A few weeks back, I did a cooking group with my beneficiaries and we made American pancakes with carmelized apples. (pictures here.) The reaction of my beneficiaries and colleagues to the pancakes was surprising.  You’d have thought I’d brought them fire.

Favorite Pancakes (adapted slightly from

  • 3/4 cup milk (lapte)
  • 2 TBSP white vinegar (o?et)
  • 1 cup flour (faina alb?)
  • 2 TBSP white sugar (zah?r)
  • 1 tsp baking powder (praf de copt)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (bicarbonat de sodiu)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (sare)
  • 1 egg (oua)
  • 2 TBSP oil (or melted butter) (ulei sau unt topit)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (esen?? de vanilie)
  1. Combine the milk and vinegar and set aside for 5 minutes to sour.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients — flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
  3. Add egg, vanilla extract and butter to the soured milk.
  4. Combine wet and dry ingredients, mixing until lumps are gone.
  5. Let stand for a few minutes. You’ll see bubbles form in the batter — that’s good.
  6. Pour a 1/4 cup of the batter onto a heated skillet, prepared with a little oil.
  7. Flip when bubbles appear on the top.
  8. Serve warm with syrup or fruit topping!
