This little tip gives you a hint of what you need, but let’s dive into the delicious tips and steps to get a fluffy pile of camping pancakes asap.

How To Make Camping Pancakes

The best part about cooking pancakes over an open fire is that you can use any kind of wood you like. It doesn’t matter if it’s pine, oak, cedar, or even hickory. You just have to be careful not to burn yourself.

You can also use charcoal on an open flame as well. If you have an electric griddle, there’s no shame in using those electric hookups and start making pancakes!

Can you make this camping pancake recipe ahead of time?

I’ve made pancakes many times while camping. I usually do one batch and freeze half of it. Then I thaw out what I need for breakfast and dinner the next morning.

Why not make the pancake batter and then pour it into a baking pan and bake it in the oven in your camper? This is most commonly referred to as sheet pan pancakes!

It’s a simple way to make a large batch at once!

DIY Camping Pancakes with an iron skillet and cast-iron griddle

Cooking over a camp stove is going to provide you with the best crust and flavor. The key is that you want a hot pan on a chilly morning to make the perfect pancake recipe.

A cast-iron skillet over hot coals is my personal preference, but you can get those crispy edges. Having a hot cooking surface is key.

To make camp pancakes quickly, you can also use a store-bought pancake mix. A store-bought mix just saves you time on having to make homemade pancakes because the pre-made pancake mix is fast and simple. You literally usually just have to add water or milk. (talk about a short ingredient list!)

Don’t forget to add additional ingredients! This easy recipe proves that a gourmet breakfast doesn’t have to be hard at all. You can use whole wheat flour or almond flour to create your own pancake mix.

How do I get Thicker Pancake Batter?

Once you have the wet mixture, you can add a tad bit more flour into it to make it thicker.

How do I thin out pancake batter?

You can use water, milk, or even almond milk to thin out the pancake batter.

how do I get fluffier pancakes?

You can add a little bit of baking soda to your dry mix to make them fluffier.

Can I make waffles instead?

You bet. This simple recipe makes the best waffle mix, too. This might be a camping pancake mix, but you can use the thick batter to make a large batch of waffles!

Are there other cooking methods to consider?

Making a batch of pancakes can be done on any safe heat source! For better temperature control, you can use a griddle or a pan to get that golden brown color.

Cooking over open flames might be a bit more difficult, but it’s worth it for that flavor!

What are some other camping recipes for cooking pancakes?

The good part about making other flavors of pancakes is that you can add ingredients to the dry mixture and make new tastes.

You can add peanut butter for flavor, oats for texture, and even some chocolate chips for sugar. If you want to add cinnamon and other warm spices, you can make some pretty dang delicious pancakes as well!

For a special treat, create a second side of sausage or eggs to really complete the meal.

What are your favorite pancake toppings?

I’m all about fresh strawberries, fresh berries, whipped cream that’s a mile high, and any type of fresh fruit.

Equipment for Pancakes for Camping

To mix together the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients together, you’ll need a large bowl. I also like to use a spatula, and I always bring a skillet or two.

Make sure that you bring an airtight container so that you can store your leftover fluffy pancake for later!

Get ready for your next adventure. It’s time to make your own pancakes and keep them on your list of great camping food ideas.
