Apply shortening to the grid. Butter isn’t a good choice since its high water content could cause sticking.

They should breathe. As you spoon the batter in, leave enough space between the pancakes to allow them to expand without crashing into one another. They’ll remain smooth and round.

Make a plan for the week. Make a second batch and refrigerate or store additional pancakes you make to reheat in the toaster during the week.
