Buttermilk Pancakes

There is just something down-home-good
about buttermilk pancakes, don't you think?
And, a stack of them?  Hot off the griddle?
So much the better.

This is one of those recipes that I copied from
my Mom's recipe box when I was still in my teens.
It's a classic.  Want to know the recipe?
Of course, I will share...you knew I would, didn't you?  :)

~ Buttermilk Pancakes ~
(From my Mom's recipe box long, long ago)

2 cups Flour

1 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
2 Tbsp Sugar 
2 Large Eggs
2 cups Buttermilk (full fat)
2 Tbsp Butter, melted

Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Combine eggs, buttermilk and butter in another bowl ~ whisk together.
Add wet ingredients to dry and stir to moisten with your whisk ~ 
don't worry about really little lumps.

Heat frying pan to 375-400 degrees ~ 
when it's hot enough a little water dropped on the
pan will dance and evaporate.

Melt a little butter in the pan and swirl around.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the pan.
Cook until small bubbles form and pop ~ see photo above.
Flip to cook the other side ~ they are done when they are golden in colour.

Serve hot with butter and maple syrup ~ YUM!
This recipe makes 16 four inch pancakes.
In our opinion, they are better than any pancake mix around.
I'm sure you'll love 'em just like we do.  :)

Blessings to you,

Yea! I thought I was the only one who still used a frying pan to cook pancakes. I always see pics of others using an electric skillet. That just helps me confirm I do not need to buy one. Thanks!!

Awesome! I'll try them when my granddaughter comes to visit. She's my 'flapjack' queen.

Little Sis ~ I must confess that mine is an electric skillet...I've had this one for about 10 years and prior to it, had others. I do find them to be a great kitchen tool. However, if you've always been happy with your method...don't change! :)

Patrina ~ I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. I am just about to make up a batch for my family right now. :)

Blessings to you both!
