Pancakes didn't turn out so well on my electric stove top, so I invented these. They are light and airy and freeze well too. Try them with strawberry jam, dipped in syrup, or sprinkled with powdered sugar. Perfect for kid and adult brunches! This is a wonderful pancake recipe on its own too.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray 2 mini muffin tins with cooking spray.

  • Mix milk and vinegar together in a bowl; let stand until milk curdles, about 5 minutes. Beat in oil and egg.

  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; stir into milk mixture until smooth. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tins with a tablespoon or a small batter scoop.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until batter is risen and still pale, about 8 minutes. Remove from muffin cups with a silicone scraper.

Cook's Notes:

Buttermilk can be substituted for the milk and vinegar if desired.

These baked in 8 to 9 minutes in one of my ovens but took only 7 to 8 minutes in the other one, so just watch them.

I just made these and my kids are already planning for the next batch! I'm not an adventurous cook so I did the buttermilk substitution (1 1/4 cup) and, since I used a regular sized muffin tin, doubled the cook time (16 min). I also threw in diced strawberries since they're in season right now. Read More

I gave this a 2 rating mainly because of me. I have no idea what I did wrong. I followed the recipe to the T... and the did rise... then..... they sunk in and I had cups in the shape of the pan. and they stuck to the pan. I didn't see that coming. also my company.. oh boy.. was not impressed. I shouldn't try a new recipe when I have guest. Read More

As poppers, they didn't turn out well (They didn't rise). Maybe because I put a baking sheet under the mini muffin pans. I had so much batter left over, I made pancakes. They turned out excellent, and I will probably use this recipe as my go to for pancakes. Read More

Oh. My. Gosh. These are the best things ever made on this planet. My whole family completely destroyed them. They are really good and taste way better than actual pancakes. What is really fun about these is that you can put syrup and chocolate chips and anything else that you would put on normal pancakes. A+ these are amazing Read More

This. Is. Amazing!! I made them and they are so good!! It took me about an hour to do mostly because I’m 13 and a beginner baker. I highly recommend to beginner bakers or bakers with little kids who want to help! Read More

Made these this morning and they were so much better than regular pancakes. I used buttermilk and halve the recipe (cause we don’t need that many) Added a few chocolate chips to half and sliced strawberries to the other half. Can’t wait to make again! Thank you Read More

I absolutely love these! They were very fluffy and light! I added chocolate chips to mine, and i just sprinkled them over the top! I made extras so I can freeze them and have them tomorrow morning as well. Read More

I love these little poppers. I followed the recipe except for the top of them. A half a teaspoon of apricot all fruit and a nice handful of pecan pieces. I used greased regular muffin tins and only filled them about half full. Oh, I guess I did add a teaspoon and a half of vanilla. Next time maybe I will try red raspberry preserves. grammagennie Read More

Added ghiradelli mini chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed. Needed 9mins to fully bake. Kids loved them but said without chocolate chips they may not be as delicious.?? These do come out a bit crumbly so next time I ll try butter vs. oil and more vanilla. Read More
