Do you like your fluffy pancakes light golden brown all over, or crispy around the edges like Grandma used to make in her old cast iron skillet? Personally, I can't decide. Thankfully, you can have them both from the same recipe.
All you have to do to get those crispy edges is to add a few tablespoons of oil to your pan (a cast iron skillet or non-stick surface work best) and let it get just a little hot before pouring the batter. Not too hot!
