Perfect Pancake/Waffle Batter

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray for the griddle or waffle iron

In a large bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk until well blended. Add the milk, vinegar, oil, and sugar to the eggs and whisk until incorporated. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and whisk together until only small lumps remain. The batter will be very thick.

For pancakes: preheat a large non-stick skillet or cast iron over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and then add ¼ cup of the batter to the pan for each pancake. Cook until bubble appear on the top of the pancake, about 3 minutes, then continue cooking until golden brown on both sides. Carefully remove to a warming plate and repeat with remaining batter.

For waffles: preheat a waffle iron. Spray liberally with cooking spray and then add enough batter to barely coat the bottom of the iron (the batter will rise during cooking). Lower the lid of the waffle iron and cook for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Carefully remove to a warming plate and repeat with remaining batter.

  • Yields: 4-6 servings
