Carbquick pancakes

I made my husband and I our first pancakes from Carbquick, using the recipe on the box. They tasted good, but they were kind of weird. Like airy, or maybe to eggy, and not much substance at all. Is that normal for this?
Having said that though, I didn't want to make a full recipe because there are just two of us, so I halved the recipe. How to you half one egg?? I didn't use all the yolk, or the white. I also wanted to use up the almond milk we had, so I used that instead of the cream and water. Could this be why there was no substance to the pancake?
I also wondered if it always thins out like that when heated? The batter was rather thick, but when it hit the pan, it flattened a lot and didn't rise much.

Okay, after 3 days, 249 views and no replies, I am assuming that no one has ever made the pancake recipe on the Carbquick box.

Has anyone ever made *any* recipes off the box? Did they turn out?

I am sorry. I have not tried the recipe. As for using 1/2 an egg, I have seen recipes where the author has you beat the egg white and yolk together, and then use half of that mixture. I don't know why it's so thin. Do you have coconut flour or almond flour to add to the pancake recipe? I think you would only need a teaspoon or 2 of coconut flour to make it denser. I would use 1-2 Tbs of almond flour. You could also add protein powder.

Well the batter was quite dense and thick, yet when I put it in the pan, it thinned out to twice the size. Do you think adding the coconut flour would still help?

Yes. I'm guessing, of course. But usually when something thins out too much, it needs more flour or thickener.

it's been a while since I've made pancakes using carbquik. I have made them according to the package directions, as well as substituting heavy cream and/or almond milk instead of the water . I would also use davinci's "pancake" syrup in the batter for some of the liquid in the recipe. it really depended on what I had available.

because I don't have a griddle, I made the pancake in the oven using a glass pie plate. it came out nice and fluffy. I used half of the recipe. I had to spread it out but it looked nice when it came out of the oven.

I baked it at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

I thought it tasted just like the bisquik pancakes my mom used to make.

Hi,

I have never made the pancakes either. I just got my box and have only made biscuits. I liked them but hubs thought they tasted funny so I haven't tried anything else. I'll try them out in the next few days while hubs is away. Stay tuned.

I make pancakes with Carbquik, but I don't use the recipe on the box. Not sure where I got this recipe, but I really like these.

1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Carbquick
1 Tbs. half & half
¼ tsp. baking powder
½ Tbsp. oil
1/8 tsp. salt
½ tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. Splenda
1 egg

Mix all ingredients well in a small bowl with a whisk.
Fry in a heated greased skillet till golden brown.

Never made the pancakes,but make the box recipe for biscuits a lot and it's excellent. I've used an egg for other recipes that call for 1/2 egg without any significant problems. I'd try the recipe again exactly as it is on the box and see what you think. Freeze leftovers for future breakfasts. Good luck.

Here's one that's good. I had to search for it. It's from a poster here on LCF. Note, I do not get 12 pancakes from it. Those would have to be pretty small ones. I found it in 11/12 and it's the one I use when we have them.

Carbquik Puff Pancakes - LCF, lgpars

2 eggs
1 cup Carb Countdown 2% OR half hwc and half water
2 1/3 cups Carbquik
2 tablespoons Splenda bulk
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Beat eggs with electric beater until thick and creamy. This takes a few minutes, but it is important.

Blend in milk; add Carbquik and Splenda. Mix just until thoroughly dampened.

Fold in oil. Spoon onto medium-hot ungreased griddle.

When puffed up, and bubbles begin to break, flip over and bake on other side.

Makes about 15-20 small pancakes.


Note: I made half the recipe and got 12 pancakes, between 3 and 4" in diameter.
