Making pancakes can be a tricky task, but with the right tips and tricks, you can make delicious pancakes every time. The key is to identify the problem and then provide a solution to fix it. If you find that your pancakes are too dense, it could be because you've used too many eggs in the recipe. To fix this, reduce the number of eggs and add a little more milk until you reach the desired consistency.
If the mixture is still too thick, add a tablespoon of flour at a time until it reaches the desired thickness. If the pancakes are still too dense, check if the baking powder is still active. To do this, sprinkle some warm water on a spoonful of baking powder. If it's bubbling or fizzing, it means that the baking powder is still fresh and can be used in your recipe.
If your pancakes are too flat, it could be because the dough is too wet. To fix this, add a little more flour until you reach the desired consistency. The dough should be thick enough for it to drip instead of popping out of the spoon and remember that it should still have some lumps.Using a cast-iron griddle or pan can also help you make perfect pancakes every time. Cast iron retains heat evenly, which means that the pan will heat up, stay warm, and give the pancakes a nice crispy crust (and reduce the chances of the pancakes being cooked unevenly).Finally, make sure not to overmix your pancake batter.
Overmixing causes gluten to build up, making the cooked results rubbery discs instead of soft, fluffy pancakes.With these tips in mind, you'll be able to make delicious pancakes every time! So go ahead and give it a try - I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised with your results.
