Flipping a pancake to perfection is harder than it may seem! From the team at Kulick’s Pancake Recipes comes this infographic which will teach you step-by-step on how to perfectly flip a pancake.
According to this visual guide, it all starts with using the right kind of pan. You’ll want to use a flat, nonstick griddle, because it will allow for you to get the spatula anywhere around the pancake, which will assist you with flipping the pancake. All in all, this infographic from Kulick’s Pancake Recipes takes you through a six-step process so that you become a master of flipping pancakes perfectly in no time. You’ll learn why it’s important to use the right spatula for perfect pancake flipping, along with why and how to look for bubbles throughout the pancake to know when to flip, as well as many other useful and helpful tips.
Aside from the step-by-step instructions on how to perfectly flip a pancake, this infographic also offers some rather helpful cooking tips for pancakes. For example, the guide explains how you should first practice with plain pancakes which are smaller, this way you’ll be able to better get the hang of it all. From there, it suggests that you then try smaller pancakes that contain the fun fillings. Another tip from this infographic is to not press the pancakes into the pan, because pressing the pancake in turn presses the air out of it, which then leads to the pancakes becoming both chewy and dense.
Other great tips from this infographic include resting the batter before cooking. The team at Kulick’s Pancake Recipes explains that by having a resting period of five to thirty minutes, a soft and tender texture can occur. This happens because the gluten now has time to relax, along with the starch now having time to absorb the liquid that’s within the batter.
