You should cook pancakes at this heat level

The perfect crepe is light brown on the outside but fluffy on the inside. However, achieving this can be tricky if your heat isn’t consistent. If the heat is too high, the outside of the pancake may brown too much or burn while the inside cooks. If the heat is too low, the pancakes will overcook the inside before the outside has a chance to brown, resulting in a gummy texture, for (Gas Walton.)

If you are using a griddle with temperature control, spruce eats recommends preheating the griddle to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, then reducing it to between 360 and 370 degrees when you start cooking. If you don’t have a griddle with temperature control, they recommend using a heavy-duty cast iron skillet over medium heat.

Bonus tip: If you’re looking for more fluffiness with your pancakes, separate the egg yolks and egg whites when making your batter. Add the yolks to the wet ingredients, then beat your whites separately, then fold them into the batter just before cooking. (by The Spruce Eats).

Whether you enjoy your pancakes topped with traditional maple syrup or honey like the ancient Greeks, use the right temperature and you’ll get that perfect pancake every time.
