The batter should have volume, not fall flat or become doughy like chapatti dough. If the batter is too thick, add some tablespoons of milk.

With a spatula, empty the batter in the baking tin. Ensure it is even.

Put the baking tin in the preheated oven and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.

If top starts to brown, cover with foil or butter paper and continue to bake. You will know it is ready when the crust turns golden and a tooth pick or wooden skewer coming out clean.

KITCHEN TIP

Make pancakes using a squeeze bottle. Ladling pancake batter into a pan is most likely to make a mess. To avoid dripping batter all over the place, put it in an old condiment bottle and squeeze it out.
