Buttermilk Pancakes for One

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by TGirl

I love pancakes. But making a whole batch isn't always convenient. Sure, I can make them all and freeze them for later, but sometimes, you just don't have time to stand over the stove for that long, when all you want is 2 or 3 pancakes for right now. Well, here's the answer! This recipe makes a total of 3 terrific buttermilk pancakes if you use a 1/3 cup measure.

Quite good, and very easy. I was able to make them with things I had in the house, with a little alteration. I didn't have wheat germ, so I left it out. I made a buttermilk substitute with nonfat powdered milk (mixed with water to make half a cup), plus 1/2 tsp vinegar. I also only had bread flour, but it worked fine. After mixing it together, the batter looked lumpy, but apparently that's the way it's supposed to look. The pancakes were pretty fluffy.
