9 tips to make the Perfect Pancakes

Here are our 9 tips to make the perfect pancake.

  1. Leave the batter to rest at room temperature for at least an hour, whisk again before cooking.
  2. For a richer batter, add 2 tablespoons of melted butter to the mix.
  3. Using butter to fry will give you more colour and a deeper flavour. Be careful not to overheat the pan or the butter will burn.
  4. Use a silicon pastry brush to cover the pan with butter or oil more evenly.
  5. Use a good non-stick frying pan, with a flat base.
  6. Make the batter up a day ahead if you can. Chill if making more than 4 hours ahead of cooking.
  7. For dessert pancakes add 1 tsp of maple or ground cinnamon to the batter.
  8. Cooked pancakes keep well in the fridge for 2 days or in the freezer for a month. Place a sheet of making parchment between each pancake, then wrap in a double layer of clingfilm before freezing.
  9. Don’t worry if the first pancake isn’t perfect. It can take a minute until you figure out the correct temperature for your pan.
