  • You can either use hand whisk or if you are using an electric whisk, keep the speed to medium and whisk till it blends.
  • Pour the wet ingredients mixture into the dry ingredient flour mixture and stir it for few times to get a lumpy medium thick consistency batter. Do not over stir otherwise the final pancake will be dense and hard. Don't worry about the lumps.

  • Heat the griddle, if you sprinkle few drops of water on the hot griddle and they disappear, then the griddle is ready.
  • Prepare the griddle by brushing the vegetable oil or butter and scoop the batter with 1/4 cup of measurement and pour it on the griddle. Once the edge becomes golden brown flip it to the other side.
