  • Cook pancakes: Heat a large griddle over medium-low heat. Once the griddle has completely heated through, grease with a small amount of butter and place 1/4 cup portions of the batter on the hot griddle. Allow the pancakes to cook for 4-6 minutes per side, until golden brown. Flip the pancakes only once. Reapply a little butter before each pancake is poured.
