  • 1 cup flour (white or whole wheat)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup milk, soy milk, some other milkish product
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider or white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg


  1. Whisk the dry ingredients together.
  2. Separately, whisk the wet ingredients together. (If you have real buttermilk, use that instead of the milk + vinegar.)
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix that up well.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and oil it with a teaspoon of oil or some spray oil or what-have-you. Wait until it’s good and hot then, using a 1/4 c measure, pour some pancake batter on it.
  5. Now wait. Wait until they are covered in cratery-looking holes and the peripheries are looking dried out.
  6. Now flip. Deftly. Let them cook another 2 minutes or so until the other side is nice and brown.
  7. Serve those while you cook the rest, re-oiling the skillet between batches. This will make 8-10 pancakes, enough for 3-4 people, or one Paul Bunyan.
