Buttermilk pancakes

One of the fun things to do for breakfast is to make pancakes.  If you have buttermilk you need to use up, these pancakes work well.  I usually mix the dry ingredients the night before and put the butter in the microwave all ready and set to go to be melted the next day.  I am NOT a morning person! In bleary-eyed confusion, if I don’t get organized when I am wide awake, I may leave some ingredient out!


  1. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 2 tablespoons sugar
  3. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  4. ¼ teaspoon salt
  5. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  6. 1 egg
  7. 1 cup buttermilk*
  8.     *substitute 1 tlbs. Vinegar & 1 cup milk


Set a griddle on the stove at medium heat. Allow to heat for 10 minutes. Turn heat up slightly before cooking pancakes.

  1. Mix dry ingredients (you can do this the night before) in a bowl or in a 2 quart measuring cup.
  2. Add next 3 ingredients and beat until just blended.
  3. Spoon ¼ cup batter onto griddle.
  4. Cook until bubbles form on surface (2 to 3 minutes) and turn.
  5. Continue to cook for 1-2 minutes.
