Lets get started!

Yield: 10-12 pcs
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20-22 minutes

Dry Ingredients
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of all purpose flour / Maida 
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar (you can add a little more for more sweeter preference)
  • Pinch of salt  

Wet Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup oil (any flavor less)
  • 3/4 cup milk ( any ) + 1 tbsp vinegar 
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence


  1. You can use more sugar for sweeter preference.
  2. Do not overmix the batter. Use cut and fold method.
  3. Make sure the oven is preheated before you mix the dry and wet ingredients.
  4. If you do not have vinegar, use buttermilk.
  5. Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature.
  6. To make it vegan, substitute milk or buttermilk with any vegan option, and equal quantity of oil instead of the butter.


1. Preheat the oven at 350 F / 180 C.

2. In a cup take room temperature milk and add 1 tbsp of vinegar to it. Mix well and keep aside.

 Milk will curdle after adding vinegar. ( This is what we want ).

3.  Sieve together all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

4.  Give it a mix.

5.  In another bowl, mix together, butter, oil and sugar.

6. Mix it well till creamy.

7. Add vanilla essence and milk-vinegar mixture.

8. Mix well.

9. Gradually add the prepared dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Use cut and fold method to mix. 
Do not over mix.. otherwise the texture would be dense!!

10. Pour in prelined cupcake pan, filling in 1/2 to 3/4 in each. Bake at preheated 350 F /180 C for 20-25 minutes or till toothpick comes out clear.

Mine were done in 20 minutes.

11. After baked, cool them completely before frosting.

I used to eat cupcakes when I was a child. But the day I tried the pancakes, they are my favorite dessert. My favorite one is the apple pancake. They also add some nutritional value to it by adding some fruits and nuts. When my mother make pancakes for me she used to add many fruits and vegetables to make it more healthy. The last time I went to Martabak Manis Singapore , I had very delicious and unique pancakes ever. I will definitely try the recipe shared by you. Thank you for sharing such a tasty recipe.
