1. Fold ingredients just until mixed. Over mixing makes pancakes like cement. Because, it over works gluten forming proteins.

2. Don't let batter sit. This makes pancakes tough.

3. Stir that batter from bottom up one time in between each pancake.

4. Use a drop of olive oil in pan with each pancake.

5. Buy high-grade olive oil.

6. These corn cakes are thick and dense.
