  • The trick to making fluffy pancakes is not to overwork the batter. Make sure that your flour measurements are accurate if not the yolks mixture gets too thick making your egg whites folding, breaking up the air bubbles and you end up not having this incredibly light and fluffy pancake.
  • If you find out that your yolks mixtures are too thick just add 1tbsp of milk to the mixture before folding in the egg whites.
  • In this recipe, I doubled the portion. Make sure your heat is on the medium if not your pancake gets burned out before flipping out nobody wants to serve a burnt pancake. As I always say practice makes perfect.
