- 1 cup all-purpose flour (or gluten-free flour for GF option)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk (or plant-based milk for vegan option)
- 1 tablespoon vinegar (to create buttermilk)
- 1 large egg (or flax egg for vegan option)
- 2 tablespoons melted butter (or coconut oil for vegan option)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Fresh strawberries, sliced
- Fresh blueberries
- Maple syrup, for serving


1. Preheat your wood-fired oven to around 375°F (190°C).

2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3. In a separate bowl, combine the milk and vinegar, and let it sit for a few minutes to create buttermilk.

4. Add the egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract to the buttermilk mixture, and whisk until well combined.

5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.

6. Lightly grease a cast iron skillet or griddle with butter or oil.

7. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake.

8. Scatter sliced strawberries and blueberries over the surface of each pancake.

9. Place the skillet in the preheated wood-fired oven and cook for about 5-6 minutes, or until the pancakes are golden brown and cooked through.

10. Once cooked, remove the skillet from the oven and transfer the pancakes to a serving plate.

11. Serve the wood-fired pancakes hot, with a drizzle of maple syrup over the top and extra fresh berries for garnish if desired.

Duration to Cook: Approximately 5-6 minutes.
