Chef Notes

  • If buttermilk is unavailable, stir in a tablespoon (15 millilitres) of lemon juice or white vinegar into 1 cup (240 millilitres) of milk. Let stand for 5 minutes, and use as directed in the recipe.
  • When using fruits or berries as toppings for your pancake bites, make sure that they are sliced small enough to into the tin.
