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.

- 4 Tbs sugar.
- 2 tsp baking powder.
- 6 Tbs melted butter.
- 1 1/2 cups milk.
- 1/2 tsp salt.
- 2 eggs.
- Preheat skillet.
- Combine dry ingredients.
- Combine wet ingredients and mix well.
- Add wet ingredients to the dry.
- Mix to combine, but do not overdo it. Batter will be somewhat lumpy.
- 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.
- Serve with butter and maple syrup. For variety, try with your favorite homemade jam in place of syrup.
