Pancakes are known as American fluffy pancakes, and they are comparable to pancakes in many aspects. The meal is heavy in calories in the traditional version, however this is "dressed" by making modest changes to the recipe, such as adding banana to pancakes. How do you make a lighter version of a traditional American dessert?
Pancakes are traditionally made using wheat flour, eggs, and sugar. They can be topped with fruit if desired. In lightened-up recipes, flour is substituted with whole grain or rice flour, and the sub-formulas are omitted. Cook all of the selections and then pick the one you like most.
