Do you have a favorite breakfast in your house? Something that you don’t make very often but when you do everyone is happy? In our house we enjoy pancakes and waffles. We’ve tried wild rice pancakes and oatmeal pancakes. As my husband says it’s an excuse to enjoy real Maple Syrup! These Buttermilk Pancakes are an all time favorite in our family; I don’t think you can beat these. I don’t make them as often as I did when we had children under our roof but occasionally I will surprise my husband with his favorite breakfast.These pancakes are slightly sourish and light, easy to make and the batter holds well for several days in the refrigerator. It is very easy to double or triple this recipe if you are feeding a crowd! If you don’t double the recipe it is perfect for a Saturday breakfast for two.
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg, room temperature
3 Tbsp butter, melted
¾ cup flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
Put the buttermilk, egg and melted butter in a large bowl. Stir until the mixture is smooth and well blended. Add the flour, salt, and baking soda together in a small bowl so that they are well blended. Add the dry mixture to the buttermilk mixture. Stir together only until the dry ingredients are moistened, don’t worry about the lumps.
Heat a griddle to medium hot. Grease lightly and spoon about ¼ cup batter for each pancake. Cook until a few bubbles break on the top. Turn the pancake over and cook briefly. Keep pancakes warm in the oven until ready to serve. Serve with real maple syrup!Looks like a perfect Saturday breakfast to me! Buttermilk Pancakes and Canadian Bacon. What’s your favorite breakfast?
