  • Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium; add a drizzle of oil, then wipe with a paper towel, leaving behind a thin film. Working in batches, add heaping 1/4 cups of batter to skillet and cook until bubbles form on surface, edges set, and undersides are golden, 3 to 4 minutes per batch. Arrange pansies over tops of pancakes, then flip and cook 1 minute more. Serve with butter and syrup.
