It's in the batter, melted. It's what the cakes are fried in. And a pat goes atop the finished product, along with the sweetener of one's choice. But the hard truth is that butter is not particularly well-equipped for one of those applications: frying. Who hasn’t spent a weekend morning laboring over a hot cast-iron skillet, waiting for the pancakes to finish cooking while butter sputters and smokes around their edges?

Blame it on the protein. As Serious Eats explains here, butter contains fat, water, and protein; when it's melted the water evaporates (it's the thing that causes butter to foam if you cook it on the stove for a while) but the proteins, having nowhere else to go, break down and burn. That's why clarified butter is good for high-heat stovetop cooking: the proteins have been previously removed, and what's left is pure butterfat.

"I'm very passionate about my pancakes philosophy, which is that pancakes need a lot of fat," said David Tamarkin, Epi's editor and a dogged student of pancake technique. He had been struggling with figuring out the perfect medium for pancake cooking and recently seized on coconut oil—unrefined coconut oil, specifically. As suggested, he uses quite a bit of it—about 2 tablespoons per batch; you could use a little less if you wanted, but not skimping on fat helps ensure the pancakes will be nice and crisp around the edges, still pillowy inside. It's the weekend. Live a little!

Along with creating crispy edges, the coconut oil is a slightly healthier fat than butter to cook in. Although it is a saturated fat, coconut oil is made up of about half lauric acid, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-cancer, and immune-boosting effects. While coconut oil has recently come under fire for its health benefit claims, opinion is still divided, and most experts agree in moderation it's fine.

And not only does unrefined coconut oil have the benefit of high-heat cooking, but David prefers it because it also adds a faint but pleasant coconut sweetness. Nothing overpowering—and remember, there's still a lot of butter involved in the pancakes—but nothing burned, either. Apply this coconut oil pancake principle to French toast, too—even waffles—and breathe easier over breakfast.
