  • ¾ cup milk + 2 tablespoons white vinegar or lemon juice substitute with 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted


  • In a measuring cup or small bowl, combine the milk with vinegar or lemon juice and set aside for 5 minutes. The milk will become lumpy. Skip this step if using buttermilk
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and baking soda. Add the egg, vanilla and butter into the milk mixture and whisk until combined. Pour the wet ingredients over the flour mixture and whisk until most of the lumps are gone. Be careful not to overmix, as this will result in tough pancakes. Some lumps are okay
  • Allow the pancake batter to rest for a few minutes (~5 minutes) while heating a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Pour ¼ cupfuls of batter onto the skillet or pour pancake batter into a squeeze bottle and squeeze batter onto skillet. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface and underside if golden brown. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side and no raw batter appears on the sides of the pancakes. Serve immediately or place in the oven on low/warm setting to keep warm until serving


  • Store cooked pancakes in the fridge up to 5 days. Warm in the oven or microwave
  • Cooked pancakes may be frozen. Place pancakes in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze at least one hour. Place in a freezer-safe bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature or warm in the oven or microwave
