4 cups Bisquick or Jiffy baking mix
3 jumbo eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups club soda, room temperature
1/4 cup melted vegetable shortening or margarine, room temperature
vegetable oil


Place the dry pancake mix into a large bowl. Add the eggs, club soda and melted margarine. Use a wire whisk to mix carefully until there are no lumps (don't be vigorous). Allow the batter to rest while you preheat your griddle or skillet over medium-high heat.

Use about 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in the preheated skillet for each pancake; use 1/2 cup batter for each pancake. Flip pancake only once when you see open bubbles appear on the surface and the edges appear dry around the pancake.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating

Just by looking at the photo you can see how light and fluffy these pancakes are. Taste and texture were excellent. The club soda is the key for really fluffy pancakes and this recipe does not disappoint. I found that 1/2 cup of batter made really huge pancakes so I used a 1/3 cup measure and that worked better I thought.

Nice and fluffly! I added a little almond extract to kick up the flavor... Yum!

I vaguely remember Perkins' pancakes, and these seemed pretty close to the same. They really were light and fluffy and good. I served myself too big of a stack, though, and got stuffed!

Not so sure these were Perkins style (closer to IHOPactually) but these pancakes were incredibly good. Very fluffy and filling. Eight thumbs up from our family of four!!!

So, I love waffles. I mean, I make them all the time, usually from scratch. Decided to try this "copy cat" recipe and see how they were. I was floored that they tasted just as good, if not better, than some I make totally from scratch. Nice to know I can get my waffle fix in even easier form when I need it! I agree that the club soda is key. You find it in a lot of recipes for both pancakes and waffles. I wouldn't have thought to use it with a mix though so kudos on the great recipe!

Club soda is one of those cooking secrets that turn blah waffles into brilliant waffles! The beauty is you're using a mix in this recipe but you can't tell. They taste like they are totally from scratch.

Very good pancakes. These are very fluffy and 1/2 cup of the batter makes really good sized pancakes. I made up some large ones and then some silver dollar sized.

Not exactly like Perkins but excellent pancakes, nonetheless. I made these exactly as the recipe said, but I used a nonstick griddle so I didn't use the oil. They have a very light texture, which was what we loved about them. Would definitely recommend.

I LOVE Perkins pancakes, so when I found this recipe I was pretty excited to try it. I only had Sprite (for my soda), so I used it. I used softened butter instead of shortning (recipe) and oil (cooking). These are excellent! Thanks!
