Pancakes on a Camping Stove

You will need:

  • all-purpose flour1 cup all-purpose flour
  • sugar2 tablespoons sugar
  • baking powder1 teaspoon baking powder
  • baking soda1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • salt1/4 teaspoon salt
  • buttermilk3/4 cup buttermilk
  • milk1/4 cup milk
  • egg1 egg
  • unsalted butter2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • cooking sprayCooking spray for greasing
  • maple syrup and fresh fruitsMaple syrup and fresh fruits for serving


  1. First, take a large bowl and add 1 cup of all-purpose flour. To this, add 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Mix these dry ingredients together until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine your wet ingredients. This includes 3/4 cup of buttermilk, 1/4 cup of milk, 1 egg, and 2 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter. Whisk these ingredients together until they are fully blended.
  3. Now, pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir these together, but be careful not to overmix. The batter should be slightly lumpy - this will give your pancakes a great texture.
  4. Next, heat your camping stove to a medium heat. Once it's heated, spray your pan with a good amount of cooking spray to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan for each pancake. Let them cook until you see bubbles forming on the surface. This is your sign to flip the pancakes over and let them cook on the other side until they are a golden brown color.
  6. Finally, serve your pancakes with a generous drizzle of maple syrup and a side of fresh fruits. This is a delicious and hearty breakfast that will give you the energy you need for a day of camping.


You can prepare the dry ingredients at home and store in a ziplock bag to make the process easier at the campsite. Also, feel free to add in extras like chocolate chips or blueberries to the batter.
