Pancake Noodles on the Blackstone at Camp

My kids love eating pancakes any morning, but they especially love pancakes while camping. And their favorite way to eat pancakes at camp is in noodle form or what they call pancake noodles. Cooking a batch of pancake noodles is easy and faster than standard pancakes. Here’s how we cook pancake noodles on the Blackstone at camp.

Step 1: Make Batter

I like to start inside the trailer. First I get a bowl ready and a measuring cup and pour three cups of batter into the bowl. We use Kodiak Cakes mix. It isn’t as sweet as regular pancakes, but it has lots of protein and my kids love this stuff.

After the pancake mix is in the bowl, we add the same amount of water, so I’ll add three cups of water to the bowl, then take a whisk and stir until there are no more clumps. Remember to scrape the sides. A lot of the batter collects on the sides of these collapsible bowls, and you don’t want any clumps to get stuck in the lid of the squirt bottle.

Step 2: Pour Batter into Bottle

Once it’s all stirred together, you’re ready to put the batter into a large squirt bottle. So we use this extra large 32 ounce Blackstone bottle so that we could fit the entire batch into one bottle. To move the batter over I like to use a funnel. It makes the process super quick and easy. Once the funnel is in place, pour the bowl of batter into the bottle. Once it’s all in the bottle, you can put the lid on it and the entire three cups of batter with three cups of water fits nicely in this bottle.

Step 3: Rinse Dishes

Before you go outside to cook, take a minute to rinse off the bowl and the funnel. I just fill it with water and then let it soak in the sink so the batter doesn’t cake on there while I’m outside cooking.

Step 4: Pre-heat Blackstone & Slice Butter

Now you’re ready to go outside and cook. Preheat the griddle on low heat.

Pre-slice several chunks of butter so you can throw butter on the griddle when you need it.

Step 5: Melt Butter and Add Batter to Grill

Take some butter and melt it on the griddle, so there’s a layer all around.

Now you’re ready to add some pancake batter. So take your pancake batter squirt bottle, and squirt out lines of pancake batter over the entire grill. It doesn’t matter if the lines break and you do want to leave some space between the rows so they don’t all clump together.

Step 6: Flip Pancake Noodles

These will cook fast. It will only take a couple of minutes. Once they start to firm up, take a spatula and flip every row. They will break apart when you do this, which is expected and desired. They need to be smaller chunks to make it easier to eat. So this is not a problem. Let the other side cook for a minute, and when both sides look good, they can be moved to make room for more.

Step 7: Transfer Cooked Pieces

My favorite place to keep them while cooking more is in a steam table pan that I keep directly on the griddle. I make sure it’s on low heat and I put the cooked pieces right in there. Every time I add more, I just stir it real quick so the bottom pieces don’t get too crispy. This works great. It’s easy to move the pieces into here, and it keeps everything warm, so it lets us all be able to eat together when we’re finished.

We used to just move the cooked pieces to a plate and cover it with foil. This worked okay but the top layer would get soggy from condensation. The steam table pan system works much better.

Step 8: Repeat the Process

Now the pan will take up some space on the Blackstone, but it isn’t much and I feel it’s well worth it. Just add butter to the rest of the surface and squirt your pancake batter out around the steam table pan. After it’s cooked for a few minutes, flip it over and then add it to the warming pan. Stir the cooked pancake noodles in the pan and then keep repeating this process.

This process is faster on the 22 inch Blackstone, but even with the larger griddle, you still repeat this process about eight or nine times before the batter is gone.

Step 9: Rinse Squire Bottle

When you’re out of batter, before you sit down and eat, take a second and rinse out or start soaking the squirt bottle and lid. The lid can be really difficult to clean if the batter dries in there. Even if you just drop the lid in some water to soak while you eat this will save you a lot of time later.

Step 10: Remove Pancake Noodles & Clean Grill

Now pull the pancake noodles off the Blackstone. Make sure you have somewhere to set the pan. I like to have a cooling rack available.

Before we go eat I like to take a second just to clean up the grill real fast. All I do is squirt some water on it and then wipe it down using a paper towel and tongs. Then I add a little bit of oil and spread that around. Now it’s good and the pancake noodles are all ready to be served.

Serve & Enjoy

To serve pancake noodles, we like to use bowls, so we just scoop some into a bowl and then pour some syrup on top. Instead of cutting pancakes, you just eat the noodles like you would eat pasta.

This is a fun twist on regular pancakes that makes camping that much more exciting for the kids, and as long as you soak or rinse the cookware right away, then both cooking and cleanup is super simple.

  1. Make pancake batter by mixing an equal amount of pancake mix and water in a bowl. We use 3 cups of Kodiak Cakes pancake mix with 3 cups of water. Stir with a whisk until there are no clumps.
  2. Using a funnel, pour batter into a large squirt bottle.
  3. Rinse or soak the bowl and funnel to save yourself time later.
  4. Pre-heat the Blackstone on low heat and pre-slice some chunks of butter.
  5. Melt butter on the griddle and add pancake batter. Squirt the batter out in rows. It’s okay if there are gaps. Try to keep a little space between the rows so they don’t clump together.
  6. After about 2 minutes they should be firm. Using a spatula flip over the noodles. They will break apart, which is expected and desired. Let the other side cook for another minute.
  7. Transfer the cooked pieces to a steam table pan. Keep the steam table pan directly on the Blackstone. Make sure it is over a burner set to low.
  8. Repeat the process until the batter is gone. Add more butter, then add the batter, the flip the batter, then scoop into the warming tray. Stir the cooked noodles in the pan so the ones on the bottom don’t get too crispy.
  9. When the batter is gone rinse or soak the squirt bottle. The lid gets very difficult to clean if the batter dries in it. So even if you just drop the lid in a bowl of water this will save you tons of time later.
  10. Remove the pancake noodles from the griddle and clean the Blackstone.
  11. Serve the pancake noodles by scooping into bowls and topping with syrup. Enjoy!
