Pancakes are really easy to make from scratch! I usually always make whole wheat pancakes, but as I was out of whole wheat flour I made these with all-purpose flour. I had some buttermilk in the fridge, and I thought I'd put it up to good use ;-)
My favorite part of eating pancakes are the different toppings...It could be fruits, jam, honey, maple syrup, chocolate syrup...yumm!! Savory options are available too, but I haven't tried any yet, so more on that later.
We enjoyed these beauties with some banana slices, strawberries and Orange marmalade....of course I drizzled some honey too on top of mine...
My little guy happily had a whole pancake topped with honey!
Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe
Recipe source : AllRecipes.com
All purpose flour - 1 ½ cups
Baking powder - 3 ½ tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1 tblsp
Buttermilk - 1 ¼ cups
Butter - 3 tblsp (melted)
Egg - 1
Milk - 2 tblsp (optional)
Directions1. In a bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder , sugar and salt.
2. Make a well in the centre and add the buttermilk, melted butter and egg and mix well until the batter almost resembles cake batter. (If the batter is very thick, add 1 tblsp of milk at a time and loosen the batter)
4. Pour approx a ¼ cup of batter on to the pan and lightly tap it to spread it to around 4" diameter.
5. Brown slightly on both sides and serve hot with delicious toppings!!
I've tried this recipe several times and it has never failed me. Original recipe calls for Milk, I've substituted that with Buttermilk, still tastes great! So what are you gonna drizzle over your batch of pancakes? ;-)
