Step 3: The pancakes - method 1
This is where you get to be creative! Try just about anything or let the gang make requests. If you are suffering from "special pancake" block, just try different geometric shapes. Kids will be thrilled about triangle shaped pancakes.
One trick I have learned is to outline your shape and then fill in the inside after. If you don't go quick, you will have weird lines on one side of the pancake (not a big problem, just serve it good side up)
Flipping can be tricky, i use lots of butter so it doesn't stick and a big spatula. Let it get good and cooked on the one side before attempting to flip.
