Aunt Helen's Buttermilk Pancakes

Aunt Helen's Buttermilk Pancakes created by Lavender Lynn

Wonderful, light, tasty pancakes that are unlike any others. There are similar recipes but none taste like these! Aunt Helen always had a few special recipes for "ordinary" foods that were better than any other. We've misplaced the recipe often enough that it's time it goes on here, permanently located!

  • Add wet ingredients to dry alternately, a little at a time, working out the lumps. This batter should be smooth when its completed.
  • Heat pan or grill to med-high (400*) drop onto grill or pan in the desired size, turn over when bubbles appear on top, cook 'til done.
  • These are great to cook in large batches to freeze and then reheat. Lovely for cold school mornings. You could use half white flour and half whole wheat flour.

    So good! The distinct buttermilk flavor plays nicely with our traditional maple syrup and butter. We recommend keeping the pancakes small to avoid undercooked centers, a known issue with buttermilk pancakes, but the real key to that is a heavy pan at the right temperature. Light, pretty, and tasty! Made for PAC Spring 2013.

    Perfect pancakes. This is a great recipe if you always have buttermilk on hand, which I don't, I had to buy it LOL. But these are well worth going to the supermarket for the buttermilk. I topped them with strawberries that I mashed with a fork and added a little sugar to it. This feed 5 of us well, made for special breakfest for my Daugter and Grandson this morning as they left this afternoon to travel. Very good and I will make them again. Made for Fall PAC 09 Sorry no photo, camera was packed for Daughters trip.
