Steps To Make Traditional Old-Fashioned Pancakes:

Step 1: Combine Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and a dash of cinnamon, setting the stage for that perfect pancake texture.

Step 2: Combine Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together milk, melted butter (or oil), vanilla, and eggs, until it’s a happy, homogenous mix.

Step 3: Make the Pancake Batter: Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry. Mix until just combined—remember, a few lumps are pancake promises of fluffiness to come. Let the batter sit and thicken for about 15 to 30 minutes; it’s worth the wait.

Step 4: Cook Pancakes: Heat your skillet and brush it with some butter. Pour in a scoop of batter and watch as the edges firm up and bubbles pop on the surface, a signal that it’s time to flip. Cook until golden, then serve warm with butter and a generous drizzle of maple syrup.

Don’t Overmix the Batter: To achieve the fluffiest pancakes. Mix the batter. Until the dry and wet ingredients. Are just combined. It’s okay. If there are a few lumps. Overmixing can make the pancakes tough. And chewy. Instead of light. And fluffy. Think of it this way. Treat your batter gently. And it will reward you with soft. Tender pancakes every time.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I add other ingredients to the batter?

Absolutely! Feel free to stir in fruits. Like blueberries. Or bananas. Or even chocolate chips. For a sweet twist.

What’s the secret to perfectly fluffy pancakes every time?

The key is not to overmix the batter. Mix just until the ingredients are combined. And let the batter rest as directed.

How can I keep my pancakes warm until ready to serve?

Keep them in a warm oven. At about 200°F. On a baking sheet. They’ll stay warm. And ready to be devoured!
