Ingredients
  • 2 cups (10oz/280g) all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
To make the batter add:
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 2 cups (16 fl oz/ ½ litre) buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons (2oz/60g) flavorless oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract , optional
Instructions
  1. Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Place into a sealable bag and store for up to 2 months.
  3. To make the pancake batter: Whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, oil and vanilla extract, if using.
  4. Add the liquid to the dry mix and starting lightly mixing together. The secret to thick, fluffy pancakes is not to over mix. Lumps are ok, resist the urge to mix more.
  5. Put a heavy bottom frying pan or griddle on medium heat-low heat.
  6. Spoon one big spoon of the batter per pancake.
  7. Cook for roughly 4 minutes on one side. It is time to turn them over when you see bubbles forming on the top of the pancake and the edges turn color (forming bubbles on top is really important because they hold your pancake up and keep it thick, I call them pancake pillars.
  8. Flip and cook on the other side a little longer, until brown. Enjoy with butter and maple syrup.
