Recipe type: Pancakes
Serves: 6
  • ½ cup wholemeal flour
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 cups milk + 1.5 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 generous teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 50 degrees Celcius. In a pyrex cup, mix together milk and vinegar (or lemon juice) to create buttermilk. Stir, and let stand whilst you work on the rest of the recipe.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar together.
  3. Add egg, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk until the mixture comes together, but don't overmix - lumps in the mixture are fine and will make your pancakes fluffy.
  4. Heat a frying pan or griddle to a medium heat, and lightly grease the pan with butter using a pastry brush. Use a ladle to drop pancake batter into the heated pan. The pancake is ready to flip once the edges start looking dry, and bubbles appear all over the surface - about 1 to 2 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, loose the edges of the pancake. Use a wooden spatula (or other more 'firm' spatula) to loosen the entire pancake, and flip. Cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute, and transfer onto baking tray into the heated oven whilst you cook the rest of the batter.
  5. Continue with the rest of the batter. Turn off the oven if you think it may be getting too hot - the pancakes will stay warm in the residual heat.
  6. Serve pancakes warm with maple syrup, cherry conserves, and whatever else you desire. Leftover pancakes are easily stored in the fridge and re-heated in the microwave.
