When it comes to making pancakes, there is a debate about whether the batter should be left to rest in the fridge or at room temperature. While some say that there is no point in letting the dough rest, others believe that it can make a difference in the final product. So, what is the best option?As an expert in the field of baking, I recommend that if you have the time, it is best to let your pancake batter rest in the fridge for longer, even overnight. This will give the leavening agents, such as baking powder, baking soda, whipped egg whites, or beer, time to be distributed more evenly throughout the dough.
This will result in pancakes that rise more evenly and are fluffier. It is also important to store the pancake batter in an airtight container before placing it in the refrigerator.If you don't have time to weigh the ingredients and prepare the pancake mix in the morning, you can prepare the ingredients and store the dough for pancakes or waffles overnight. However, if your recipe calls for milk, you should not store pancake dough for more than one week at a time to make sure it doesn't sour. Additionally, if your recipe requires baking soda as the only way to make the dough rise, it's not an ideal recipe to prepare ahead of time.In conclusion, if you have time, it is best to let your pancake batter rest in the fridge overnight.
This will ensure that your pancakes are fluffy and rise evenly. However, if you are in a hurry, there is nothing wrong with using it right away.
