Making these fluffy pancakes is really easy and hassle-free. Sharing all the tips and secrets to the best pancake recipe!

  • Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Then combine the wet ingredients with the dry. Mix until flour is incorporated.
  • Don’t overbeat the pancake batter. The batter should be smooth but will still have some lumps. Overbeating the batter will overdevelop gluten resulting in a flat and tough pancake.
  • Allow pancake batter to rest a few minutes after mixing the batter, allowing the gluten that was activated time to rest.
  • Be sure the skillet isn’t too hot. Heat the skillet then turn down to medium heat. Medium heat will allow the pancake to cook through and not burn the pancake.
  • A combination of butter and oil for greasing the pan results in best pancakes.
  • Don’t flip pancakes frequently. Once tops of pancakes start to bubble and burst, the pancake is ready to be flipped.
  • Clean the skillet after EACH batch! This will save you from burnt pancakes.
  • NOTE: A GRIDDLE works great for making pancakes.
  • NOTE: If you are making pancakes for an event and want uniform pancakes, this pancake mold is perfect for this purpose.
