How to Make Pancakes in a Microwave Oven

Three Methods:

Do you know what to make for breakfast, but cannot use the stove? Follow these step-by-step instructions to make pancakes in a microwave oven.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 5 tablespoons (100g) plain flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive/vegetable oil (optional)
  • Pinch of salt, to taste (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (optional); for a sweeter pancake, mix maple syrup into the batter

Steps

Cooking Pancakes on a Plate

  1. Mix flour, egg, butter, and milk.Whisk the egg and half the milk in a bowl. Gradually add the flour to make a smooth, thick batter. Beat throughout until there are no more lumps, then add the remaining milk. It's important that your batter is quite thick so that the mixture doesn't run everywhere.
  2. Cover a plate in butter to keep the pancake from sticking.A thin coat should suffice, but use more if you like. You may also consider using margarine, olive/vegetable oil, or a non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Pour about 3/4 cup of pancake mix onto the plate.The size of the pancake depends on the size of your plate, but be aware that larger pancakes will take longer to cook.
  4. Put the plate in the microwave for 60 seconds.Adjust the time if you know that your microwave is particularly weak or strong. If the pancake is still runny, heat it for another ten seconds, but don't go overboard. There's no grill involved, so your pancake won't brown. If you do overcook your pancake, it will become dry, not burned.
  5. Repeat to make more.Place the cooked pancake onto a clean plate. If the cooking plate is still well-greased with butter, then pour another dollop of pancake batter onto the first plate. If not, then spread more butter as needed to ensure that the next pancake doesn't stick. Cook the second pancake for one minute or until it is no longer runny. Repeat until you have as many pancakes as you want.

Making Pancakes in a Mug

  1. Consider making your pancakes in mugs.The cooking time is the same as when cooking with a plate. It will be easier to make a lot of pancakes quickly using a plate, but a mug can give you a novel, single-serving pancake.
  2. Fill a mug about 1/4 or 1/3 full with flour or pre-prepared pancake mix.Pour water into the mug (about half a mug's worth) until the mixture becomes a paste of medium thickness. Mix with a teaspoon until the consistency is smooth. You can add more water if the mixture is too thick, and more flour/pancake mix if the mixture is too thin.
  3. Put the mug in the microwave for about 90 seconds.The pancake is fully cooked when there is no runny mixture left in the mug. If the mix is still runny, then microwave the mug for 30 seconds longer.
  4. Pour toppings directly into the mug, then eat with a fork.When your mug pancake is thoroughly cooked, it is ready to eat. Drizzle syrup, sugar, or butter into the mug, and enjoy!

Serving Microwave Pancakes

  1. Put toppings on your pancake.If you have a sweet tooth, choose sugar, syrup, Nutella, and/or whipped cream. Spread your pancake with butter for a rich but simple meal. Consider ham, cheese, and other savory toppings for a heartier pancake experience.
  2. Consider microwaving bacon to accompany your pancake.To cook bacon in the microwave, lay two paper towels on a plate. Place the bacon strips across the plate and add another paper towel on top. Blast your bacon for three and a half minutes and you've got a meaty pancake topping.

    Yes. Some toppings, such as chocolate chips, could melt during the process - but it'll still work and taste good.

    No, a microwave heats things up from all sides at once, unlike a pan that only heats the bottom.
