What makes the perfect pancake? An incredibly fluffy pancake? Flavors so rich you'll feel like you're at a 5-star restaurant? Enough toppings to put a pizza to shame? All of these are the reason pancakes end up being less than perfect. We end up trying to do all of them together and end up with a subpar pancake. How do you make the best pancakes? One step at a time.

Start ahead of the curve

One of the biggest mistakes is by mixing everything together at once. Start with all ingredients at room temperature with two separate bowls; One for wet ingredients and one for dry. Mix both bowls separately. Once finished, create a well within the dry bowl to add in the wet ingredients. Gently mix the two bowls together until the mix is just moistened. Any further mixing will leave you with a tough mix which leads to less fluffy pancakes.

Cook better pancakes

Start with medium-low to medium heat. Any higher will burn the pancake. Cook until the edges are dry and the middle starts to bubble. Flip it over and cook the other side. A couple words of warning though. The other side will cook faster and DO NOT flatten pancake with the spatula. This will leave your pancake flat and hard, and you can say goodbye to the perfect pancake.


Toppings come last

Timing the toppings right makes a huge difference in the outcome of your pancakes. Instead of mixing in your fruit, nuts, etc., in your mix at the beginning, wait until the pancakes are cooking. Add them to the pancakes while they are still cooking the first side. This will heat them just enough to incorporate them into the pancakes without flattening them.
