14. Fluff Up Pancakes
If your flapjacks tend to turn out flat or dense, try these tricks.
Bring the wet ingredients to room temperature before making the batter; cold liquids and eggs can lead to soggy results.
Ensure that your baking powder is still good (expired stuff won’t help the batter rise).
Leave a few lumps in the batter; they will cook out. If you whisk too much, you risk overworking it, developing the gluten and causing a gummy consistency.
For extra loft, fold a few whipped egg whites into the batter.
Make sure your griddle is properly heated before you begin. The heat helps puff up the pancakes.
