Are pancakes fattening?
They can be. It all depends on if you use fat such as butter or oil in the batter, and also if you add any toppings.
Is it better to add milk or water to pancake mix?
Adding milk makes the pancakes tender and adds more flavor. For this recipe, we used skimmed milk (very low fat milk)
Why aren’t my pancakes fluffy?
