The Best Fluffy Pancake Recipe


I make pancakes at least 2-3 times a week. They are my favorite and the kids love them. These pancakes are TO DIE FOR. Even my husband loves them, and he’s not usually a big fan of pancakes/waffles/etc. They are so fluffy and are great with some peanut butter and syrup.

2 Tbsp white vinegar

3/4 cup milk

1 egg

2 Tbsp butter, melted

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup flour

2 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

First add the vinegar and milk together in a separate bowl to “sour” the milk. Let sit while you mix the dry ingredients.

Mix all dry ingredients together.

Add vanilla, butter, and egg to your milk mixture. Beat until frothy (this is important for fluff purposes).

Slowly add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients while stirring, and mix until lumps are gone. Don’t overmix or they won’t be as fluffy!

Coat your pan with cooking spray and heat over low to medium low heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into the pan and cook until pancake starts to bubble up. Flip and cook other side for another minute or 2, until it’s golden brown.

We like to spread peanut butter on our pancakes and then drizzle them in syrup, but these pancakes are good with any topping of your choice. This recipe makes about 6-8 pancakes. We usually have leftovers and, if we’re being honest here, I let them sit on the plate and snack on them plain and cold throughout the day. They are so good!
