As they come off the grill, slip the hot pancakes between the folds of a clean kitchen towel on a baking sheet, then keep warm in a very low (200°F) oven.

Baking Soda and Baking Powder These two leavenings are not interchangeable, even if they both have the word baking in their names. When a batter is mixed and heated, many chemical reactions take place, but how one or the other of these two leavening agents react with other ingredients is crucial to the success of a baked good.

Cake flour is famous for its ability to absorb liquids and for this reason is used in commercial baking, as you can use less flour in proportion to the liquid ingredients, and often save money that way.

When I made it again with my “homemade” cake flour, things went better.
