[CnD] Question: how do you cook and flip pancakes?

A sense of where it is helps. Make sure your spatula has a good edge to it, and slip it under the pancake and do a quick flip over. To practice this use a pot holder or one of those flat sink stoppers on a cool griddle and practice flipping it over by sliding the spatula under it and using a twist of the wrist to overturn it. Always practice this on the stove with it turned off, so you get used to the angle and where things are.

Hi,

Ah, makes sense.

My problem with flipping pancakes (if I don't go with the clamshell recommendation which you smartly pointed out) is that they keep sliding off my spatula -- I'm not sure if that's the right word. I'm talking about the wide, thin, and usually metal thing you use for flipping stuff. I would think using something like a fork to keep the pancake in place would help, but I'm not sure if the pancake would break since one side is still very soft.

How do you manage to do this? Am I getting it wrong or using the wrong equipment?

Thanks!

When making pancakes I go for "hot cake" sized, around 2.5-3 inches in diameter, and I don't overfill the griddle so I have room to turn them over without landing on another one of them. This depends on your griddle -- if you have a larger one, like my two burner Circulon model, you can do this with the six inch "pancake" size too. Anything bigger than that, which are sometimes called "flapjacks" or griddle cakes, will probably require pan flipping, and I don't know many blind folks who want to try to flip pancakes by launching them into the air. Note that these are much easier for us to do with a clamshell grill that has removable plates and one of them is a set of flat plates -- in that case it's pretty much like cooking a waffle -- pour the batter on the surface, close it, and time it .
