  3. Preheat a frying pan with oil, until hot. Spoon dollops of batter into the pan and let them cook until bubbles appear and start to pop. Flip the pancakes and cook until done. Remember that flour may not hold together as well as traditional flour, so just be a little careful when turning.

  4. Repeat this process until the batter is used up or make some easy crepes since the batter is interchangeable.

Common Questions About How to Make Classic Pancakes

What flour do I use? All purpose flour is best. However if you would like to make a gluten free pancake you can use rice flour, or almond flour for preparing a keto pancake recipe.

How do I store my Classic pancakes? Store your pancakes in a refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to a few days.
