It’s weird how making pancakes could be the easiest and the toughest thing you have to in a morning. You can whip the perfect batter, get that perfect smooth top, and utterly botch it up while flipping. Looks like we share something in common with international popstar Shakira here. The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer took to Instagram to post a reel about her latest ‘Pancake adventure’ with kids. The reel starts with Shakira announcing that they will be making pancakes for breakfast. She then proceeds to show us a rather limp pancake, “this is my best pancake”, she says and is quickly interjected by her elder son Milan who says “not pancakes, triangle cakes”. 

He does get more supportive with time, when Shakira finally starts making some more pancakes and asks her fans to wish her “luck”, he chimes in saying “Mommy is the best pancake maker in the whole wide world”. She proceeds to drop her batter on the greased pan, flips the pancake and it comes out slightly charred, this happens quite a few times. Eventually, she plates tow pancakes that are a little burnt on top. Guess making pancakes isn’t really a piece of cake for the Grammy award winning artist after all.  Watch the video.

Tips To Belt Out Perfect Pancakes  

When it comes to pancakes, there are a few tips and hacks that are actually considered very helpful universally. Like always heat the pan and then pour the batter, use generous amount of butter to the pan, let it start bubbling and then add your batter. Do not flip your pancakes more than once, the edges turn a little brown and then turn over your pancake. Another cardinal rule is to ensure there are no lumps in your batter, it is also a good idea to let your batter rest for some time before you start making the pancakes, this ensures all the elements are well-mixed.  

Here’s a delicious pancake recipe you can try at home. Serve with maple syrup or any topping of your choice.
