READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by truebrit

These are lighter and fluffier than regular pancakes. I've tried other pancake recipes, but this has been a favorite in our home for years!

Very much enjoyed these. I think buttermilk adds a wonderful richness to many foods and this recipe only added to that belief. Very good!!
