Steps In Making Classic Pancake

  1. To prepare buttermilk, in a jar add room temperature milk and vinegar. Mix well and keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Take a large bowl and sieve all the dry ingredients; refined flour, caster sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda and mix well.
  3. For wet ingredients add egg, melted butter and vanilla extract to the prepared buttermilk and mix everything together.
  4. Now pour all the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently fold them together. The pancake batter will not be very smooth but that  is fine, don’t try to remove the small lumps by over mixing it.
  5. Place a nonstick pan over medium flame and add some oil and butter.
  6. Once it turns hot, wipe off the excess oil and butter with a tissue paper.
  7. Now pour around 1/2 cup of pancake batter into the pan and let it cook for around 2 minutes on medium flame.
  8. When small bubbles are formed on the pancake, flip the side and cook for another 2 minutes or until it gets a nice light golden brown colour on the top.
  9. Serve hot with butter, maple syrup, honey or powdered sugar. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • While making buttermilk always use room temperature or slightly warm milk.
  • You can replace white vinegar with a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice.
  • Always prepare the wet and dry ingredients separately for this pancake recipe. Later combine both together. Do not over mix else the refined flour will release gluten and the pancakes wont be fluffy.
  • Never press the pancakes after flipping them, this will remove all the air bubbles inside them and result in flat pancakes.
  • Don’t add excess oil or butter while cooking the pancakes, else they will turn out greasy.
  • Do not make very large pancakes, else they will cook from the outside but remain uncooked from the inside.
