It seems fitting that these pancakes ended up being extremely flat.
I never understood why the expression is “as flat as a pancake” when, if you go to a restaurant to order pancakes, they advertise how thick and fluffy they are. Well that was what I was going for with these pancakes in the morning. What happened?
Yeah, that happened to prove a point right? Flat pancakes are just as good as thick and fluffy pancakes. Sure, I’ll pretend it was intentional.
Not quite a pancake, not quite a crepe, these were delicious none the less.
What you’ll need:
-3/4 cup milk
-2 tablespoons vinegar
-1/2 cup all purpose flour
-1 tablespoon sugar (I used splenda)
-1/2 cup oats
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-2 tablespoons olive oil
1. In a small bowl, combine milk and vinegar and let it stand for around 5 minutes to “sour”
2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
3. Whisk vanilla extract, egg and olive oil into the “soured” milk. Pour the flour mixture into
the wet ingredients, and whisk it together until the batter is smooth.
4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking
spray. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, and flip when bubbles
are covering the surface of the pancake. Flip and cook the other side
until it is golden.
