Insider Info

Serve with vanilla yogurt, pecan halves and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Always preheat skillet or griddle before cooking pancakes. Pan is hot when drops of water sizzle and dance on surface.

Cook pancakes in batches. Serve immediately or keep warm on a plate in a low (200°F) oven until all batter is used.

Batter will spread. Leave enough room between pancakes to allow for spreading.

For light pancakes, cook on first side until bubbles form on surface, then turn before bubbles break.
