Fluffiest of Pancakes

Ever have those lazy days where  you realize it’s 9:00 and you haven’t thought about dinner yet? Well, it was one of those nights and breakfast for dinner seemed like an easy meal.  When I read that these pancakes had vinegar in them, I was curious on how they would taste. Now, let me tell you- these were delicious (you definitely couldn’t taste the vinegar)! They are light, fluffy, and didn’t get soggy after the syrup settled.. just like the original source said! Hooray!!

*Since making these the first time, I attempted them again and they came out even taller! I think the difference was that I let it sit a little longer and stirred it as little as possible.

The Fluffiest of Pancakes

(original source)

What you’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar (see note)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar (I used 3)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

What to do:

  • Combine the milk and vinegar in a small bowl for 10 minutes to “sour”.  This makes the “soured milk”, which is not the same as sour milk.  Set aside.
  • Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.  In a smaller bowl, whisk the soured milk, egg, vanilla, and melted butter together.  Pour the dry ingredients and whisk until most of the lumps are gone but be careful- don’t over mix! Let sit undisturbed for 10 minutes.
  • Once the batter is getting bubbly, carefully use a 1/2 cup measuring cup to gently scoop out batter and place on buttered grill/pan.  Cook until bubbles appear on the surface and flip over to cook the other side.  Both sides should be golden brown. (feeds 3-4 people)

Remember to stir as little as possible- they won’t be as fluffy if you pop all the air bubbles! Enjoy!
