Always wondered how to get your pancakes nice and fluffy? Well, there’s a secret ingredient involved! Read how to get super fluffy pancakes here.
Yes yes, this is another one of our creations… Cousins cooking! Who am I talking about? My cousin of course! Dagmar, from My Weird Blogs / Vlogs. She stayed over at my place and we made a couple of videos, including this one for super fluffy pancakes. You can watch some of the other videos we did on her channel or on mine, of course.
We have kind of a record for making pancakes… And dancing while doing so. You see, many years ago we worked at the same group of restaurants at this place called Centerparcs. Because we weren’t from there, we lived in one of the cottages on the park and we had such a good summer! We would work almost every evening, and spend the rest of the time relaxing and doing random things. Ohhh, if only we had our blogs back then… We could’ve gotten so many cool posts and videos up!
Anyway, one time we decided to make pancakes and then for some reason we figured it would be a good idea to make a short video, too. So we filmed ourselves while we did this super random dance, Dagmar holding the pancake-pan and myself using the spatula as a prop. Of course, we had to laugh so much…. It looked ridiculous! So yes, we put it on Facebook. And all our co-workers watched it, at work, so we immediately were well-known amongst the staff. Typical! I still smile every time I make pancakes, as it reminds me of that time 😉
Aaanyway, fluffy pancakes is what you came here for, right? I’m like one of those annoying retail workers that keep talking to you even though you just wanted to ask a simple question, sorry!
The secret ingredient for these fluffy pancakes… is vinegar. Whaaat?! Yes, really! You don’t taste it at all, but it helps create these huuuge bubbles in your pancake mixture in combination with the baking soda. The first time I tried this was with waffles, and I was amazed at how much the mixture puffed up!
Hope you enjoy this recipe and the pancakes, and I’ll see you soon,
Super fluffy pancakes
- 250 g flour
- 500 ml milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 2 tbsp vinegar
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp salt
Mix together the flour, sugar and baking soda.
Add the eggs and mix through quickly. Start pouring the milk into the bowl, while whisking to combine everything together.
Once this is a smooth mixture, add the vanilla, salt and vinegar. Give one more stir, and set aside for at least 10 minutes to let the vinegar & baking soda work their magic!
Heat up a frying pan and add half a spoon of butter. Once this is hot enough, add 2 spoonfuls of the pancake mixture or enough to cover the surface of the pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides, and serve!
