Step By Step Instructions
- Tip #1: The best way to know that the pancakes are ready to be flipped other than a 2 minute timer is to look for the bubbles in the batter.
- Tip #2: Make sure that the batter mixes thoroughly by scrapping down the sides of the food processor.
- Tip #3: Re-spray the non-stick pan with cooking oil each time you put new batter into the pan to prevent sticking.
