Pancakes, pancakes pancakes!

I love pancakes. I think they are one of the best comfort foods around. However, what passes for pancakes around most tables is just sad. I have always said, why not make your own and people look at me like I’m crazy. For some reason, people think pancakes are hard to make, but that’s just not so.

Here is a recipe from one of my Southern moms and I can promise you if you whip up a batch of these on a Sunday morning with butter and maple syrup, you will be a hit. They are to die for, and this recipe makes a lot of pancakes. By the way, this makes good waffles too.

2 cups of AP Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
21/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
21/2 Tbsp Sugar
2 large Eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
2 Tbsp Butter, melted
2 cups of Buttermilk

Combine all of your dry ingredients and mix them with a whisk. Then gently add the remaining ingredients and just mix until it is blended. Do not over mix, or they will be tough.
Use a ladle and add about 1/4 – 1/3 cup of batter to a lightly greased preheated pan on medium high heat. When you see air bubbles on the side facing up and the edges look golden brown, then flip it and cook for another minute or so. You don’t need to flip again. Serve while hot with butter and maple syrup which has been slight warmed.
