Maybe y’all did, as the consensus from friends suggest, but here is the secret to perfectly golden brown pancakes: low heat! For a while now, preparing gluten-free pancakes was always bittersweet: they were indeed pancakes but did not have that luscious golden brown diner-pancake glow.
At first, Pump Mama thought the problem was a lack of sugar in the batter to melt on the surface of the pan. Even pancakes with sugar produced the same shoddy results. Frustrated, she went straight to online research. The same tip kept popping up: “Wait for a drop of water to dance in the pan” and that will be the right heat setting for the pan. What does that mean? After some experimenting, Pump Mama learned that it means “low heat.”
She is happy to report that her gluten-free, dairy-free, and mostly sugar-free pancakes are now golden brown — always!
