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!”

How to make Pancakes with Vinegar:

If adding optional fruit, stir it in now just until combined.

Heat an electric skillet to 350 degrees F and coat with cooking spray or cooking oil. I prefer oil for a crispier finish.

Pour 4 equal circles of batter onto the skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the surface and the bottom is golden brown.
