These are the "BEST" from scratch pancakes I have ever made or tasted. If you don't have buttermilk just add 1 tbsp of lemon juice or 1 tsp of baking soda to milk and you have no effect on the outcome. I like to make a pile of these and freeze them for the kids to pull out on those busy mornings getting ready for school. They freeze wonderfully.
The strawberry recipe swap has gotten me thinking STRAWBERRIES!!! We wanted pancakes this morning and these are what we had. We liked them with warmed puree on top and whipping cream. DD#3 was moaning she ate so many!
The chore of making French toast on a weekday morning is standing over the stove when you're short on time. By assembling breakfast the night before, then letting the French toast bake instead of fry, you've got more time to get organized for the new day.
