What is the best pancake recipe?
A griddle with temperature control is the best tool for cooking pancakes. We like to use an electric skillet. Set the temperature to 375 F when preheating, then turn it down to 370 or 360 F once you start to cook the pancakes.
Should I cook pancakes in butter or oil?
Butter tastes great, but it browns too quickly on the high heat of your skillet to be useful for making pancakes. A good pancake requires a fat with a higher smoke point—such as canola oil, shortening, coconut oil or even ghee or clarified butter.
Should you rest pancake batter?
A – Ideally make your batter and let it rest for about 30 minutes before cooking. This allows the flour to absorb the liquid, making the pancakes lighter and fluffier.
Why are my pancakes not fluffy?
Stir your batter until the dry and wet ingredients are just incorporated. That means mixing until the flour streaks have disappeared, but leaving the pesky lumps. If you over-mix, the gluten will develop from the flour in your batter, making your pancakes chewy instead of fluffy.
Can I replace plain flour with self-raising flour?
Can self-raising flour replace plain flour? Yes and no. If the recipe calls for plain flour with the addition of baking powder (or another leavening agent), self-raising flour can be used instead, simply omit the leavening agent.

I find 1¾ tablespoons (35mls) about right for the Delia Online Frying Pan. It’s also helpful if you spoon the batter into a ladle or a small coffee cup so it can be poured into the hot pan in one go. Hold the ladle so that the base is very close to the bottom of the pan then pour in.
How to cook pancakes in a deep fryer?
Brush the fry pan with a bit of oil, then gradually place spoonful’s of batter in. Cook each side of the pancake for about 1 to 2 minutes or until it has turned golden brown.
