If you make flapjacks or waffles often, which we do, you know that it can’t be done properly without a whisk. That’s because whisks help to create a smooth, lump-free batter. We prefer to use a dough whisk, especially for flapjacks. Dough whisks have a thick wire that loops around itself to form two loops. This unique design prevents over-mixing, while allowing you to reach hidden flour pockets and incorporate them back into the batter.
