The Ingredients: Simple yet Magical

In a large bowl, sift together 1 and a third cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and a tablespoon of baking powder. Whisk it all up to create a fluffy mixture. Set it aside, and let’s move on to the wet ingredients.

The Wet Ingredients: The Key to Fluffiness

In a measuring cup, combine 1 cup of buttermilk and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, don’t worry! I’ll share some substitutes in my blog post. To make sure these pancakes turn out extraordinary, warm up the mixture in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Then, add in one egg and 4 tablespoons of melted butter. Incorporate everything by whisking it up until it’s well combined.

Mixing it All Together: The Perfect Pancake Batter

Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry mixture. Mix everything together until just combined. Avoid overmixing, as we want our pancakes to be light and fluffy. Once you have a smooth batter with no pockets of flour, you’re ready to start cooking!

Cooking: A Delight for All Senses

Heat up your cooktop on low and melt a knob of butter on a non-stick pan. Spoon about a third of a cup of batter onto the pan, making smaller ones for the kids and larger ones for the adults. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan, as we want each pancake to have enough space to rise beautifully.

Flip the pancakes when you see bubbles forming on the surface. Cook them to perfection, until they turn golden brown on both sides. You’ll be amazed at the fluffiness and delicious aroma emanating from your pan!

The Finishing Touch: Indulge and Enjoy

Serve these fluffy delights with a pat of butter and a generous drizzle of real maple syrup. The combination of sweetness and a touch of salt will make your taste buds dance with joy. Grab a fork and savor every fluffy bite. And if you’re feeling extra indulgent, pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea to accompany your pancake feast.

Now that you know the secret to the perfect pancakes, there’s no reason not to treat yourself and your loved ones to this delightful breakfast. So, go ahead, give it a try, and let me know how your pancakes turn out. And remember, a fluffy pancake can turn any morning into a good one!
