Buttermilk Pancakes


There is no better way to start a long weekend, then with some homemade buttermilk pancakes. On top of that, for Christmas my parents got me a smile face pancake skillet. Together they make a deadly duo, even at 7:00 in the morning.

History Behind the Tart
Originally, buttermilk was the left over fluids after churning the butter. It gets the tart taste from the lactic acid in the milk.  In 1902 they started to culture buttermilk. On these labels it said Artificial Buttermilk and on the labels of the traditional buttermilk it read Original Buttermilk.

Lets get Cookin’


2 c. flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
2 large eggs lightly beaten
3 c. buttermilk
4 tbsp butter, melted plus ½ tsp for griddle

1.) Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl.

2) Lightly beat egg.

3.) Add eggs, buttermilk, and 4 tablespoons butter

What would I do different…
I would start at a lower temperature so the middle gets cooked all the way.
