How long should you wait before you flip a pancake?

Heat pan on medium for about 10 minutes. Pour batter to form pancakes of whatever size you like. Cook first side until bubbles form on top, about three minutes, then flip and cook other side until it, too, is brown, about two minutes.

How do you know when a pancake is done?

Let the pancakes cook until you see all little bubbles on the surface of the pancake. Using a spatula take a peek on the underside to see if they are ready to flip. They should be beautifully browned. Now cook the flip side until it is nice and brown.

Is it OK to eat doughy pancakes?

Can pancakes be a little undercooked?
