Have you noticed your butter burns before you can pour the batter onto the skillet? Me too. Butter's milk solids cause the burned color and flavor.
Clarified butter has a higher smoke point than milk solids, making it ideal for high-temperature cooking. Fry pancakes in clarified butter for a golden color and great flavor without burning. If you don't have clarified butter, you may create it in the microwave or stovetop.
Garten bakes pancakes separately in gratin pans for a unique way. This method produces a delightful pancake-Dutch baby hybrid.
She decorates the pancakes with fresh berries and maple syrup after baking, giving them a vibrant appearance and a fruity burst that each diner may enjoy from their own pan. Similar recipes include Apple Puffed Oven Pancakes and Sheet-Pan Pancakes.
A homemade fruit sauce can flavor pancakes instead of maple syrup. Garten advises a fresh-berry sauce, which balances the pancakes' sweetness with sharpness.
Even our Quick Mixed Berry Pancake Sauce is available. It's a less sweet maple syrup option that adds color and nutrition to your breakfast meal.
Garten adds lemon and ricotta to pancakes, which are usually sugary. She recommends adding creamy ricotta cheese and lemon juice and zest to her Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes.
We follow suit with healthful Lemon Ricotta and Blueberry-Ricotta Pancakes. The ricotta gives the pancake a light, airy texture, and this distinct taste combination makes it refreshing. You'll never use your old batter again after trying it.
Who says pancakes are only breakfast? With her delicious Fresh Corn Pancakes, Garten breaks this misconception by mixing cornmeal, corn flour, fresh corn, and chives into the batter.
The pancake is fluffy and buttery like cornbread and full of corn and chives. These savory pancakes with smoked salmon or crème fraîche prove that pancakes can make any meal gourmet.
