Neapolitan Pancakes

Neapolitan Pancakes

Neapolitan (chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla) is one of my favorite flavors of ice cream so I thought I would try making my kids pancakes using those flavors. I normally whip up a batch of healthy pancakes using yogurt and whole wheat flour but I had hungry kids who wanted breakfast immediately so I used a pancake mix (Bisquick). I added some vanilla bean to the batter, then fresh strawberries and chocolate chips were added to the pancakes while they were cooking. These pancakes were a snap to make and my kids LOVED them – they gobbled up every single last bite.

Neapolitan Pancakes:


  • 2 cups of pancake mix (I used Bisquick)
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • Strawberries, diced into small pieces
  • Milk chocolate chips

How to Make Neapolitan Pancakes

Combine the pancake mix, milk, and egg together in a bowl. Slice the vanilla bean down the center then using the dull side of the knife, scrape all the seeds out of each side of the bean. Add the seeds to the pancake batter.

Pour about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto a hot nonstick griddle or skillet. Top each pancake with pieces of strawberry and chocolate chips.

  2. Those really look something different. Sure the kids enjoyed them. Diane

  3. Wow – that looks good and save the bean, I have everything on hand for them including fresh picked berries.

  4. What a GREAT idea. I've made pancakes individually flavored with vanilla, chocolate chips and strawberries. However, I never thought to combine the three.

    Thanks for sharing, Pam. Now, I want Neapolitan pancakes…

  5. These look SO fluffy and fabulous!! I would love to make these on the weekeknds for guests – how impressive!

  6. Until I saw this beautiful dish, I had forgotten that the ice cream my parents most liked to buy when I was a kid was in fact "Neapolitan." (I was a kid a very long time ago.)

    Nice work, as usual.

  7. I love neopolitan ice cream as well. Strawberry has always been a favorite flavor of mine.

    The pancakes sound great and are a nice reinvention to your favorite ice cream flavor.

  8. Sometimes, easy trumps healthy, and I don't really think bisquick is that bad. It does make some pretty awesome tasting foods, after all! These pancakes look wonderful; great idea!

  9. that picture of the pancakes with the chocolate chips and strawberries about to be flipped just about made me giddy! what a great idea!
