Basic Buttermilk Pancakes II
(12 servings) Printable Version
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. You can flick water across the surface and if it beads up and sizzles, it's ready!
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, using a wooden spoon or fork to blend. Stir until it's just blended together. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/2 cup for each pancake. Watch for air bubbles and then flip and brown. Serve hot.
Keep the wet and dry ingredients separate until just ready to fry. Do not over stir. Batter does not store well as if it sits, it will make thin pancakes instead of the beautiful, thick puffs that come out when the batter is fresh.
It makes about 12 to 15 pancakes.
(You can stack them on a pan in a warm oven (200-degrees) as you are making them so they aren't all eaten up before the chef has a chance to eat.)
This is the best plain 'ol pancake recipe I have ever found!

This is a VERY good recipe, so nice & fluffy, as well as extremely tasty. I've always used a tried-and-true recipe, somewhat similar this one. But, it was the suttle differances that made this one more superior.
Makes a LOT of cakes (I got about 19 7-8" pancakes with one batch) One thing I know for sure, they extras won't go to waste.

Trust me these are truly the best pancakes ever! It's definitely my family's favorite. Whenever we have pancakes these are the ones! :)
My mom even makes them with part or all whole wheat flour, SO GOOD!

If you seperate the egg whites, and whip them, then fold them into the mixture at the last minuite before cooking, pancakes will be fluffier.

Best American pancakes I've ever had. Excellent and functional recipe, translates perfectly into European kitchens, too.
