For some reason, my pancakes always end up hard and stiff on the outside and doughy in the middle.
I've tried the heat super low, medium, but I always have the same problem, and with different batter recipes too.
Anyone have any tips?

What are you frying them in? I always use butter or coconut oil and it works well. Does everything else cook normally on your stovetop/with that frypan?

Separate your eggs before you add them to batter, beat the whites first then add them to the rest of the batter, this makes them light and fluffy

I always leave my batter for 10 minutes before cooking. I think that helps. Always sift my flour too. Tried a couple of times to skip it and they weren't as good.

I found a great pancake recipe a little while ago. They always turn out great. Google Pete's pancake recipe.

what type of frypan are you using? we have a good pancake pan, and a dodgy pancake pan.

I have no tips - DF is a pancake wizard but he's at work right now - but I really want pancakes.

I've tried cooking them in butter, cooking spray, they always turn out the same!
Maybe there's something wrong with the way I mix the batter.

What's your recipe?
I find recipes with sugar go like what you describe.

I've never had to fuss about with separating eggs and whatnot. I generally just do:
1 cup milk
1cup flour (self raising if you want fluffy, plain if you want crepe-style)
Pinch of salt
Pinch of sugar
I let the batter rest for a while when possible too - but sometimes we're too hungry to wait!
