I've never been happy with my pancakes until today. Usually, I am dissatisfied with the flavor and texture. However, today I found a new recipe that makes really fluffy, tasty pancakes. Max and I LOVED them! Hope you can try this pancake recipe and enjoy them, too!
FAVORITE PANCAKE RECIPE
Recipe from Coleen's Recipes
(Recipe Makes 4 Pancakes)
3/4 Cups Milk
2 Tablespoons White Vinegar
1 Cup Flour
2 Tablespoons White Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Butter (Melted)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Combine milk and vinegar together to create soured milk. Let sit for about 10 minutes. Don't worry! I promise your pancakes won't taste like vinegar or "sour" =)
Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate smaller bowl, mix the soured milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir together with whisk. IMPORTANT: Don't over stir it, just until most of the lumps are gone. The batter will be thick, and that is good!
Let the mixture sit undisturbed for 10 minutes. This will allow air bubbles to form and will help make your pancakes fluffy and thick.
Melt butter in a frying pan or griddle. If you want a more crispy, greasy outside to your pancake, use a lot of butter in the pan. Once butter is melted and sizzling, gently scoop out the batter with a 1/2 measuring cup, DON'T POUR batter or stir the batter at all once it has been sitting for 10 minutes. The less disturbed it is, fluffier and thicker your pancakes will be.
You can add whatever fruit you love the best. Max loves banana pancakes so I put bananas in ours, I also made a big blueberry one at the end. For sweeter blueberry pancakes you can mix the blueberries in a little bit of sugar first before adding them to the pancakes:
When pancakes start to bubble, it's time to flip them. When they are all cooked, butter them right after taking them off the pan/griddle. Enjoy!!!!
