Cowboy Flapjacks

Cowboy Flapjack Recipe

For those for whom "Cowboy Coffee" is not enough for breakfast, we proudly present our recipe for cowboy flapjacks.

Flapjacks are a staple of the wild west, both then and now. They are known by a variety of names like pancake, hotcake, or griddle cake.

These are great cooked in a cast iron skillet over a campfire, but you can do in your kitchen in a pinch. Flapjacks are not just for breakfast anymore. Feel free to enjoy for dinner too.

Feeds 5 - 6 cowboys, or 10 -12 civilians.


  • 2 cups flour (we recommend all-purpose, wheat, or a combo).
  • 4 Tbs sugar.
  • 2 tsp baking powder.
  • 6 Tbs melted butter.
  • 1 1/2 cups milk.
  • 1/2 tsp salt.
  • 2 eggs.


  1. Preheat skillet.
  2. Combine dry ingredients.
  3. Combine wet ingredients and mix well.
  4. Add wet ingredients to the dry.
  5. Mix to combine, but do not overdo it. Batter will be somewhat lumpy.
  6. Drop a 1/4 of a cup, or so of batter in your skillet and cook until small bubbles appear on the surface and the bottom is light brown.
  7. Serve with butter and maple syrup. For variety, try with your favorite homemade jam in place of syrup.
