Pancakes Done Right

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 mixer – minded the classic advice on the package: “Do not beat out the characteristic lumps in the batter; over mixing will toughen pancakes.”

Timing is everything; therefore, don’t start until the griddle is HOT. You can’t be changing the temperature while you’re working. Use a medium-low heat; it will be enough if you pre-heated properly.

Use Crisco® shortening instead of butter or oil on the griddle. Don’t flip them until you see steady bubbling.
