For the Love of Pancakes

December 9, 2010

Pancakes are a ritual in our home.   As a child, my mother would spoil me with stacks upon stacks of pancakes any day of the week I wished.  (Thanks Mom!) Now with my own kids, I’m compelled to continue the tradition though the pressures of a busy life generally restrict them to the weekend.  Our weekend is not complete without a heaping plate of steaming cakes smothered in homemade jam or syrup.

Many trials led me to develop this fabulous recipe.  It is truly simple and quick to put together.  You will not need to resort  mediocre mix ever again!  The batter produces pancakes which are thick and fluffy, but not heavy.  Add blueberries or bananas and you have a force to be reckoned with.  Feel free to replace 1/2 of the flour with whole wheat flour. If you do not have buttermilk on hand, combine 2 cups milk with 1 tablespoon  lemon juice or vinegar and let it sit for 10 minutes.
