Pancake Making Tips – Electric Griddles

Electric griddles are a great choice when making pancakes. While stovetop griddles generally straddle two burners, the heating elements on an electric griddle are distributed evenly, which produces more uniformly golden pancakes. Electric griddles come either with a high, medium and low setting or an exact temperature setting. Some electric griddles form a smiley face design on the pancakes to add fun to breakfast time.
