The Ultimate Pancakes

The Ultimate Pancakes    
This week is National Pancake Week! What better way to celebrate then with a fresh, homemade plateful?! 

You'll need...
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons white or cider vinegar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter, melted
cooking spray
pats of butter
To make... 
Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour".
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg, vanilla and butter into "soured" milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until most of the lumps are gone-- the mixture will be foamy at this point. Let mixture sit for 20 minutes to thicken.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Add a small bit of butter for flavor. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
Serve with syrup and/or honey-butter!
