Hurriedly, I read the container again. Nope, no step 4. The bottle did say that if I had any comments I should save the bottle and call 1.800.345.2443. I didn't have a comment... I had a question. What's the number to call if you have questions?!?! It also gave me www.bisquick.com. So, I logged on and went to the tip section. Finally, I had an answer. It said, "Flip pancakes only once! Repeated flipping will toughen the pancakes. Pancakes are ready to flip when they're puffed, covered with bubbles and slightly dry around the edges. Cook the other side until it is golden brown." Hello?!?! Why is this not on the container? Luckily, I knew exactly when to flip my first pancake...after I saw the smoke rising up and smelled something burning. I wouldn't have burned it if the container had all the instructions on it. Doesn't Bisquick know that there are people out there that have to eat, but don't know how to cook? Those people (me...) need ALL the instructions. We need to know when to flip a pancake! You Live, You Learn.
(PS...My pancakes were more golden brown but for some reason every picture that I upload to my blog has muted colors. If you know why this happens, or how to fix this, please let me know. Thanks!)
