4) When cooking pancakes, you know to flip them when the edges are dry and you see a number of bubbles on top. After you flip them, the second side won't take as long to cook.
5) It takes cooking a few pancakes to get the heat right to the perfect temperature. Don't worry if your first pancake comes out a little dark or light. Adjust the heat accordingly.
½ tsp. salt
3 tbs. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs or egg substitute
1 8 oz. container cup low-fat yogurt
1 cup low-fat milk
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tbs. butter or Olivio Butter Spread, melted and cooled
Butter, Olivio Butter Spread, or Olivio Spray
Mix the dry ingredients together until well incorporated in one bowl. Mix the wet ingredients together until well incorporated in another bowl. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients. Mix together until just incorporated. The mixture should have some lumps in it.
Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a little butter spread or spray. Using a 1/4 cup measure, add batter to the hot surface. Add as many pancakes as will fit without touching; 2-3 pancakes is the norm.
Cook 2-3 minutes on one side until edges are dry and large bubbles appear. Flip and cook 1-2 minutes on the other side. Place on a rack or plate. You can put them in a 200 degree oven to keep warm or tent them with foil.
Serve with syrup, jam, fruit, confectioner's sugar or your favorite toppings.
