How To Flip Pancakes
Flipping pancakes can be challenging because oftentimes they lose their perfectly round shape in the process. It’s not uncommon for pancakes to end up misshapen because of a bad flip, but there are some things you can do to ensure you get the perfect pancakes every time.
Using a flat, nonstick griddle that’s been properly greased with butter over low-medium heat will provide a much better surface to flip your pancakes than a pan on the stovetop. Once you’ve added your pancake mix to the griddle, wait until you see bubbles rise to the surface throughout the whole pancake, not just around the edges, so you know that the bottom is fully cooked. Then use a spatula that is large enough to scoop under most of the pancake, so it doesn’t slip off and the batter doesn’t drip while it’s mid-flip. Most importantly, take your time; don’t try to rush through the flip. If you’re worried about getting it perfect, take the time to make sure you don’t drop it.
