I love pancakes, especially buttermilk style pancakes.
It has always been a breakfast favorite of mine and I’m not sure why it took me so long to find a recipe for them or to make them here in Jamaica. Maybe it was because I thought we couldn’t get buttermilk? Maybe I didn’t think it could be made from scratch?
The timing for this was perfect as we hosted two volunteers last weekend and wasn’t sure what to make for breakfast. They are so good that we have had this three times in the last week. Yes, that good and so easy to make. Fluffy. Tasty. Perfect.
Recipe from Allrecipes.com – http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Fluffy-Pancakes-2/Detail.aspx
Ingredients – Makes about 6 normal size pancakes, about enough for 2 adults
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons white vinegar (Yes vinegar. A crucial and very important ingredient)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Combine wet ingredients: milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to “sour” (it won’t taste sour at all).
- 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.
- 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.
