5 Amazing Healthy Pancake Recipes for the win

“There is Hardship in everything except eating Pancakes”

Pancakes make a healthy breakfast for all, from kids to elders.

How to make fluffy pancakes for the win?

1. It’s all about the batter

A perfect consistency is required not much thick neither too flowy.

  • If it’s too thick, you will have undercooked hard pancakes.
  • If it’s too flowy, you will end up spreading out and your pancakes won’t be fluffy.

Tip– let the batter rest for about 10-15 minutes for making much more fluffy pancakes.

2. Use medium heat

Don’t be in a hurry to cook on high flame. You may end up burning the whole thing.

Also don’t be in a hurry to flip your pancake otherwise you might end up spilling it all.

3. Perfection on the stove

Heat a pan. Once it’s heated, sprinkle some water and wipe it off with a clean wipe or cloth. Next add some oil or butter and spread it evenly with a brush or a clean cloth.

4. Master the flip

If you are doing it for the first time, this tip is for you.

When to flip?

When you start seeing bubbles on the batter that’s the right time to flip.

Use a “good quality” and “clean” spatula. Slide it gently underneath the pancake and flip it with your “wrist” not the entire hand.

All these make a huge difference.

Now that you have mastered the art of making fluffy pancakes , let’s get straight on to these best pancake recipes !
