Banana Chip Pancakes Tips

How do you keep chocolate chips from melting in pancakes?

Quick cook times usually keep chocolate chips intact while cooking. In addition, milk chocolate chips like the ones used here take more time and higher temperatures to melt than dark or semisweet chips. Read about our Test Kitchen's favorite chocolate chips.

Why are my banana pancakes mushy?

If your heat is too high, you may be browning the outsides of your pancakes before the insides get a chance to cook through. Try turning your heat a little lower to fully cook the pancakes before the edges brown. Find more tips for perfect pancakes.

What's the trick to fluffy pancakes?

Make sure your baking mix is fresh (rising agents such as baking soda or baking powder don't last forever) and whatever you do, don't overmix the batter. Stir just until combined and large lumps are dissolved. Find more tasty pancake recipes.
