  • Cook - Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, spoon the batter into the pan. Cook for roughly 2 minutes, or until you see bubbles in the middle of the pancakes and the edges are dry enough to get a spatula under the pancake. Flip and cook for another 1 minute on the other side, or until cooked through. Serve with berries and yogurt or pecans and maple syrup!
