How to make Fluffy Pancakes?

Ever wonder what the secret is to making fluffy pancakes? I am going to tell you!

THE SECRET. Let the batter SIT for 10 minutes for adding it to the griddle.

Having baking powder and baking soda help too. But, letting the batter sit will give you the fluffiest softest award winning pancakes ever!

BUTTERMILK. This recipe calls for 3/4 cup of buttermilk. I almost never have buttermilk in my fridge. But don’t worry – I have a trick for that. If you don’t have buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon of vinegar and 3/4 cup milk to a medium bow and let “sour” for 5 minutes.

PANCAKE BATTER. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl and mix it all together. Set aside. Whisk the egg and butter into the buttermilk and mix together. Add the flour mixture and whisk until lumps are gone. Let batter set for 10 minutes (remember- fluffy pancakes!).

COOK. Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cups of the batter onto the skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the top (about 2-3 minutes). Flip with a spatula and cook the other side until browned.

ADDING FRUIT. Feel free to add fruit to your fluffy pancakes. We sometimes add raspberries, blueberries, or strawberries straight in the batter before cooking! You can even add in some chocolate chips for a fun twist.
