The Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.

  5. Carefully flip each pancake with a spatula, revealing their perfectly golden underside.
  6. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate, stacking them high and proud. Ah, the sight of that beautiful pancake tower! Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter until you’ve transformed it all into stacks of fluffy goodness.
