Adam and Joanne’s Ideas

  • Measuring flour: Fluff the flour in its container, then gently scoop it into your measuring cup till barely mounded. Stage off the highest with a knife for correct measuring. For much more accuracy, use a scale and measure the flour by weight (in grams).
  • Finest baking powder: Use aluminum-free baking powder (Rumford and Bob’s Purple Mill are examples), as they stop the tinny taste that may seem when baking powder is utilized in greater portions (like on this recipe).
  • Pancakes with out baking powder: For the fluffiest pancakes, use baking powder. Swap the milk for buttermilk and use 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda. If you happen to should not have buttermilk, you may make do-it-yourself buttermilk by stirring 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar into the 1 ¼ cups of milk referred to as for within the recipe and setting it apart for 10 minutes.
