Why are diner pancakes so good?

Restaurant pancakes taste better because they use a professional griddle and the even heat cooks them better (crisper and more evenly) than you can at home.

What makes pancakes chewy?

Flour contains a protein called glutenin (or gluten), which is crucial for the formation and structure of pancakes and baked goods. Gluten also provides the “chewy” texture in pancakes and breads. When the flour is dry, the gluten molecules are nearly immobile, which means that they do not move much.

What happens if you add an extra egg to pancakes?

Too much egg, however, will make the pancake dense and custard-like; not enough will make it drier and more biscuit-like. Baking powder and baking soda are the chemical leaveners typically used in pancakes. They are responsible for the bubbles in the batter, and for making the cakes light and fluffy.

Should I add egg to pancake mix?

Some boxed pancake mixes already require you to add in a couple eggs, but if your pancake mix doesn’t you absolutely should! Adding eggs to your pancake mix will give the batter a better texture and flavor, more resemblant of homemade pancakes.

What happens if you don’t add egg to pancake mix?

Without eggs, your pancake won’t be as fluffy as it could be. If you combine it with baking powder and/or soda with some warm water, and you‘ll have a batter that will make more of it’s own CO2 that will fluff up those morning pancakes. Now if you DON’T put in an egg, it’s not the end of the world.

How many eggs for 2 cups pancake mix?

Larger Pancake Servings: 20-24 Pancakes = 2 cups Mix; 1 1/2 cups Milk; 2 Eggs; 2 tbsp Oil.

What to add to pancake mix to make it better?

Perk up boxed pancake mix by adding a dash of baking soda, lemon juice, vanilla and sugar. For maple flavor, add a small splash of maple syrup to the pancake batter. For a sweet-and-spicy touch, sprinkle some vanilla and cinnamon into the batter.

Can I add milk instead of water to pancake mix?

Use milk/ alternative milk instead of water

Even though the mix may call for water, you can easily substitute that for an alternative milk (I like oat milk). You may have to add a dash more due to the difference in consistency, but it’ll taste so much better!
