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:

  • All-purpose flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • Baking powder
  • Granulated sugar
  • Baking soda
  • Fine salt
  • Large egg
  • Milk (2% or whole)
  • Distilled white vinegar
  • Grapeseed oil (vegetable okay too)

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) !!
