Frequently Asked Questions

What makes pancakes fluffy?

A leavening agent in the batter (usually baking powder) creates air bubbles that puff up the pancake. The gluten from the flour in the pancake is what helps those air bubbles hold shape and keep the pancakes fluffy even after they are no longer cooking.

Why aren't my pancakes fluffy?

There are a few reasons your pancakes may not be fluffy. The most likely cause is is over-mixing. This is a common mistake and often occurs because you are looking for a smooth batter. In reality, pancake batter should be a little bit lumpy (but without any large streaks of flour).

Another possibility is that you didn't use enough flour or enough liquid in your batter. If you didn't use enough flour (ie, too much liquid), the pancakes won't have the amount of gluten needed to hold their fluffy shape. If you didn't use enough liquid (too much flour), the leavening agent won't have the room it needs to create those soft pockets of air and will result in dense, rubbery pancakes.

How should I store leftover pancakes?

Wrap the pancakes in plastic or foil (I oftentimes use a zip top bag) to keep them from drying out, and then store them in the refrigerator. Refrigerated pancakes should be eaten within  a day or two. Frozen pancakes should be eaten within a month.
