Buttermilk Pancakes

 
There isn’t anything better for a special weekend breakfast than freshly cooked, fluffy, buttermilk pancakes with some bacon and eggs. So put away the premixed, can’t pronounce the ingredient list, over-priced, over-processed dust in a bag that people call “pancake mix”. These pancakes are simple, easy, fast, and economical to mix up, and they make pancakes that will rival any restaurant version you’ve ever had!

I love pancakes, especially buttermilk pancakes. I am VERY particular about what constitutes a good one. These freeze very well, so make a large batch and freeze between wax-paper sheets and then reheat in the microwave for a quick weekday breakfast! You can add blueberries, chocolate chips, or any number of add-ins to these. Begin by mixing together all the dry ingredients until they are well combined.

Now mix the wet ingredients in a bowl and whisk until the eggs are very well combined.

Continue cooking until all of the batter is done and serve with some hot maple syrup or your favorite berry syrup.

 *Note – DO NOT substitute homemade buttermilk (milk +lemon juice or vinegar) for the buttermilk in this recipe. It doesn’t work. At all. Homemade buttermilk is much thinner in consistency than real buttermilk, and it drastically affects the consistency of the batter. You’ve been warned!
