How to not burn pancakes, from Mom:

use a teflon pan. heat pan. put very very little oil on the pan. pour batter. turn down heat so pancake (first bottomside) will brown evenly. When pancake (topside) starts to bubble, watch and flip pancake as soon as bubbles have burst and batter looks dry. pancake is cooked when it rises (thickens) You can check if the second face is done. If not, you may turn the heat up just a little bit. Remove pancake from pan. Turn up heat again for the next pancake. Use the thickest, flattest pan that you have so your pancakes will brown evenly. Hope this helps. =)

Egg-free pancakes, from Paul Lussier:

Pancakes don't require any egg at all:

  • 1 cup flour (I prefer whole wheat flour, better flavor, heathier)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • Cinnamon/Nutmeg season to taste
  • 1.5-2 cups soy milk
  • Add any variety of fruit: blueberries, strawberries, apples, bananas, etc.

I love writing about my cooking misadventures because they make my friends laugh and I get plenty of tips, too. =)
