Servings 16 pancakes


  • 3/4 cup Milk whole milk is best but any milk will work
  • 2 tbsp. White vinegar
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp. Butter, melted


  • Combine milk with vinegar in a bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Whisk the egg and melted butter into the milk and vinegar.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk until most of the lumps are gone. But the key is not to over mix!
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat (or adjust griddle to medium). Lightly coat with butter or cooking spray. Using an ice cream scoop or a 1/4 measuring cup, scoop batter onto skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula and cook a few moments longer until golden on the other side and fluffy.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite pancake toppings.
