Light and Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

Grandchildren tested and often requested: A very yummy pancake that rises high and light!

What better than a delicious pancake breakfast with your favorite three year old during a late winter snowstorm!

I received this text a couple days ago...

and, of course, I excitedly drove right over to bring Chloe here for a few days.
Because I can't resist moments like these...
When she comes down from the nursery bedecked in her favorite dress-up clothes and her princess tiara. 

Or when she snoozed with the pup.

And keeps me company as I drive to the dog groomer.
So when Chloe asked for pancakes, I whipped up my all-time favorite recipe.

To ready us for shoveling 8 more inches of this stuff.

Fluffy Pancakes


3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted
cooking spray

1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour".

2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into "soured" milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.

3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side

I always double recipe because it only makes about 7 pancakes. If there are leftovers, the pancakes freeze well and reheat well in the microwave. I get about 18 3-4 inch pancakes from a double recipe.

I prefer to top my pancakes with fruit but if you like, stir blueberries or chocolate chips into the batter before cooking.

Cool completely before separating between layers of waxed paper and storing in freezer bags. Heat from frozen in microwave on high for just about a minute. They taste like they were just made!

This is my go-to recipe for pancakes because they are so good any time of the year.

We even like to have them for dinner with a side of bacon or sausage.

I wouldn't be able to resist a request like that either, sweet photos and yummy looking pancakes. BTW I'd rather be digging in the garden instead of shoveling snow....spring will be here soon.

What a precious time! It's been a long time since we had pancakes for breakfast--it used to be a regular, my wholewheat recipe. MAybe we stopped because they weren't soft and fluffy like yours. :-)

You always share such great recipes. We love pancakes and I always make extra for the freezer and they always taste fresh from the freezer as well. Sweet photos!
