Fluffy Cidermilk Pancakes - light and fluffy and tangy sweet, these quick and easy pancakes will be your new favorite for the weekend ...or a Tuesday.
Pancakes are back! I have been on a very long oatmeal binge. I have been thinking of sharing what I do - because it is an odd savory sweet spectacle that works. I love a salty sweet combination. and honestly? After these pancakes, I'll be right back on the oatmeal. I love it and it sticks with me.
So - pancakes! I have had this "Cidermilk Pancake" idea in my head for a while. Sort of the buttermilk substitute, but ... more cider? Kind of a sweet and tangy flavor.
I like a fluffy pancake. I remember the old timey classic recipe from Grandpa Z always included melted butter in the batter. So I did that. I also added cornstarch to the flour, which essentially turns flour into a cake flour.
Cake flour = fluffy pancakes?
I mean, look. Look at the fluffy. Crispy outsides, fluffy insides.
and the butter topping. oh, the butter!
Miyoko sometimes makes a special edition butter (please Miyoko, bring back the Cheesy Garlic VeganButter?), and her latest is Flower Power - a sweet butter dotted with colorful edible flowers. It is good.
and it looks so fun on the pancakes!
