  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients.
  5. Gently fold this mixture into the dry ingredients until flour disappears. Don’t over mix (batter will be thick).

Recipe Notes

Tip  – We like to add Calivirgin Lusty Lemon Olive Oil to grease the pan or griddle, it to make it easier to flip the pancakes.
