Put the wet and dry ingredients into separate bowls and whisk each. Just a gentle mixing of each.
Add roughly half of the dry mix into the wet and whisk smooth, not too long.
Add the remainder of the dry mix and barely whisk together. Make sure all of the flour is mixed inches You don't want to beat this too much as it strengthens the gluten in the flour and makes the pancakes tougher. The batter should not be runny. In fact, it should be fairly thick. If possible, let the batter rest for a few minutes to allow the baking soda and baking powder to perform their magic. This will make for airier pancakes.
