These are so great to eat! Very fluffy and inexpensive. I make the whole batch and freeze them 3-4 to a small sandwich baggie. Then in the morning I pop them in the micro (I know I shouldn't do it in the bag but I am lazy...) for about 1 minute. Then I either top with applesauce or pour homemade fruit syrup on top for a quick nutritious breakfast!
- 2 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or white vinegar works also!)
- 1 large egg
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted (use 5 tablespoons for waffles)
- 2 cups flour (I often use 1/2 whole wheat & 1/2 white flour)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Whisk milk and lemon juice in a medium bowl and set aside to let thicken.
- Whisk the egg and cooled melted butter into the milk mixture.
- In a separate bowl, whisk dry ingredients together - flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt.
- Create a little "well" in the center of dry ingredient bowl and pour the milky mixture in the center.
- Whisk gently until just combined, there should still be lumps. Stirring too much makes the cakes tough, you want them light and airy!
- Heat a pan, griddle or waffle maker to medium heat and coat with butter or vegetable oil.
- For Pancakes: Pour pancake mixture by 1/4 cups and heat until large bubbles come to the top (about 1-2 minutes).
- Flip the pancake and wait another 1-2 minutes.
- For Waffles: Experiment with your waffle maker settings- you want a soft brown exterior with a lightly done interior- don't overcook!
Since it was 2 cups of milk, I used 2 tablespoon of vinegar. 1 tbs per cup like when I need buttermilk for a recipe. The pancakes had a great taste. Thanks That Napa Chicken Ranch :) Made for Alphabet chef tag game
Very good pancakes Grace. So easy and like you said so inexpensive. I used oil instead of butter and they came out light and fluffy. Also, the consistency of the batter is perfect..not too thick or too thin. I used 1/2 cup per pancake and got exactly 7 pancakes out of it... My family likes big pancake :) Thanks for posting the recipe.
