In a bowl, mix the milk and vinegar; let stand 2 minutes.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon. Add the eggs and vanilla to the milk mixture and beat with a whisk. Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients, and stir until well combined.

Preheat oven to 200 °F (100 °C).

In a large non-stick skillet, heat a bit of oil over medium heat and add batter to form pancakes roughly 3-inch (7.5 cm) in diameter. Cook until the surface is covered with bubbles, 2–3 minutes. Flip over and cook 2 more minutes. Reserve in warm oven, then cook more pancakes. If necessary, use more than one skillet to speed up cooking time.

In a small saucepan, mix the jam and water, bring to a boil and keep warm while cooking the pancakes.

Place two pancakes on a plate, sprinkle shredded Cheddar over them, and cover with two more pancakes to form sandwiches.

Garnish with the jam coulis and pecans.
