“Easy gaiety, from Party Brunch to Midnight Supper.” Betty Crocker


For spur-of-the-moment entertaining, you really can’t beat these light lacy cakes. Add flair with 1/2 cup chopped nuts, or drained, canned, or frozen berries.

2 cups Bisquick
1 egg
1 2/3 cups milk

Add egg, milk to Bisquick. Beat with rotary beater until smooth. Grease griddle if necessary. Griddle is right when water sprinkled on it jumps around. Turn pancakes when bubbles appear. Makes about 18.

For thinner pancakes: Use 2 cups milk.


Do as above, but use 2 cups Bisquick, 1 1/4 cups milk, 2 eggs, 2 tbsp. melted shortening or cooking (salad) oil. Makes about 12.


Make Bisquick Pancake batter. Brown Spam slices on one side, 2 to 3″ apart; pour batter over browned side. Bake.

Strictly for swank, they star at the fanciest party. Serve from a chafing dish, or your best shallow bowl.

1 cup cottage cheese (small curd)
4-oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 1/2 tbsp. lemon rind
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
10-oz. pkg. frozen strawberries, thawed
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. almond extract

Make six 5″ pancakes using 1 egg, 1 cup milk, 1 cup Bisquick. Beat with rotary beater until smooth. Bake. This can be done ahead. Heat oven to 400° (mod. hot). Whip cheeses, lemon rind, 3 tbsp. lemon juice, sugar until creamy. Place 1/4 cup filling on each pancake; roll up. Put folded side down in 11×7″ baking dish. Heat in oven for 10 min. before serving. Heat strawberries, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, almond extract. Spoon over pancakes. Serve immediately. 6 servings.

To Keep Pancakes Warm

Place pancakes between folds of towel on baking sheet in a slow oven (250°).

FILLED PANCAKES: need not be warm when you fill them, if they are to be reheated (as in the Blintzes, above). Simply place them between towels until ready to use.
