Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
If you are looking for a quick easy breakfast that doesn’t require oven space or even more dishes for this busy day, try making individual pancakes in the microwave! All you do is mix up some Bisquick in the bottom of a mason jar and microwave it. Make sure that you only fill it to 1/3 of the jar so that it has room to rise. In a pint jar, it took 90 seconds to cook. Every microwave may be a little different so just watch it the first time around.
When its done, use a butter knife to test that it is cooked through. *Dip it all the way to the bottom and if it comes off clean, its done.
Then, put butter and syrup on top and it will sink down the hole made by testing it.
Add THE BEST Real Maple Syrup and dig in! Yum!

what size mason jar do you use?
Good question Suzanne. I used a pint jar. -Ali
There are 2 reasons why I like and will absolutely try thus recipe – I love mason jars and I’m not sure if they are microwaveable (I know this now haha) and I’m kinda bored with the usual pancake. Thanks for the recipe.
Could this be baked in an oven instead of the microwave? I have been reading a lot of how bad the microwave cooking is for us, so I am trying not to use it.
I am sure you could, but for the energy and time you may be better off using a skillet. I don’t like to heat up my oven in the summer when I don’t have to. Great question.
“All you do is mix up some Bisquick in the bottom of a mason jar.” . . . well I cannot mix a batch (milk, eggs etc) in a pint jar :-0 a cut down recipe would have been nice.
You could always try and use pancake batter that only uses water. Bisquick is a brand that makes you use eggs and etc, but there are other brands that don’t require that. This way all you have to do is pour a little water into the mix at a time until you get the consistency you’re looking for.
