  2. Spray a large skillet or griddle with nonstick spray and heat over medium heat. Working in batches, pour 1/4 cup batter per pancake into pan. Cook 2 minutes, until tops begin to bubble and edges look cooked. Flip, then cook until lightly browned and set, about 1 minute. Remove pancakes from skillet; repeat with remaining batter, spraying the pan between batches as necessary.
