No matter how much I enjoy cooking a creative meal for my family, there are a few things I continuously have a hard time perfecting. Rice, I make Uncle Ben look like Uncle Sam, potato salad & pancakes.
Every time I make pancakes it would always end in tragedy! I know. Wait until they’re filled with holes on top & flip them over. Been there done that & it never turns out the same way twice.
So, a couple weeks ago I was cooking pancakes & was thinking that I needed to buy a pancake griddle. Then I thought about the way I’ve been frying my fish lately.(That’s another post) the light bulb came on! That’s it! I’ll put them in the oven!
Step 1 preheat oven 450 (yep 450)
Step 2 mix up batter (in this batch I added frozen blueberries)
Step 3 take a cookie sheet or any other oven pan you may have. I use the pan that came with my stove. I think it’s intended for broiling.
Step 4 lightly coat your cooking surface with vegetable oil.
Step 5 place cookie sheet in oven without pouring pancake mix on it. This is to get it nice and hot.
Step 6 take cookie sheet out of oven.
Step 7 pour pancake mix on sheet. (Large or small it’s up to you)
Step 8 place in oven.
Step 9 after 2minutes check on them. What your looking for is for the top of the pancake to look smooth & done. They’re not going to be done but this will let you know to flip them over. Flip them over & allow to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on the opposite side.
There you have it! Some beautiful pancakes. I’ll NEVER EVER! Cook pancakes the traditional way again.
