I know you've heard it before but this is for real. These are hands down the BEST pancakes you will ever have. You can end your search and make these every Saturday from now until the end of your days and you will have felt like you found the fountain of youth...because you did. Pancakes make Saturdays feel like you're a kid again.

Aaron thinks it's way more fun if you have a cartoon from your childhood playing while you make them. I'm not joking. He puts the iPad on the counter and plays Duck Tails while he whips these up. 

The kids will eat these sans syrup they're so tasty. However you top yours, I hope these help you fill your table with happy smiling faces as you tackle a Saturday together.

The BEST Pancakes EVER

  • 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

To start, in large bowl combine the milk and vinegar and set aside for 5 minutes : this is CRUCIAL! It must sit together on it's own for at least 5 minutes before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. Look at you! You just made homemade Buttermilk!

While the milk and vinegar are setting, in a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Once the timer goes off for the milk, whisk the egg and melted butter into it. Pour the flour mixture into the milk mixture and whisk until the lumps are gone.

Now you're ready to start making some cakes. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray or butter. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until lightly browned on the other side.


Here's to making memories around your table!
