To Make Pancakes

  • 1 recipe Homemade Pancake Mix
  • 1 3/ 4 cup milk or non-dairy milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice or white vinegar
  • Maple syrup, fresh fruit, butter, or whipped cream, for serving

Prepare the Pancake Batter


  • Step 1

    Add pancake mix to a large bowl.

  • Step 2

    Combine milk, oil, vanilla extract, lemon juice in a medium bowl.

  • Step 3

    Gradually stir milk mixture into dry ingredients to form a thick batter. Let batter sit for 10 minutes to hydrate.

  • Step 4

    Heat a medium or large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Once pan is preheated, coat lightly with nonstick spray. Reduce heat to low.

  • Step 5

    Preheat oven to warm (about 185F degrees).

  • Step 6

    Pour ⅓ cupfuls batter into pan, spreading out with the back of the measuring cup to a 5" circle. Let cook until the surface is dotted with bubbles and golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer pancakes to preheated oven to keep warm while you make the rest. If you prefer to make fewer, larger pancakes, use a ½ cup or 3/4 cup measuring cup to scoop batter and proceed as directed.

  • Step 7

    Serve pancakes hot with your favorite toppings, or at the very least, maple syrup!
