I know, I know. I make pancakes alot. Has anyone seen the movie, Stranger than Fiction where an accountant finds that his life is being narrated because he is a character in someone's book and he is going to die at the end of it. And the advice given to him (by Dustin Hoffman) is since his impending death is out of his control he should go have an adventure or just eat pancakes for the rest of his life.
So it's not just me who thinks about eating pancakes all the time. So there. I'm normal.
I think buttermilk pancakes are the perfect combination of creaminess and a little hint of tartness that works just right in pancakes. Perfect. And if you bake much you probably are like me and end up with a little left over buttermilk that is on the verge of expiring before you can use it. Don't be a food waster-make pancakes.
Adapted from Martha Stewart's Best Buttermilk Pancakes.
Ingredients: 1 cup flour, 3/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, 1 egg, a pinch of salt, 1 1/2 cups buttermilk and butter or oil for cooking.
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking soda, sugar and salt. Then add the egg and buttermilk and mix until just combined (still a few little lumps). If you over mix your batter your pancakes will not be as fluffy. I know, I've had many unfluffy pancakes. Unfluffy is not a word. In a heated skillet with a few tablespoon of butter or oil pour 1/3 cup of batter at a time. Once pancakes start to bubble a little flip that baby over. This makes about 8 pancakes.
