How to Make Thin Pancakes:
Our chef Victoria will teach you how to make pancakes in her video (above) more specifically she’ll be teaching you all about making the thinner pancake such as crepes, dosas or socca pancakes. Crepes are the French version, Socca the Italian and dosas are the Indian version.
How to Make Fluffy, Thick American Pancakes:
- Do Add Butter
The butter will add a rich flavour, but if you’re trying to cut down and be a bit healthier, it’s not necessary. But… it does taste better.
- Do Use Raising Agents
Either baking powder or bicarbonate of soda for a nice fluffy pancake, perfect for stacking.
- Do Replace Milk with Buttermilk
Buttermilk reacts with your raising agents in a way that leads to a fluffier pancake.
- Do Try Our Delicious Pancake Recipes
We’ve got some great ways to add a bit of flavour to your pancakes listed below.
- Don’t Flip When Bubbles Erupt
Unlike with their thinner counterparts, it’s best to wait until your American pancakes start looking a little bit cooked on the top side, which is a tiny bit after bubbles start erupting. Otherwise when you flip, you’ll have a lot of wet dough and it will be messy.
- Don’t Overmix the Batter
Just fold the ingredients together gently until they’re mixed. Avoid using food processors – this will lead to overworked, tougher pancakes.
- Don’t Add Your Batter to a Cold Pan
Get your pan to a medium heat before adding butter and batter, otherwise it will be soggy.
