Here is a simple and easy to reproduce buttermilk pancake. The secret to great pancakes is not to over mix the batter and to let it stand for about 5 to 10 minutes before cooking. This is an excellent Buttermilk Pancake all on its own but it is great base for all types of pancakes like Blueberries, Bananas, Apples, Strawberry and Nuts, or what ever you like be creative. This recipe uses powdered Saco buttermilk, you could use regular buttermilk but you would halve to adjust the batter texture for the liquid buttermilk. I like using the powdered Saco buttermilk for two reasons, 1. It incorporates easily into the dry ingredients for an evenly buttermilk taste and 2. I do not use buttermilk that much in my cooking and the powdered Saco buttermilk keeps for a long time in the fridge so I only use what I need with out wasting the rest. You can find Saco buttermilk at your local grocery store.

I was so tired of the box mixes with no taste, then I found this awesome recipe. I specifically looked for recipe using SACO powdered buttermilk.I cut the recipe in half,since I was cooking for one.The 1/2 recipe turned out delish,and made 9 pancakes approximately 5" in diameter, which I will reheat and have,another meal. TERRIFIC TASTING! !

Directions See How It's Made
- Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
- Mix all the wet ingredients together.
- Combine the wet ingredients into the dry, but DO NOT over mix, it's OK for it to be lumpy and have some un-incorporated flour but not to much.
- Let it stand in the bowl while you heat up your griddle/nonstick pan to 350°F.
- lightly oil your griddle/nonstick pan, the oil should show signs of shimmering this is when you know its hot enough to pour the batter.
- Pour the batter on to the griddle/pan enough to create about a 5 to 6 inch circle do not make the center to thick.
- When the batter shows signs of bubbles around the center its about time to flip the pancake and cook the other side.
- Cook both sides to a golden brown and serve with your favorite topping.
