Most often, cooks make dough for pancakes on milk, but even this variant of it is represented by many recipes: with or without yeast, with eggs or without eggs, with added dairy products, starch, and other ingredients.

Cooking Features

The technology of dough preparation for pancakes in milk may have slight differences, much depends on the specific recipe, but the general principles still remain the same.

  • Pancakes can be baked not only from wheat flour, but also from oatmeal, buckwheat, and corn flour. Buckwheat and oat pancakes are healthier than wheat, but they are never thin and elastic. If you want to make such pancakes less friable, buckwheat and oatmeal flour should be mixed with wheat flour in a 1: 1 ratio, add a little more eggs to the dough itself.
  • Eggs give dough elasticity; without them, pancakes can break, but if necessary, they can still be replaced with starch. Putting many eggs in the dough is also not worth it, otherwise the products will resemble scrambled eggs.
  • Flour of any kind must be sieved before combining with other ingredients. This is done not only in order to rid the product of small litter and insect larvae. The main purpose of this manipulation is to saturate the flour with oxygen. After sifting, it becomes easy, it can be easily combined with other components, preventing the formation of lumps. Products made from such flour are more tender and airy.
  • The thickness of the pancakes depends on the consistency of the dough and on which layer it is poured onto the pan. Especially lush pancakes are obtained from yeast dough, but fresh is cooked much easier and faster. If the pancake dough is kneaded without yeast, baking powder or vinegar-blasted soda must be added to it.

For cooking delicious and beautiful pancakes, it is not enough to knead a good dough - you still need to bake the products correctly from it. To do this, choose a thick-bottomed pan with a smooth surface, cast iron or high-quality non-stick coating. Frying pan with a cooking brush covered with oil. Pour dough into the center of the pan and, rotating and slightly tilting the pan, distribute it over it. As soon as the pancake is browned from the edges, it is turned over and fried on the other side. If you fry thin pancakes, planning to serve them with a filling, you can fry them on one side.
