What You’ll Need


1 ½ cups Flour

6 Eggs, lightly beaten

16 oz. Cottage Cheese

2 tbsp. Butter, melted

½ tsp. Salt

1 tsp. Baking Powder

1 tbsp. Baking Soda

2 tbsp. Honey

2 tsp. Vanilla

1 tsp. Lemon Zest

Blueberries (optional)

Strawberries (optional)

Pancake Syrup

2 tbsp. Butter, melted

1 cup Whipping Cream

1 cup Sugar

2 tsp Flour



1. Start a fire in your X Series fire and add the Outpost Grill.

2. Begin with the pancake syrup by mixing the melted butter, heavy cream, sugar, and flour in a small pot.

3. Place the syrup mixture on the Outpost grill over medium heat making sure to stir it occasionally.

4. For the pancakes, whisk the eggs into the flour and follow with the cottage cheese. Give the batter another stir.

5. Add the butter, salt, baking soda, baking powder, honey, vanilla, and lemon zest to the batter and stir.

6. Once the syrup is boiling, remove it from the heat, add the vanilla, and let it sit and thicken while the pancakes are cooking.

7. Add the SearPlate Griddle to your setup once a bed of coals has built up in the bottom of your fire pit.

8. Once the griddle is up to temp (350-400°F) you’re ready to get cooking.

Live-Fire Cooking Pro Tip: If you’re not sure if the griddle is hot enough, try a test pancake first.

9. Once you’ve placed the pancakes on the griddle, add blueberries before the first flip.

10. Once the pancakes are fully cooked, top them off with fresh blueberries, strawberries, lemon zest, and of course, your homemade pancake syrup.

Enjoy these pancakes the next morning you find yourself around the fire or even treat yourself to a deliciously sweet dinner. If you give these pancakes a try, show us your result on Facebook and Instagram, we’d love to see it! Happy live-fire cookin’!
