Tips For Making The Best Pancakes

  1. Mix lightly and give batter a rest!  Mix pancakes minimally to avoid forming toughening gluten. There are a few ways to ensure that you mix pancake batter well without overmixing it. Have all your ingredients at room temperature. Mix cold buttermilk and eggs with melted butter and you get clumps of butter—not the end of the world, but not optimal for even distribution.
  2. Mix the wet and the dry ingredients separately before combining.
  3. Give the batter a rest before cooking. A rest of at least five minutes allows for the even hydration of the batter and also allows the gluten you created—which will develop even with careful, minimal mixing—to relax. The lumps will smooth out somewhat during this rest.
  4. Test a small pancake in the hot skillet/griddle to make sure temperature is good.  No need to waste a full size pancake.
  5. Cook until bubbles cover the surface; flip before they all break.

    I don’t see a link to the caramel sauce. Do you have a recipe for it or do you just buy a hard from the store?

    1. Hi Courtney, I used the salted caramel from Trader Joe’s for this recipe. I warmed it up in a microwave safe bowl for 15-20 seconds before drizzling.

    Am I missing something, or is the oatmeal not listed in the ingredients in the recipe? These look yummy and hearty and I love walnuts!
