This is a modification of the pancake recipe on the back of the Saco powdered buttermilk container. You can find Saco powdered buttermilk in the baking section of the grocery store; it's GREAT for baking and unlike fresh buttermilk you can measure just the amount you need and store the tub in the fridge indefinitely. I tried the Saco pancake recipe the first time about ten years ago and have never bought pancake mix again... this is just so superior to that Bisquick junk. This weekend I wondered how it would be to do half white / half wheat flour... I would not have guessed this recipe could be improved but WOW these are good!
- Preheat your griddle. I get perfect results with my electric griddle set between 350 and 400 degrees.
- Mix all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
- Smash the banana roughly with a fork on a small plate then add to the dry ingredients.
- Add remaining wet ingredients and stir until just blended -- don't over-stir!
- I use a 1/4 measuring cup to pour the batter onto my griddle.
- Cook until bubbles forming on the top surface stay open when they pop, then flip and cook until bottom is lightly browned.
- These are perfect with just a little syrup, but they're INSANE garnished with whipped cream and sliced strawberries.
I couldn't find dry buttermilk so I did like you suggested in another recipe. I used 4 tablespoon of all purpose flour. And for the 1 cup of water, I used instead 1 cup milk plus 1 tablespoon vinegar to have buttermilk. At the end I added a little bit more milk. They were very tasty. I loved the taste. And the texture great. I couldn't detect the taste of wheat flour. Thanks lolsuz :) Made for PAC Spring 2010 http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
