Fluffy Pancake Recipe

We are a pancake loving family and with two young kids there are a lot of creative and fun ways to play around with this classic dish.

Today we decided to makeshift dinosaur pancakes and I decided to throw in an Elmo pancake for good measure.


1 1/2 cups of milk

2 tablespoons white vinegar

1 egg

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup whole wheat flour (or any flour of your choosing)

2 tablespoons white sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Chocolate chips and Blueberries to taste


Mix all of the dry ingredients together  


Put the melted butter and egg in a bowl together


Pour the vinegar into the milk and let it sit for five minutes until it thickens slightly


Mix all of the wet ingredients together 


Mix until you get a mildly thin consistency and use an ice cream scoop to pour the batter. It pours out the perfect amount of batter.

Use a nonstick pan, on a medium heat and put the batter directly on with no use of cooking sprays, oils or butter.


Cook until golden brown on both sides


I couldn’t find my dinosaur cookie cutter so I improvised with a boot cookie cutter 😉



I added a chocolate chip as the dino “eye”. You can also use a blueberry


Dino buddies 😉


Same thing with Elmo



This is a great way to get the little a to eat their fruit


Serve with real maple syrup and enjoy!
