Buttermilk Pancakes

Buttermilk PancakesSaturday morning I woke up at 11:00 a.m., exactly 12 hours after I fell asleep. Yes, I slept 12 hours straight. And it was amazing. All that sleep put me in a wonderful mood, and I decided rather than have boring toast, that I would make pancakes for breakfast.

Problem was, I didn’t have any Bisquick. Determined to make still make pancakes, I searched the Internet and found a plethora of recipes. I chose this one, because really, how could a recipe with five stars and more than 2,500 reviews be bad? And it wasn’t. It was delicious! These pancakes are light, fluffy, and oh so yum! Plus, they didn’t take much more time than pancakes from a box. The only change I made was the addition of vanilla, because my mom taught me to add vanilla to everything I bake.

Please ignore my oblong and funky shaped pancakes. I think the last one I poured ended up somewhat circular.

Photos of the process here.

3/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons butter, melted
cooking spray

Pour buttermilk into large bowl.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into buttermilk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.

    This looks pretty much like the recipe I use only with boys in the house, mine is double. I’m a huge fan of buttermilk for baking (the real thing, the lemon/milk combo doesn’t taste the same to me) and like you, I must have a splash of vanilla in mine. Yum! I’ve never made a round pancake in my life. Do they really turn out that way anywhere but restaurants?

    I always use Bisquick, and I’ve never tried a recipe to make them myself. You didn’t say if you liked them. Did you?

    I think my favorite pancake recipe is still this one: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Whole-Wheat-Oatmeal-Pancakes-241530
    I can see how yours would be nice and fluffy. I’ll have to try them next time I’m making pancakes!
