    Want to know the  Secret To Fluffy Pancakes?


    IT’S ALL ABOUT THAT YOLK! It causes trouble...If you want fluffier pancakes make sure to separate the egg yolk from the egg whites prior to adding them to the mixture. Add the egg YOLK to the mixture and in a separate bowl, beat the egg WHITES until you get a white frothy consistency. You must keep the egg yolk separate in order for the egg whites to froth properly. 

    The last step is to fold the egg WHITES into the batter. Do not over mix!
