Buttermilk Pancakes

"Light and delicious and easy to make. Several neighbor girls used to stop by early on their way to school to eat these pancakes. I like maple syrup, but you can cook with chocolate chips or top with fresh or frozen fruit. Since there is no sugar in the pancakes, you can put chutney on them for a spicy taste."

    I can't say enough good things about these pancakes. I have tried many a pancake recipe and am usually pleased with the results, but this is the one I will use from now on. The pancakes have a little thickness to them and rise nicely, but still retain an incredible lightness. The sugar is not missed at all. This recipe takes seconds to put together, although I generally like my batter to rest for a few minutes before cooking. I have made this recipe 3 times already and, each time, I have yield 6 medium-size pancakes. From now on, I will make sure I always have buttermilk in the house, so I can make these on a moment's notice. Made for Spring PAC 2012.

    These are very light and tender. Very tasty, and the lack of sugar really does make them a good base for all sorts of toppings. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 44

    Really nice pancakes. Very fluffy and light. I did have to make my buttermilk by mixing some vinegar into milk, but otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks for a yummy breakfast!

    I made these as mini pancakes and spread with a little butter and put a little golden syrup and cream on them for our morning tea on a recent 4 wheel drive outing and we thoroughly enjoyed our sweet treat, even had enough to pass around to other members. Thank you sofie-a-toast, made for Everyday A Holiday.

    Very, very nice pancakes, & although I had pure maple syrup on the table, for some reason or other, I usually prefer white Karo syrup on my pancakes! Simple & easy to make this satisfying breakfast! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed as a THANK YOU for playing in Please Review My Recipe during the current tour]
