EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

Pancakes

A warm stack of homemade pancakes is the ultimate weekend indulgence, and they are surprisingly easy to make from scratch. Set aside boxed mixes and their mystery ingredients and take just a few extra minutes for a big payoff in flavor and quality. Four basic ingredients create the base for pancake batter: flour, dairy, egg, and leavening (baking powder or soda). Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet and start flipping.

 

Traditionally, pancakes are made with milk or buttermilk and are served with melting butter and warm maple syrup. Endless variations on this exist, so whether you're swapping or mixing in different ingredients or trying new toppings, there is a version to please everyone. Try our test-kitchen-approved recipes and use our tips for the perfect pancake.

All About Pancakes

recipe

Sausages and pancakes just seem to go together, and, in fact, they've been a popular pairing since at least 1787, when the first reference to toad-in-the-hole appeared in an English provincial glossary, for "meat boiled in a crust." Ours is flavored with fresh rosemary and a touch of mustard, and served with an onion gravy intensified by Madeira.

recipe

Unlike most pancakes, this cardamom-scented version hailing from Finland is baked rather than fried or grilled, giving it a soft, puffed-up interior and a delicately crisp crust.

recipe

These crisp chickpea and olive oil pancakes are local to Nice, on the Mediterranean coast. Also known as farinata in Italy's Liguria, where chickpeas are a staple, these are savory pancakes. Serve them with a green salad as a light lunch or with an aperitif as a late-afternoon snack.
