Buttermilk Pancakes for One

"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.

    Thanks for posting this! I substituted unsweetened applesause for the oil and used a 50-50 mixture of all-purpose and whole wheat flour, & they came out good. I also sliced up half of a small banana and added it in...thanks again! : )

    This is one off thoose recipe which you can make with eyes still 1/2 shut from sleep. Very quick and easy to put together. The pancakes were light and fluffy. I followed the recipe as is except i subed almond flour for wheatgerm and mild labaan (natural arabic drinking yogurt) for buttermilk we dont get buttermilk or wheatgerm here. I got 5 pancakes, 4,1/3 cup pancakes and 1 smaller 1. :)

    Even though this is a great concept, I wasn't particularly pleased with these pancakes, they were too thin and too "eggy" tasting. I might try this again but with some personal adjustments.

    After making these for the second and third time, I knew I needed to say how much I like it. It's perfect for using up the last bit of buttermilk in the fridge. Thanks!

    I made these pancakes this morning, with a few small adjustments. Instead of vegetable oil I used coconut oil and I replaced half the flour with whole wheat flour. I also used 1/4 c egg whites instead of an egg and added 1 tsp sugar. Overall I thought they were good, and extremely fluffy. I will definitely make again if I need a quick and easy recipe that can be made a bit healthier without substituting the taste!

    This was perfect for me! I used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose, and added a handful of sliced fresh strawberries. Just enough for 2 filling pancakes. Thanks!
