  • 2 cup flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 cup buttermilk To make one cup of buttermilk, place 1 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice in a measuring cup, then top off the remainder with milk. Mix and leave 5 minutes until curdled
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup cold carbonated water keep closed until using so it doesn't go flat


  • Whisk together all your dry ingredients and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients until well combined, then pour into dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Heat a non-stick griddle or skillet over medium heat, and melt a little butter on it or spray some non-stick spray.
  • When pan is hot, pour some batter on top (1/4-1/2 cup depending how big you like your pancakes), and cook until bubbles form on the surface of the batter and underside is golden brown, around 2-3 minutes. Flip and repeat on the other side.


To keep pancakes warm, Heat oven to 100 C (200 F) and place a baking sheet in the oven. Transfer every cooked pancake there to wait for it's friends to finish!
