Pancakes are a favorite dish. It can be eaten completely "naked," but it can also be topped with countless toppings to make the dish perfect.

The secret to making the perfect pancake lies in several important techniques and ingredients that, if you pay attention to them and act on them properly, your pancakes will become nothing short of excellent. Want to make your own? Here's how.

  • Use fresh leavenings: Substances like baking powder or soda are responsible for creating air pockets that give pancakes their airy texture. Over time, these ingredients lose their effectiveness, so pancakes may not rise properly if we use them when they are not fresh.
  • On the other hand, make sure to prepare the pancakes according to the recipe, as adding or subtracting ingredients such as leavening agents may damage the final result.

    2. Instead of using all-purpose flour, use cake flour: It's true that the first type of flour is used to make pancakes, but replacing it with cake flour can improve the texture and lightness of the dish. Cake flour has less protein, which makes the pancakes come out softer and more concentrated, with a delicate and airy texture.

    3. Sift the dry ingredients: The sifting procedure helps to ventilate and remove clumps from the flour, resulting in a smoother aerial pancake. Sifting traps air and also ensures a balanced distribution of the leavening agents.

    4. Incorporate mayonnaise into your ingredients: Yes, you read that right – mayonnaise. Add a little of this thick sauce to your wet ingredients, you'll create a pancake with a softer texture and even give it a certain richness, using its fat and emulsifiers, which provide pancakes with important moisture. Of course, it is worth taking into account that the supplement will not suit everyone's palate. For this reason we recommend that you first try the combination with a small amount of pancakes.

    5. Mix the batter with a balloon whisk: Using this whisk will put air into the batter, creating softer pancakes. Mix gently in one bowl containing the dry ingredients – without mixing it too much, as this can create stone-hard pancakes. Then, pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients, stirring again until no lumps remain in the resulting batter.

    6. Using baking powder? Add a little lemon juice:Adding lemon juice to the powder increases the effectiveness of its action, due to a chemical reaction created by contact between the juice and baking powder. Of course, in addition to all this, the lemon juice will add an interesting sourness to your pancakes.

    Admittedly, we've already gotten hungry (illustration),

    7. Allow the batter to rest: Let the batter sit for 15-10 minutes so that the leavening agents in it can do their best work. This rest helps pancakes bake in a balanced way and have a delicate texture. In this case, patience is a great virtue.

    8. Don't stress the pancakes: While it may be tempting to want to speed things up and flatten the pancakes in any way possible, it will only hurt the end result and the small, tasty pastries will be less tender. When you press the pancakes, you take out the air bubbles in them, which contribute to the softness and lightness of the dish. Let the heat take its course.

    Good luck!
