Cracker Barrel Buttermilk Pancakes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by C. Taylor

Update: I have double checked the baking soda amount and it is indeed 2 tsp. Hope this helps avoid any confusion. *** I absolutely adore the pancakes served at Cracker Barrel, especially their pecan pancakes. This recipe comes from the Cracker Barrel Cookbook. In my experience, you need to make sure that your cooking surface is well greased or you get leathery pancakes.

Yes, this is the cracker barrel pancake recipe. I use 2-3 c. of buttermilk, some buttermilk is thicker than others. You want a fairly thin batter and a very hot pan. I use 475 on my griddle. The sugar and butter is key to the browning factor and taste. This aren't thick pancakes, enjoy
