These fluffy pancakes will make you flip!

America's Test Kitchen on

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Vegetable oil spray

1/2 cup blueberries

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk milk, egg, oil and vanilla until well combined.

2. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir gently with a rubber spatula until just combined (batter should remain lumpy). Let the batter sit for 10 minutes before cooking.


3. Spray a 12-inch nonstick skillet with vegetable oil spray and heat over medium heat until hot, about 1 minute.

4. Using a 1/4-cup dry measuring cup, portion batter into the pan in three places. Sprinkle each pancake with 1 tablespoon of blueberries. Cook until the bubbles on the surface begin to pop, 2 to 3 minutes.

5. Use a spatula to flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the pancakes to a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter in two more batches. Turn off the heat. Serve.
