These are the BEST pancakes I have ever made. They are so fluffy and taste just like the ones you get from a restaurant for breakfast. They taste best with ice-cream and maple syrup. If you don't have vegetable oil, canola oil is fine, but make sure to NOT use olive oil. as it gives a horrible flavour. Also if you dont have buttermilk, use normal milk with a few teaspoons of vinegar or lemon juice. My trick to making the pancakes thick and fluffy is to not spread out the batter once it is in the pan, otherwise they turn out rubbery.
