Pantry Pleaser


This next recipe was introduced to me by Laura V. when she and her husband stayed with us this past Fall.  She found this delicious recipe on Pinterest and made it for us as a “thank you” for having them up for the weekend and it was SO GOOD!!  I made this on Sunday for my sister and her family while they were up here and it was perfect “entertaining food.”  The title is a tiny misleading since I do not have a pantry (sigh), but it is one of those recipes where you should have most, if not all, ingredients somewhere in your house.  Wake up, get your bake on, and enjoy!

Best Pancakes Ever pancakes

*recipe found at Coleen’s Recipes

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp white vinegar (see note)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp white sugar (I used 3)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla



Combine the milk and vinegar in a small bowl for 10 minutes to “sour”.This is an important step and it is called “soured milk” which is much different that sour milk. I guarantee you will NOT taste the vinegar in the final product. Set aside.


Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk the soured milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter together. Pour into the dry ingredients and whisk until most of the lumps are gone, but DO NOT OVER BEAT!!

The batter will be thick, don’t add any more liquid. LET THE BATTER SIT UNDISTURBED FOR TEN MINUTES!! After 10 minutes, you will see bubbles in the batter, very important DO NOT STIR AGAIN.

GENTLY dip out (don’t pour out) 1/2 cup of batter and place it on a buttered grill or frying pan. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake and then flip with a spatula and brown the other side.



This recipe only feeds about 3 or 4 people, but doubles or even triples nicely
