The Secret to Perfect Pancakes Every Time


The secret to perfect pancakes every time is no secret at all. This classic breakfast favorite has been around for centuries and with the right ingredients and techniques, it’s easy to make perfect pancakes at home.

First, start with your ingredients. The foundation of perfect pancakes is a good quality flour. All-purpose flour is best for pancakes, but you can experiment with whole wheat flour if you like. Use a whisk to mix together the dry ingredients, including flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients, such as eggs, milk, and melted butter or oil. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until the batter is just combined. Don’t overmix or the pancakes will be tough.

Next, it’s time to cook! Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat and brush with butter or oil. Pour or scoop the batter onto the hot griddle. Pancakes should be about 4-6 inches in diameter. When the edges of the pancakes start to look dry and the bubbles on top start to pop, flip the pancakes over and cook for another 1-2 minutes. As each batch is done, transfer the pancakes to a plate and keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.

Finally, top with your favorite toppings and enjoy! Perfect pancakes are fluffy, light, and just slightly crisp on the outside. With a little practice and the right ingredients, you can make perfect pancakes every time.
