    In a non stick pan add a few knobs of butter and when foaming add the mixture with a tablespoon leaving a gap between each one. When they start to bubble in the middle they are ready to flip. As soon as you turn them in the pan they will rise instantly and double in size. Remove from the heat and dab away any excess butter with a piece of kitchen paper.
