pancake recipes (homemade and mix), however the Bisquick left us with super heavy, dense pancakes. We love a good Bisquick pancake so we’re bummed with the results.
  • Don’t care for blueberries? Leave them out or add any other fruits/toppings you like. Bananas or raspberries would be awesome.
  • You do not need to spray the silicone with cooking spray….when inverted all you need to do is gently press the flat part of the bottom of the tray to release.
  • Optional- add a few tablespoons of maple syrup to give it a nice maple flavor.
  • Don’t have a “cake” setting on your Instant Pot? Just use the pressure cooking (high) setting.

  5. Gently add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until just combined (there will be lumps).
  6. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  7. Divide the mixture equally into the silicone tray. Each should be about 3/4 of the way full.

  14. NPR for 2-3 minutes and then QR.
  15. Remove the silicone tray from the Instant Pot and turn out on a flat surface. To help with removal, press the flat part on the bottom of the trays vs squeezing the sides.
