Recommendations for Making the Best Pancake Recipe

Everyone loves a golden pancake with crispy edges. Best Pancakes can be achieved by using a few of these tips:

  • Sift the flour for extra light pancakes. Chiefly to reduce clumps and create air.
  • Separately, whisk the wet ingredients together.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients.
  • Importantly, whisk just until moistened—DON’T OVERMIX! A few lumps are fine.
  • Lastly, pour the batter into a squeeze bottle. Simply squeeze the batter onto a griddle and avoid the drippy mess that comes with ladling it out of a bowl.
