8 pancakes


  • 1 ¼ cups buttermilk

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 dash salt

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon butter, or as needed


  1. Mix the buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract in a bowl; stir in the sugar. Whisk in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, combining the batter with just a few strokes to moisten. Leave the lumps.

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and lemon juice together; gently stir into the batter. Refrigerate the batter for at least 30 minutes, up to 1 hour.

  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and grease with the butter. Pour 1/3 cup of batter per pancake into the skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the surface, about 2 minutes. Flip with spatula and brown the other side, about 2 more minutes.
