- All-purpose flour: This is the base of your pancake batter and will give your pancakes their structure.

- Salt: Just a pinch of salt will help enhance the flavors in your pancakes.
- Baking soda: This will help your pancakes rise even more and make them extra fluffy.
- Sugar: This will add a touch of sweetness to your pancakes. You can use white sugar, brown sugar, or coconut sugar.
- Milk: Any milk will work for this recipe, and will help make your pancakes moist and tender. We’ve used almond milk for a vegan version.
- Apple cider vinegar: This may seem like an odd ingredient, but it will react with the baking soda to create a light and fluffy texture.
- Vanilla extract: This will add a lovely flavor to your pancakes and make them taste even more delicious.
See the recipe card below for exact measurements, instructions, time, and speed.
Add the sugar, cider vinegar, vanilla extract, milk, and salt to your Thermomix mixing bowl, and mix. Then add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
Program the Thermomix to mix slowly, to incorporate all the ingredients.
Heat a skillet or a pan over low heat and grease with coconut oil. Once hot, pour a ladle of the batter into the pan and let it cook for about 30 seconds or when bubbles appear all over the pancake.
Flip it very gently and let it cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then plate. Repeat this process until you have used all the batter.
Serve your Thermomix pancakes with your favorite toppings!
You can heat your oven to a low temperature and put the pancakes there so they are not cold when serving.

- Apple cider vinegar: We highly suggest sticking with cider vinegar, but if you don’t have apple cider vinegar, you can use soft white vinegar or lemon juice instead.
