Coleen's Recipes blog gives the whole recipe, but it didn't include many pictures, so I took it upon myself to take photos of most of the process, just in case anybody did want to see the steps in pictures.
She starts by souring milk by adding some vinegar to the milk. Basically, it's like making your own buttermilk, in a way.
Let it set for 10 minutes and here is the finished product of that with the rest of the wet ingredients mixed in as well. Obviously, it has yet to look tasty.
Next, mix all your dry ingredients and pour in your mixed liquids and let it set for another 10 minutes. In her blog, she says the batter will likely bubble and you should not stir it in spite of that! My batter really didn't bubble much - maybe it's because I used 1% milk?? I don't know, either way, you can see in these before and after pictures that there is literally, like, one bubble. But, really, as long as the bubbles aren't what make the pancakes, I guess we are ok.

But, what I can tell you - these really were pretty much just as good (as far as flavor) as the packages with the mixes. They took just a little longer, but it really wasn't too bad. 30 minutes, maybe?? And, they were very airy, fluffy and light and delicious. Mmmm...I love breakfast. Were these the best pancakes ever? I don't know if I'd say that. Maybe after my husband gives them a whirl I'll be able to say that. But, I can say there were certainly tasty!
If you try this recipe, I hope you enjoy these as much as my husband, son and I did. It definitely is worth a try.
