Including buttermilk in your pancakes takes your average pancake to the next level. Like restaurant quality- incredibly flavorful, ridiculously fluffy and tender. Yum!! These are the best pancakes I have ever made! If you havent tried buttermilk in your pancakes yet, you really should get on that! These are super delicious and I make them way more often than I probably should because they are not exactly healthy, more of a special occasion breakfast. Stay tuned for a healthy everyday pancake mix that you can feel good about giving to our family. But in the meantime, go ahead, indulge and enjoy!
(I have tried a few times to get a good picture of these. Yeah, apparently that's not gonna happen, so instead you get an "action" shot of them baking! I was tired of waiting for a good picture and just wanted to share the recipe.)
Buttermilk Pancakes (slightly adapted from SmittenKitchen)
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3 T. sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 1/2 cups buttermilk (the original recipe calls for 3 cups, but I like my pancakes thick, so adjust to your taste)
4 T. butter, melted and slightly cooled
*In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients.
*Combine the buttermilk, eggs and butter.
*Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients mixing just until incorporated, there will be a few lumps.
*Allow to sit while your griddle heats
*The batter spreads and grows surprisingly a lot as it cooks, so be careful not to make them too large, (using maybe a 1/4 cup of batter?)
*Cook until top bubbles and sides dry out a bit, flip and cook on other side til golden brown.
