Tips For Making the Best Dessert Pancakes

  1. Use a nice non-stick skillet for your pancakes
  2. Make sure your pan has been preheated for a few minutes before adding pancake batter. Will ensure you get golden cooking.
  3. For the very first pancake, add just a small amount of batter. I do this as the first pancake is usually the worst out of the batch.
  4. Top with a dollop of whipped cream if desired.
  5. Store any leftovers in an airtight container, warm to re-serve.
