Can I Mix The Batter Ahead Of Time?

It is not recommended. When buttermilk and baking soda combine, bubbles are formed. If you let the batter stand for too long, these bubbles will form and burst and the pancakes will turn out flat.

How Do I Store Leftover Pancakes?

Let them cool down completely before placing them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Know When To Flip The Pancakes?

When bubbles appear on the surface and the edges become slightly golden and dry, it’s time to flip the pancakes.

Can I Use A Different Type Of Flour?

You can use whole wheat flour, but the texture will make a more dense pancake.

How Can I Make The Pancakes Fluffier?

The best way to keep pancakes light and fluffy is by not overmixing the batter so as not to deflate the bubbles produced by combining buttermilk and baking soda.

What If I Don’t Have A Griddle?

You can use a non-stick skillet. Make sure it is hot and greased before pouring in the batter.

How Can I Keep Pancakes Warm After Cooking?

Preheat the oven to 200 F and place the pancakes on a baking sheet in the oven.

What Can I Use If I Don’t Have Buttermilk?

You can make your own buttermilk by mixing one cup of milk with one tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar. Let it stand for 5 minutes before using.

What’s The Best Temperature To Cook Pancakes?

Medium-low heat is the best. Make sure the skillet or griddle is hot before pouring in the batter. Also, the skillet will continue to get hotter as time goes on, so you may need to lower the temperature a little to prevent the last pancakes from turning out too dark.
