Nothing says breakfast like a stack of pancakes. Pancakes are one of the oldest and most popular breakfast foods around and for good reason. They’re easy to make, they can be customized to suit any taste, and they’re just plain delicious.

There are all sorts of ways to make pancakes, but this recipe is for the classic version.

Classic Vs. Customized Pancakes

There are two main types of pancakes: classic and customized. Classic pancakes are the kind that most people think of when they hear the word “pancake.” They’re made with a simple batter of flour, milk, eggs, and baking powder, and they’re usually served with butter and syrup. Customized pancakes are those that have additional ingredients added to the batter, such as fruit, chocolate chips, or nuts.

Which Type Of Pancake Is Better?

That’s up to you! If you’re in the mood for something classic and simple, go for the classic pancakes. But if you’re feeling adventurous, give the customized pancakes a try.

Tips For a Fluffier Pancake

There are a few things you can do to ensure that your pancakes are nice and fluffy.

  • First, be careful not to overmix the batter.
  • Second, let the batter rest for a few minutes before cooking the pancakes. This will allow the baking powder to work its magic and make the pancakes extra fluffy.
  • Finally, make sure to cook the pancakes on medium-high heat. If the heat is too low, the pancakes will be dense and doughy. If the heat is too high, the pancakes will be dry and tough.

All-Purpose Flour Vs. Bread Flour

Pancakes can be made with either all-purpose flour or bread flour. All-purpose flour is the most common type of flour used for pancakes, and it will work just fine. However, if you want your pancakes to be extra fluffy, use bread flour.

Moreover, if you want a gluten-free option, you can use a gluten-free flour blend. Just be sure to add an extra teaspoon or two of baking powder to the batter.

Milk Options

You can use any type of milk you like in pancakes, including cow’s milk, almond milk, and soy milk. If you want your pancakes to be extra rich and decadent, use whole milk.

Buttermilk is another option, and it will give the pancakes a slightly tangy flavor. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can make your own by adding a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to regular milk.

Pancake Batter Ratio

The ratio of ingredients in pancake batter is important. If you add too much flour, the pancakes will be dry and dense. If you add too much milk, the pancakes will be thin and runny. The perfect pancake batter should be thick but pourable. This recipe will never fail you.
