Here’s me working in the kitchen on Father’s Day. I just wanted to make pancakes.
I measured exactly and used the wire whisk on my KitchenAid Classic Series Mixer, remembering the classic advice on the package: “Do not beat out the characteristic lumps in the batter; over mixing will toughen pancakes.”
Timing is everything; don’t start until the griddle is HOT. You can’t change the temperature while you’re working. Use medium-low heat; it will be enough if you pre-heat properly.
Use Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening instead of butter or oil on the griddle. Don’t flip them until you see steady bubbling.
