(Video) How To Make Seriously Good Pancakes
The American pancake is famous. Restaurants take them for granted. People have warm feelings about pancakes, so if a restaurant puts pancakes on the menu, it's almost a guaranteed sale.
Anyone can make pancakes though, so what does it take to make seriously good pancakes?
Butter? Maybe, but if a pancake is made really well it doesn't need butter. Part of that reasoning is because it could be cooked with butter on the griddle, or at least a butter-oil combination. Though I'll admit that butter has the power to make nice pancakes truly memorable if it's properly softened or, even better, molten.
How about Sweetness?A pancake itself doesn't have to be very sweet. A truly great pancake deserves equally great maple syrup, so if a pancake isn't sweet on its own, the maple takes care of it.
Well, I have two great pancake recipes for you to try out!
