"Batter in a Bag" Pancakes

Build a better breakfast: Elevate your campfire eats with a simple packing tip from The Kitchen.

Episode: Get Out and Cook

For perfect pancakes on the road, just premix the batter at home! Not only will you save yourself the trouble of carting all of the individual ingredients to your camp site, but the road trip allows the batter to rest. Letting the batter relax yields a more tender and fluffy hotcake.

Mix up a boxed mix or make your favorite homemade version. Fill up gallon ziptop bags with the batter and seal them tightly. Store them in a cooler or in the RV fridge until you're ready to use them. When it's time to make the pancakes, simply snip off the corner of a bag and pipe the perfect cakes onto a hot buttered griddle or skillet.
