What is a 1/4 tsp equal to?
How long should pancakes be cooked?
Using a lightly oiled pan or griddle over medium-high heat, the average pancake takes between two and three minutes per side to cook.
How long do pancakes cook each side?
Heat pan on medium for about 10 minutes. Pour batter to form pancakes of whatever size you like. Cook first side until bubbles form on top, about three minutes; then flip and cook other side until it, too, is brown, about two minutes.
Should you let pancake batter rest?
Give the batter a rest before cooking.
A rest of at least five minutes allows for the even hydration of the batter and also allows the gluten you created—which will develop even with careful, minimal mixing—to relax. The lumps will smooth out somewhat during this rest.
Why is the second batch of pancakes always better?
While that first pancake cooks the pan comes to temperature, and it absorbs just enough of the fat on the cooking surface so that second one will cook more evenly.
