Buttermilk Pancakes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ChelseaKate

I made these for a couple of my friends one night because I had some buttermilk to use from a cake I had made. They raved about these pancakes! They are light and tender and perfect for a pancake fix! You can also refrigerate or freeze leftover batter in an airtight container for another day.

I was searching for a simple buttermilk pancake recipe and found this one! Very tasty! I added a teaspoon of vanilla to the egg and buttermilk mixture. Served with sausages and syrup! Yummy!
