Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes
Let me start today by sharing what happened last Friday. We had a surprise visit from our granddaughter Chey and our two handsome great-grandsons. Ulric is getting taller and just oozes with personality. He got to go out with Pappy and see the chickens, played with my cabinet knobs in the kitchen which are bears and mooses and then like all kids, had to open all my cabinets to see what he could get into…. Niklaus is also gaining in size and Gram and Pappy got to hold him and make him laugh his heart out. Both boys just warm our hearts and love the way Chey and Eric are raising them!
Now onto these lighter than air pancakes. I remember my mom making these when I was a kid and at sometime she decided it was easier to buy premixed pancakes that you just added liquid to. Although they were more convenient and still tasty, they just didn’t have the same appeal. As we love everything that we can make from scratch, I decided to go back to these as I have been making waffles from scratch for years now. Let me tell you, I forgot how light and fluffy they really were and I am now being threatened by Husband to never ever make any other kind again. I took three pancakes and asked myself, “What am I thinking?” only to take an empty plate to the kitchen sink. I also paired them up with our Syrup Infused Pork Balls that I posted back in September and to repeat myself, plate clean enough I could almost put it back in the cabinet, ha ha!!!!!
- 2 cups flour

- Combine the first 5 ingredients.
- Mix together the egg and buttermilk.
- Gradually add to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
- Mixing lightly, add the melted butter.
- Pour batter onto a hot, lightly greased pancake griddle in amounts to make the desired size pancake; I used about a ¼ of batter per cake.
- Turn when bubbles appear over the top of pancake and cook until the bottom is browned, being sure to only turn once while cooking.
- Serve with favorite syrup and lotsa butter and meat of your choice!
Hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day! Kenny and I enjoyed these for breakfast and then gorged ourselves with a big old fat juicy burger for dinner as he is taking me out this weekend to my favorite steak house!!!!! Enjoy……….
