Spoon, ladle or pour the batter from the tip of a spoon just a few inches above the preheated pan, being sure to space the batter well enough apart to allow some room for spreading. When bubbles have appeared on the surface and are beginning to break, lift the edges of the pancake with a spatula to see if the underside has browned. If it has, slide the spatula under the pancake and turn it. Turn the cakes only once, and cook only until the second side is done. The second side will take only half as long to cook and will not brown as evenly.
A real treat for the kids is "Branded" Pancakes. Drizzle their initial (backwards) on the hot griddle and allow it to cook a brief time. Then pour the remaining dough over the initial. When it's done they'll see their pancake is "Branded" with their initial.
