I’ve been having those pancakes for a while now… just never cared to share the recipe because it’s not something umm, “new”? I don’t know! I don’t share what I do often.
My family has the box mix version a lot. It’s good, it’s probably one of the best mixes out there. But… it feels good to make it yourself and customize the amount of certain ingredients!
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups buttermilk (or use the alternative: for every cup of buttermilk, add 1 TBS vinegar to a cup of milk)
1/4 cup white sugar
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup vegetable oil
- Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Puree until smooth. (I like using a fork at this point to get everything to blend.. not whisk it.)
- Pour batter onto the griddle, to form 5 pancakes. Flip pancakes when edges appear to dry. Cook pancakes on other side for same amount of time until golden brown.
I would really like to tell you that I time my cooking, but I don’t… I just cook them till I think they’re done!
What I do: top each pancake with a 1/4 teaspoon butter and stack them on top of each other. It gives the pancakes an amazing flavor and some crisp! and then… you know what’s next… uncontrollably pour syrup/honey/whatever on the pancakes till you think they’re soaked enough!
Tip: don’t have this everyday. You’ll be fat in… 1.32 months.
