Buttermilk pancakes

Buttermilk Pancakes


We like to add slices of banana and walnuts, chocolate chips or strawberries into the pancake as it cooks... Very good, fluffy pancake!
Also another tasty additive: cinnamon, nutmeg & ginger... or pumpkin pie spice to the batter... YUM!

We ate all the evidence...no picture! Sorry about that!


3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons white sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup milk
3 eggs
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.

Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, using a fork to blend. Stir until just blended together. Do not over stir! Scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/2 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
