There's little I enjoy more than a yummy, hot breakfast on the weekends with my family. This morning was one of those mornings. I decided to make pancakes for my family, given that I had a half-gallon of buttermilk in the fridge and the poor memory of my powdered buttermilk pancakes from a week or two ago still in my head. Yuck. But after today, all I can remember are super fluffy, yummy pancakes. Even Baby likes them!
They're really quite easy to make...but so far pancakes mixes like Bisquick and Aunt Jemima. The big difference, in my opinion, between a pancake mix and my pancakes is the flavor. Pancake mixes taste okay, but Type A Mommy's Famous Pancakes taste scrumptious. They really do. Don't believe me? Make tomorrow Brinner night, and enjoy some at your house. I just wish I could come make them for you.
Type A Mommy's Famous Pancakes
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups real buttermilk
4 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Beat eggs until frothy with a whisk or fork.
2. Add buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla. Blend well.
3. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Batter will be lumpy - this is OK. Do not overmix.
4. Heat griddle/fry pan to 350 degrees.
5. Pour 1/3 cup per pancake (or thereabouts) to hot griddle. Cook till bubbly and firm around the edges, then flip.
This recipe makes approximately 10-14 pancakes. These pancakes reheat well both in the microwave and toaster if you have leftovers.
P.S. - They taste really awesome with Karo pancake syrup (with the green label) - that is, if you like thick pancake syrup.
