Pancakes are a classic breakfast staple loved by many. However, making pancakes from scratch can seem daunting, especially for those who have never tried it before. But fear not, with this easy homemade pancake recipe, you’ll be able to whip up a batch of delicious, fluffy pancakes in no time!
The first step in making these pancakes is to create a buttermilk substitute by adding vinegar to milk. This will create the perfect light and fluffy texture that makes pancakes so delicious. Mix 1 ½ cups of milk with 4 tablespoons of white vinegar in a measuring cup and stir. Let it sit while you prepare the dry ingredients.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together 2 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 4 tablespoons of sugar. Set the dry ingredients aside.
Next, add 2 eggs and 4 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter to the milk mixture and mix well. Then pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth and airy.
In a large skillet, melt a couple of pats of butter over medium heat. Using a small ladle or ice cream scooper, pour the batter onto the skillet. Cook until bubbles appear on the top side, then flip the pancake and cook until lightly browned.
Serve the pancakes with real maple syrup and enjoy your delicious homemade pancakes!
