I love breakfast for dinner but I don’t have it nearly enough. One thing I never make for myself for breakfast is pancakes. I just can’t make them. But this time I was determined to master them. This recipe was simple and just right. They were light and, as the recipe says, fluffy. The key was to let the pan cool off in between pancakes otherwise mine would burn.
The recipe, as is, didn’t make very many – probably around 12-15 small pancakes.
Fluffy Pancakes (recipe slightly adapted from Allrecipes.com)
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 10 minutes to “sour”. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg, vanilla, and butter into “soured” milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
