Recipe Ingredients

Instant Pot Pancake ingredients

All-purpose flour - This is the main type of flour that I use while baking. If you have another favorite, you can use that. 

Baking powder - Gives the pancakes a boost of fluffiness! 

White sugar - Added for sweetness. 

Salt - Just a pinch. 

Egg - Used as the binding agent to hold the pancake batter together. 

Milk - Helps to thin out the batter so it's not so thick. 

Butter - You can use salted or unsalted butter. 

Maple syrup - Honey would work well also.

Recipe Notes

  • I like to use aluminum-free baking powder because it tends to have fewer clumps.
  • When the pancake batter starts to bubble in the Instant Pot, that's your cue to flip them to the other side.
  • Make sure that you don't overcrowd the pancakes. If you add too many to the bottom of the Instant Pot, it gets really hard to flip them.

Recipe FAQs

Can I store cooked pancakes in the freezer?

Yes, baking a large batch of pancakes and then freezing them is a great way to meal prep.

You can even store them in individual serving bags in the freezer so that you can pull out a few and thaw them when you want to eat them.

Can I make these pancakes gluten free?

You can make them gluten free. Just use gluten free flour and any other gluten free ingredients and enjoy.

Why are my pancakes gooey in the center?

If you have gooey pancakes, they're not cooked all the way. You need to make sure that you allow enough cooking time so that you don't have raw pancake batter.
