Recipe by invictus
From the Gourmet International Pancakes and Waffles Cookbook circa 1970. My mom gave me this book when I first moved out on my own. I just recently tried the buttermilk pancake recipe and I can say that we haven't used another pancake recipe since. Light, fluffy, and absolutely delicious. Before this my family preferred a box mix (yuck!) so I am so glad I found this very simple recipe. This feeds my VERY hungry family of 3 sufficiently so I would definitely double if you have a larger family.
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 1⁄2 cups buttermilk
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
Directions See How It's Made
- Place sifter into a medium sized bowl. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Combine the eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter in another bowl (I use a large liquid measure).
- Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk together until combined.
- For each pancake pour 1/3 cup batter (for a pretty large pancake) into a preheated skillet on medium heat that has been melted with butter or sprayed with non-stick spray. Once bubbles start to form and pop in the middle, flip the pancake and brown on the second side.
- Serve with your choice of topping. We like homemade syrup, or jam with sour cream and vanilla yogurt.
