How To Make Pancakes

For all those who hate breakfast, pancakes are a Godsend. For all those who are passionate about breakfast, pancakes are just another incredible present to an already wonderful list of delicious breakfast foods. No matter what your preferences are, almost everyone loves pancakes, and you must learn to master the making of such a delicious Treat!

First, you will need to look for a recipe. Look in your favorite cookbook or search the net and find the one that is perfect for you. It can be a plain recipe or you can make chocolate chip pancakes, sour cream pancakes, or sand dollar pancakes. Whatever you choose, the same basic instructions go for most types.

Now it’s time to start your pancakes. Initially, measure out the dry ingredients. Use the correct measuring cups and spoons, and be as accurate as possible. If you have too much of an ingredient or too little, especially with baking powder, it might mess it up. If the flour needs to be sifted, make sure you do to avoid lumps. Mix all the ingredients together well with a spoon.

Next, stir all the wet ingredients in a bowl. If the recipe calls for melted butter, mix the eggs, milk, and other ingredients first, then add the butter and mix it fast so that it’s combined thoroughly. Combine the ingredients thoroughly enough to combine, but don’t over beat and add too much air.

When both the wet and dry ingredients are mixed, pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients. Stir gently and minimally. It’s important with pancakes not to over beat because it will make the pancakes tough. Make sure you stir it well enough, but if there are a few lumps, that's okay. Lumps are okay as long as there aren’t too many.

Heat a griddle or pan to medium high heat and lightly grease with butter, vegetable oil, or nonstick spray. With a ladle or measuring cup, pour about ¼ cups of batter onto the pan to form pancakes (that are/spaced) about 2 inches apart. Let them cook for about one minute. Little bubbles should start to pop up across the pancakes. This will tell you it’s time to flip. Cook for another minute on the other side.

When the pancakes are finished, they should have a golden brown color on each side. Serve them warm with butter and syrup. If you want, you could top with strawberries and whipped cream or your other favorite topping. Don't wait until the next sunrise, start your pancakes now!
