Good morning, Kitschies!! It's another wonderful day in the neighborhood here at work. It's super busy and I'm pulling my hair out because I'm being pulled in too many directions and wearing too many hats. *sigh* It's nice to be wanted, but this is getting ridiculous!
Enough about that. Today I'm going to share an awesome pancake recipe with you. Ever since I got my new waffle iron/pancake griddle, I've been on a quest to find the perfect pancake recipe. I've tried Canadian Pancakes (they're good but they're kinda a pain in the butt), regular Bisquick pancakes and the Ultimate Melt-In-Your-Mouth pancakes off the Bisquick box. They're all good, but they're not great. This recipe, though, *is* great!
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp white sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
3 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together buttermilk, milk, eggs and melted butter. Keep the two mixtures separate until you are ready to cook.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. You can flick water across the surface and if it beads up and sizzles, it's ready!
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, using a wooden spoon or fork to blend. Stir until it's just blended together. Do not over stir! Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/2 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
These pancakes browned up perfectly! And they're fluffy, too. I had no issues whatsoever with these pancakes. That's the first time I've had great pancakes from the first batch to the last.
I don't usually have buttermilk on hand, but I needed it to make a cake for my co-worker (recipe to follow soon-ish). Of course I only needed a little bit but had to buy a whole quart. Now I might just be buying buttermilk on a more regular basis! Now I'm craving breakfast for dinner. Ugh!
