Buttermilk Pancakes

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by chefboy

This is a tasty and unusual buttermilk pancake. They are very thin and light because they use only half the usual amount of flour and have no baking powder or sugar. I started making these for my husband who has to cut back on his intake of flour. They are equally good using wheat flour too. They have a most unusual texture, almost a cool sensation in your mouth even though they are right out of the pan. I got the idea from a show I saw on television years ago.

I did add a little more buttermilk as I found the mix to thick and hard to handle but after my first 2 disasters I ended up with 12 good size pancakes which we enjoyed with recipe #399375, thank you chefboy, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
