Happy National Pancake Day!

National Pancake Day, March 5th, is again upon us. Planning an elaborate breakfast to celebrate? Thankfully, publications by the University of Missouri Extension in MOspace are here to lend a hand with recipes and pointers. Here are some tips from “It’s Party Time.”

  • Bake until bubbles appear at the edges of the cake. Turn only once.
  • A slightly lumpy batter makes the lightest pancakes.
  • The cakes will have a better appearance if all the batter to be used in one cake is poured at once. “Spooning it out” in small portions is messy.

For more tips and for recipes, visit MOspace to check out “It’s Party Time,” and other publications related to pancakes and all types of foods for all diets and seasons.

Note: MOspace is an archive for University of Missouri Extension publications. Visit the MU Extension site for the most up-to-date information and publications.
