    I may have done something wrong…the ‘batter’ was WAY too thick so I added more milk till it was the consistency of pancake batter and I cooked them for 3 mins each side, they looked great but the entire middle of every cake was REALLY doughy. Is there a trick so that it won’t be doughy? Thanks.

    Amcken3, just start over and the consistency will be good. I used whole milk one time and the results were great. Be sure that the grill is not to hot and that the bubbles come to the top of the pancake before it is turned and that the surface is dull, not shiny any more. I think that at that point it is cooked through and it only needs to brown on the second side.
