You can also try gluten-free flour and oat milk in this recipe. Reader Amy says “Wow! These might be some of the best pancakes I’ve had. I used gluten-free flour, and oat milk in place of the regular milk, and they still turned out ultra fluffy and absolutely perfect. This will become my standard pancake recipe from now on!”
You can also use store-bought buttermilk instead of milk and white vinegar.

How to make easy and best Lazy Pancakes
Step 2 – In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix together.
Step 3 – Next, whisk together the eggs and butter into the homemade buttermilk.
Step 4 – Pour milk mixture into the flour mixture and whisk the pancake batter until combined and no lumps remain.
Step 5 – If adding optional fruit or chocolate chips, stir them in now just until combined.
Step 6 – Heat an electric griddle to 350 degrees F and coat it with nonstick cooking spray or cooking oil. I prefer oil for a crispier finish.
Step 7 – Pour 4 equal circles of batter onto the hot pan, cooking pancakes until bubbles appear on the surface and the bottom is golden brown.
Step 8 – Flip them over gently with a spatula and cook until the second side is golden brown. Each side should only take a few minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Step 9 – Add more oil if necessary and repeat to make 4 more pancakes.
Step 10 – Serve with your favorite pancake toppings and enjoy!
Let the melted butter cool slightly so it doesn’t pre-cook the eggs when whisking into the milk.
The acid in our homemade buttermilk reacts with the baking powder and baking soda in the pancake batter, creating air bubbles that make the pancakes so fluffy.
