Light and Fluffy Pancakes or Waffles...Just Like the Ones in Restaurants

While AJ, DS and DD#2 putting a round of golf (sorry, no picture,) creating their Pokemonia colony,

playing a game of UNO

dueling BeyBlade

DD#1 and I whisked up our YUMMY light and fluffy pancakes (also makes the crowd-pleaser, crispy waffles.) It is my youngest's all-time favorite breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He would even eat it cold. I love sunny day and today is it. A mild stroll to "Space Park" after, breakfast sounds perfect.

What is your favorite pancake/waffle recipe?

Ingredients (Makes about 11 medium-size pancakes or 16 waffles)
2 C Milk (buttermilk if desired)
1 T Lemon Juice
1 Large or 2 average-size Eggs
3 T melted butter
1 t vanilla extract
2 C Flour (Buckwheat, all-purpose, or your choice of preference)
2 T Sugar
2 t Baking Powder
½ t Baking Soda
½ t Salt

Warm a medium bowl. Whisk milk and lemon juice in it and set aside to let thicken.
In a separate bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
Whisk the egg and melted butter into the milk mixture.
Make a little "well" in the center of dry-ingredient bowl and pour the milky mixture in the well (keeping egg mixture bubbly while folding is the key.) Whisk gently until just combined, there should still be lumps. Don't over stir.

Heat a pan or griddle to medium heat and coat with butter or olive oil.
Pour pancake mixture by 1/3 cup and heat until large bubbles come to the top (about 1-2 minutes).

Add Chocolate Chip if desired or leave it plain for embellishment later.

Flip the pancake and wait another 1-2 minutes.

Served w/maple syrup or embellished with anything your heart so desire...berries, handmade preserve, whipped cream...we made eleven pancakes in 6" diameter out of this batch this morning. Now I'm off to Upland Sawyer Park "Space Park" with the kids.
