My pancakes were legendary when we lived in New Mexico. Thick, fluffy, buttermilk pancakes. We had a gas stove and I loved cooking on it.
Here in NoCO, I have a smooth-topped electric stove.
6 years later I've figured out how to cook most things on the electric stove, but not pancakes.
I've tried different skillets and fats but the pancakes are not legendary. Or perhaps they are just legendary at the other end of the spectrum.... burnt and raw at the same time or if I'm lucky, not raw but still burnt.
Clearly my temperature is too high but the electric stove takes so (sooo) long to change temperature. Ugh.
