Fluffy pancake/waffle batter

[vegetarian] not that thin, limp stuff.

Yields about 6 pancakes or waffles.


  • 1 3/4ths cups buttermilk
    • You can create buttermilk with milk a splash of white vinegar.
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups flour (all purpose, self-rising, cake)
  • 1 heaping tbs baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 20 g sugar
  • 4 g vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs butter


  1. If creating buttermilk, curdle milk with vinegar in a bowl by combining and letting sit for a few minutes while going through the following steps.
  2. Melt butter until softened but not fully melted in a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup.
  3. Add sugar to butter container.
  4. Crack egg and separate the egg white from the yolk. Pour the yolk in the butter-sugar container, and the egg white in a separate bowl.
  5. Mix the yolk, butter, and sugar until combined.
  6. Beat the egg white until fluffy and white. You can use a mixer which should get it to a good consistency in a minute, or you can hand mix for a few minutes using a fork or whisk.
  7. Add the buttermilk (or curdled milk from step 1) to the yolk-butter-sugar mix. Lightly mix.
  8. If the mix is in a small measuring cup or bowl, pour it into a larger mixing bowl.
  9. Add baking powder to the bowl and lightly mix. The mixture should begin bubbling and foaming.
  10. Add baking soda and vanilla extract. Lightly mix.
  11. Add flour and lightly mix. Add more flour if the consistency isn't right, mixing as you go along until the consistency is good.
  12. Fold in the egg white to the mix.
  13. You're ready to cook!
