How to make fluffy Oatmeal Pancakes?
- Prepare the batter: In one bowl, combine all the wet ingredients and the lemon zest. In another, combine all the dry ingredients. Then, add in the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Mix until smooth.
- Adjust the consistency: If the batter is too thick, add a tablespoon of milk at a time.
- Cook in the griddle: Preheat the griddle to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or heat a non-stick skillet on the stove. Put the butter to melt. Add portions of the batter and add fruits to each one. When bubbling starts, flip and cook the other side.
- Serve: Serve warm with your desired sauce and toppings.
The key to making them fluffy is keeping them thick as you cook them in the pan and not leaving out the baking powder and baking soda.
The baking soda produces carbon dioxide bubbles quickly upon contact with acid. In addition, the baking powder itself performs the same when it interacts with moisture and during cooking.
These ingredients add volume to the batter without using any yeast.
