  • 1 Cup All purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp Salted butter Melted
  • 1/4 Tsp Ground nutmeg
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Tbsp White vinegar



  • Pour milk into a cup, add the white vinegar and set aside.

Other ingredients

  • Measure out the flour, add the nutmeg, baking powder and baking soda  and mix with a fork or whisk.
  • Melt butter in microwave. 10 seconds should do the trick. 
  • Crack and beat the egg. Add vanilla to the egg
  • Pour the melted butter, milk ( buttermilk) and eggs into the flour and mix with a whisk till just incorporated 
  • Heat up frying pan, I prefer to use the non stick but any good pan would work.
  • Spray pan with cooking spray. With a quarter measuring cup, scoop batter into frying pan. My pan takes 4 pancakes at a time.
  • When you see some bubbles on the surface of the pancakes, it's time to flood o to the other side of the pancake. At this point I turn off the heat and allow residual heat from the pan cook the other side. This prevents the pancakes from burning.
  • Take out ready pancakes, wipe off the grease which would look burnt. Then turn on heat and repeat steps 6 and 7 until all the batter is used up. 
  • Serve with a dollop of butter or whipped cream, and pancake syrup topped with berries. Don't forget the warm milk or hot chocolate to accompany it 


I usually don't add sugar to my pancake mix because the syrup already had sugar.
