    Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden.

Expert Tips

  • Cook these cakes on a true cast-iron griddle or in a large cast-iron skillet. Use a 1/4-cup measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the hot pan (it’s ready when a drop of water sizzles on the surface), then don’t turn them until they puff up and bubbles form on top. Flip them just once, cooking until just golden brown.
  • Rather than stirring ingredients into the batter, spoon a little batter onto the griddle then add sliced banana, raspberries, blueberries, or bits of a good chocolate bar, then top with another spoonful of batter. Then no one gets short-changed and every cake is filled with extras.
  • Mix pancake batter in a measuring cup or bowl with handle and spout. Then you can easily pour batter onto a griddle.
  • Don't flip 'em more than once! Repeated cooking on both sides toughens rather than browns the pancakes.
  • Keep pancakes warm until ready to serve by placing them uncovered in a single layer on a paper towel-lined cookie sheet in a 200°F oven.
  • Freeze leftover pancakes stacked between sheets of waxed paper, then wrapped in foil or a plastic freezer bag. Pop a couple unwrapped cakes into the toaster, spread with peanut butter mixed with some maple syrup, and send them out the door with the kids.
  • If you like thin pancakes, use 1 1/2 cups milk.
