How do you make pancakes so that they turn out to be appetizing and fluffy instead of thin mini-pancakes? The FoodOboz editorial team knows the answer to this question.

There is nothing complicated in making fluffy pancakes, the main thing is to follow a few rules.

  • Flour. To make fluffy pancakes, be sure to sift the flour. This simple manipulation saturates the flour with oxygen, which in turn makes the dough more airy and fluffy.
  • The dough. The dough for pancakes should be thick enough, but at the same time viscous, with a consistency similar to sour cream. The main thing here is to find a happy medium with flour: if you add too little, the dough will spread in the pan, if you overdo it, it will be stiff and sticky.
  • Sugar. A large amount of sugar invariably leads to the fact that the dough falls and the pancakes spread on the pan. If you want fluffy pancakes, make the dough bland, and add sweetness after cooking by pouring honey, syrup, or jam over the dish.
  • Temperature. All products used in the recipe should be at room temperature. Just take them out about 40 minutes before cooking.
  • Time. After making the dough, let it rest: leave it for 15-20 minutes at room temperature.
  • The frying pan. To make pancakes, the frying pan needs to be very hot. Then you need to grease the hot surface with oil and immediately start spooning the batter.
