OLD FASHIONED BUTTERMILK PANCAKES

Some of you have asked for my pancake recipe... here it is!

This is a great recipe that I found in an old recipe book I picked up at an estate sale. Judging from the weathered look of the recipe card, this was a family favorite. At any given time, I add blueberries, bananas, apples mixed with cinnamon, or chocolate chips to this pancake batter, blueberry being my favorite.

However, this pancake recipe stands on its own with no need for any additions, if you should so choose. I guarantee you, this is the LAST pancake recipe you will ever use. They are incredibly easy to make, oh so fluffy and the recipe can be doubled or tripled... Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk; If you don't have buttermilk in your fridge, mix 3/4 cups milk and 2 tablespoons white vinegar together... allow it to become a bit frothy, maybe 5 minutes.
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup blueberries, chopped apples sprinkled with cinnamon, bananas, or chocolate chips, whatever sounds good to you


DIRECTIONS:
  1. In a large bowl, mix together the first 5 ingredients. Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk, egg and melted butter; mix slightly, there will be a few lumps.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. If you choose to add fruit do it now. Sprinkle with blueberries, cook until bubbles appear on the surface and the bottom is golden brown, flip and cook just until the center is cooked through. Serve hot.
