wet into dry, or dry into wet?

SpanLynn | Aug 13, 2012 04:31 AM

I have several good pancake recipes, but have a question, because I can't keep them straight.

Some recipes call for the separately mixed dry ingredients to be added to the liquid ingredients. Equally as many recipes call for those liquid ingredients to be added to the dry ingredients (you know, "make a well", etc.)

Is there a basic rule of thumb I'm missing? Does it matter if I always mix the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients (which I find combines more easily), rather than trying to remember which ones call for liquid into dry, and which call for the dry into the wet.

I have a B&B, and make pancakes regularly for my guests, but am not always at my most alert at 6 a.m. This confusion doesn't help.

thanks.
