Rod's Buttermilk Pancakes

In spite of the recipe name, somewhere along the way I became the pancake chef in our family. I'm sure it's because I wanted Rod to enjoy the hot pancakes rather than me being a control freak. Really. :)

1 and 1/4 cups flour

2 tsp. baking powder
1 and 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 egg
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

Mix all dry ingredients.

Combine egg, milk and oil. Add to dry ingredients until just moistened. Allow to sit for a couple of minutes.

Cook on hot griddle.

These are sooooo good! You'll never use Bisquick again!

Yield: 2 dozen


I spread about 1 Tbsp. of butter on the hot griddle, right before pouring the pancake batter on. It helps give the pancakes a crispy edge. I do this for each new batch of pancakes.

Hmmm...they look delicious. I've been wanting some real pancakes with sausage (hm...or maybe bacon) lately. I may have to add this to my menu soon!

They are! They are! We had them with bacon. Crispy, almost burnt, bacon. Yum. I'm making myself hungry!

Oh these look delicious! I haven't had pancakes for dinner since I was a little kid...time to change that. (I have a food blog too that I'll start posting more on come the new year.)

Oh yum!! Would go great with the maple syrup I brought back from Canada! Can you make them with regular milk as I really don't think I'd find buttermilk here? I usually end up making French Toast instead of pancakes since it's simpler, ingredient-wise.

Heather (Orange Blossom Goddess) - Oooh, another food blog! I'll have to come visit. :)

Nat - You have two options:

1 cup of buttermilk = 1 cup milk PLUS 1 Tbsp vinegar or lemon juice (let stand for 10 minutes before using in recipe)


1 cup of buttermilk = 1 cup milk PLUS 1-3/4 teaspoons cream of tartar

I'm not sure about just using milk. You could always try it, maybe starting with a smaller amount since buttermilk is a bit thicker. The batter is pretty thin, though. Not at all like Bisquick!

Mmmmmmm, I thought so much of you this morning, Les...I took the girls to a French breakfast place called "Chez Coras" and we had crepes. Next Sunday I'm going to try your pancake recipe!

Pass on to Rod that his pancake recipe was de-lish! We just finished eating them for supper tonight with sausage. YUM!

We eat breakfast-for-supper at least once a month, year round.

Lotus - Ooooh, I love crepes. Haven't made them in YEARS! I'll have to give them a whirl sometime this winter. Hope you enjoy Rod's pancakes next weekend. :)

Anita - I'll let Rod know you enjoyed them. You know, they're pretty good for leftovers the next morning (with peanut butter and jelly). Mmmm.
