Tips & Techniques Cooking Making Filled Pancakes

With a sweet or savory filling tucked inside, filled pancakes are a special treat for a weekend brunch. Keep these tips in mind when preparing filled pancakes at home.

Following the recipe directions, add only a small amount of filling to the center of each pancake before topping with more batter; this will ensure that the filling remains contained inside.

Because the pancakes puff up considerably when cooking, do not overfill the wells with batter.

To flip the pancakes over, use two wooden skewers or toothpicks.
