Next, you add to it some sort of acid. Lemon juice or apple cider vinegar is what I use. Add a few drops for a small batch or up to a teaspoon for a larger batch of pancakes.
Now let the mix sit for a couple of minutes. Do not over mix pancake batter. The acid reacts with the baking soda or powder that is in the recipe and causes the mix to bubble a little bit. Now to counteract the sour you just added, add an equal amount of sugar if you'd like. That's what I do. Let the mix sit for a few minutes to get some good bubble action and then make as usual.
