  • 1 3/4 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Whisk together the milk and vinegar in a medium bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients - sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the eggs, melted butter and vanilla to the bowl with the milk and vinegar. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the flour mixture to the milk mixture and whisk to combine.
  • Spray nonstick cooking spray into a large skillet over medium heat. Pour ¼ cup of batter into the pan to create pancakes that are about 5” wide. Once the pancake begins to bubble (about 2 to 3 minutes), flip and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on the other side. The pancakes should be cooked to golden brown on both sides.


  • White Vinegar: You can substitute lemon juice instead of the vinegar, if desired.
  • Flour: You can substitute traditional all purpose flour with gluten free all purpose baking flour to make this recipe gluten free.
  • Sugar: You can use another type of sugar substitute instead. Maple syrup, honey and agave work great.
  • Eggs: The eggs help create the fluffy texture, you can substitute with applesauce or another egg replacer, but the pancakes might not be as fluffy.
To keep pancakes warm while cooking, place them on a baking sheet in an oven set to 200 degrees F. The temperature will keep them warm without continuing to cook them.
