Mini Buttermilk Pancakes: quick & simple, fluffy, bite-size pancakes with favorite jam or sour cream on a side. | olgainthekitchen.com

Over a decade ago, one of my sisters took a cooking class and one day brought this recipe home. I would say it became a staple in our home for breakfast, lunch and sometimes even dinner. Because we had 6 kids still in the house after 2 of my sisters got married then, we made 4-5 servings to have enough for everybody. I never purchase any boxed pancakes mixes as those always lack of some ingredient or too much of another ingredient and it’s almost impossible to make it right. I made a few adjustments to the original recipe because as we know every lady who spends time in the kitchen, has her own taste preferences for every dish 🙂

Pancakes Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk (I use 2%)
  • 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon oil (I use grapeseed oil)

How to Make Easy Pancakes:

1. Preheat skillet over low-medium heat. (using nonstick doesn’t require oil.). Place a sieve over a medium bowl, combine, sift and whisk: 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 2 tsps baking powder, 1 tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp fine salt.

2. In a separate bowl or large measuring cup, combine and whisk 1 cup milk and 1 tbsp distilled white vinegar. Then add to it 1 egg and 1 tbsp grapeseed oil (canola or vegetable ok too). Whisk well to combine.

3. Make a hole in the center of dry ingredients and pour the liquid mixture into it. Whisk all ingredients well, until you get lump-free, smooth, pudding-like batter. Pour batter 1 tbsp at a time onto a heated skillet or griddle (I use a measuring scoop). When you start seeing little bubbles and gold-ish sides – it’s time to flip those pancakes. Enjoy warm pancakes with either jam or sour cream on a side (our 2 favorites) !!

      Hi Karly, thank you? These are our #1 breakfast at home. I even started measuring dry ingredients into little plastic bags, writing what wet ingredients are needed and then any morning I grab a bag, whisk and breakfast ready! Let me know what you think of these!!?

  • My kids’ favorite replacement for cupcakes...Ukrainian Old-Fashioned 🍯 Babka! It’s just like a sheet cake with a bit of frosting on top. Mom’s recipe book says “babka” but it’s also called “kovrizhka” (I think I’m saying it right). Such an easy dessert. Little preparation. The perfect treat!!
