  • 3/4 cup cake flour see note
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour see note
  • 2 1/2 TBSPs sugar
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 TBSP vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup Horizon whole milk less 1 TBSP
  • 1 TBSP vinegar


  • Pour 1 cup of Horizon whole milk.  Remove a tablespoon of milk.  Stir in 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Place a skillet over low heat.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the oil, eggs, and homemade buttermilk. Stir together until just combined. The batter will be lumpy, do not overmix.
  • Spray the skillet with cooking spray and pour 1/4 cup of batter on the skillet and spread it out with the bottom of the measuring cup. As soon as bubbles begin to develop on top, flip the pancake. Be careful, the pancakes will be think and cook quickly. Allow it to cook another 30 seconds or so on the other side and remove to a plate.
  • Wipe down the skillet, spray with cooking spray and cook the next pancake.


Cake flour works best in this recipe, but if you don't want to buy a whole box, simply measure out 1 cup of all purpose flour, remove 2 tablespoons. Replace with 2 tablespoons of corn starch and sift multiple times to distribute the corn starch throughout. Measure out 3/4 of a cup using the instructions below.
To measure both flours, scoop them into the measuring cup, and then level off. Doing it this prevents the flour from being packed and using too much.
