Fluffy Pancakes

Who doesn't love warm fluffy pancakes? Put your hands down. If you don't enjoy fluffy cakes of happiness, read on to the next post.
In all seriousness, pancakes are easy, versatile, and can show off your creativity. I made these this past father's day for my dad and he loved them topped with my blueberry sauce. Go ahead, get cooking!

  • 1 3/4 cup of buttermilk 
    •  --OR 1 1/2 cups milk with 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter


If not using butter milk, Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour". Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk eggs, vanilla and 2 Tbs of  butter into "soured" milk. (*Note-The butter will not stay melted if the liquids are cold. Let them sit out for bit.) Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and whisk until lumps are gone. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and melt a pat of butter (of the remaining 2 Tbs) before pouring the batter for each pancake. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter (or more for bigger ones. I do like 1/3 cp.) onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side. Enjoy!
