Perfect pancakes, every time. Except when you’re hungover.

15 Dec

Are your pancakes always….well, weird? Are you desperately wanting to flip up perfectly golden, fluffy pancakes but always end up with fritters that your pooch would even turn their nose up at? Here are some tips for getting perfect pancakes every time, courtesy of this wonderful website.

1. Before you ladle on the batter, wipe the excess butter from the pan with some paper towel. This will ensure perfect golden pancakes rather than the blotchy mess you usually whip up.

2. Despite what you’ve been taught, it is actually better NOT to get into a whipping frenzy when beating your pancake mixture. Leaving a few lumps in the batter will actually lead to fluffier pancakes, or so Martha Stewart says. Hey, I’m all for less work!

3. If you’re adding filling to your pancakes, like blueberries or other fruit, don’t add these to the mixture and mix in. When you pour the batter into the pan, then sprinkle your fruit on top to ensure even distribution.

  • Filling Ideas
  • Sliced bananas and honey
  • Sliced peaches or pears
  • Apple slices with cinammon
  • Fresh berries
  • Poppy seeds and lemon zest
  • Shredded coconut
  • Chocolate chunks
  • Chopped, toasted nuts
  • Glace fruit or dried fruit
