Top tips for how to make pancakes

- Eggs at room temperature disperse more evenly into the batter for a lighter texture

 - Don't over-mix the batter, or you'll develop the gluten, making your pancakes tough 

- To get consistent good sized pancakes, use a 1/4 or 1/3 cup measure for the batter

- Pre heat your pan 1 minute on a medium heat first before adding any oil or butter

- To avoid dry and tough pancakes, make sure the temperature is not too low

- Any leftover pancake mix may be stored up to a week in the fridge
