  • Enjoy!!

Tips

  • Don’t overmix the batter. Doing so can make your pancakes tough.
  • Let the batter rest for a few minutes before adding to the frying pan.
  • Make your pancakes smaller in size, so that they are easier to flip.
  • If you have an old box of pancake mix that has been sitting for a while, it would be best to add some extra baking powder to it. This will ensure that your pancakes don’t turn out flat.

How Do You Know When Pancakes Are Ready To Flip?

After you add the pancake batter to the frying pan, you will notice bubbles forming.

You need to wait until the bubbles pop and you see them forming holes that stay open. Then you will know that the pancakes are ready to flip over.

Can I Make The Batter In Advance?

It is not recommended to make the batter ahead of time.

Making your pancakes right away will provide a much fluffier and lighter pancake.

Freezing Pancakes

You can freeze the pancakes and it is an easy process. To freeze the pancakes you will need to cook them first.

After cooking you need to let them cool down.

When they are cooled down you can then freeze the pancakes by placing them on a baking sheet and freezing them. After they are frozen then you can transfer the pancakes to freezer bags.

Another option is to use parchment paper in-between the pancakes. Then place them in freezer bags and freeze them that way.

Pancake Topping Ideas

The best thing about pancakes is they are versatile and taste great with a variety of different toppings.

Here are some ideas:

You can’t go wrong with any type of fruit. I like to add strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or bananas to the top of my pancakes.

Any type of syrup goes great on top of pancakes. Also, you can use chocolate or caramel.

Another idea is to top with peanut butter, butter, nuts, chocolate chips, sprinkles, or yogurt.

Conclusion

This pancake recipe is easy to make with only a few simple ingredients needed.

It makes the perfect breakfast recipe for busy mornings.
