How to Make Best Fluffy Pancakes
The secret of fluffy fluffy pancakes is the batter. If the pancake batter is runny, pancakes will spread out in the pan and won’t fluff up. On the other hand, if the batter is too thick, you are most likely will end with undercooked pancakes.
Perfect Pancake Batter Consistency
To check the consistency of the batter, do the test with a spoon. Simply spoon some batter and pour it into the bowl. The batter should be THICK but be able to run off the spoon slowly.
Many people asked me how to mix pancake batter without lumps. Guys, some lumps are fine! But to avoid them, make sure you sift your flour. Also don’t use a spoon for mixing. I highly recommend to resort to a wire whisk to get a smooth pancake batter.
Another key to smooth texture is the temperature of your ingredients. Bring them to room temperature before adding to the batter.
How to Make Perfect Pancakes
It is actually a 3 step easy process.
- First, mix all dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Combine wet ingredients with dry ones.
- Cook pancakes using a non-stick pan.
How to Cook Pancakes
Preheat a non-stick pan/ griddle over medium heat. Spill little water onto the pan to check if the surface is hot. The water will sizzle once it is ready. Reduce the heat to low-medium. Spray the pan with a non-stick spray or lightly grease with some butter. Remove excess butter with a paper towel.
Pour ¼ cup of batter into the pan (use a measuring spoon or cup to get pancakes of the same size).
HOW LONG TO COOK PANCAKES ON EACH SIZE
Cook pancakes until you see that bubbles start forming and popping on the surface, it means they are ready to flip. Flip using a spatula or a fork. The whole process takes about 1-2 minutes.
HOW TO FLIP A PANCAKE
The best tool for flipping pancakes perfectly is a large spatula. If you don’t have any, but you love pancakes and you cook them frequently, I highly recommend to purchase one. Ideally it should be big enough to cover most of the pancake. Flip when you see bubbles popping not only around the sides but throughout the pancake.
