What To Avoid While Making this Recipe?

  1. Avoid overmixing the batter, as this can result in tough pancakes.
  2. Make sure not to overcook the pancakes, as they can become dry and tough.
  3. Do not skip the resting time for the batter, as it allows the gluten to relax and creates fluffier pancakes.
  4. Avoid using old baking powder, as it may not give your pancakes the rise they need.
  5. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan, as this can make it difficult to flip the pancakes and cook them evenly.
