No waffling: These are the best pancake houses in New Jersey
You would think all pancake houses are alike but that's not the case in New Jersey. As we enter into the summer vacation season, you may find yourself searching for a great breakfast if you rent down the shore.
Look no further than these local pancake house; many have been there for generations serving up family recipes for years. So, what makes an excellent pancake?
According to uwyoextension.org:
Common pancake characteristics include a crisp exterior and soft, airy interior. They are made from thinner batter than actual cakes, and a little hot grease sets the outer surface quickly; this allows the inside to remain fluffy and light.
Why are restaurant pancakes so good? According to plattershare.com:
The reason pancakes taste so much better in restaurants than they do at home is that they are cooked on a professional griddle. This is how a restaurant can guarantee that the pancakes will cook evenly, which is important for keeping the flavor fresh.
