Tell me… do you prefer pancakes or waffles? I’m more of a waffles kinda gal, but without a waffle maker, I’ll have to settle for pancakes. I’ve made pancakes from scratch once in my life before this batch. Can you believe it? Hey, I warned you guys I was a rookie with the stovetop. I wasn’t kidding.
Notice anything different from these photos? Yup, I’ve started adding a watermark. A total bummer in my opinion.. it definitely wasn’t something I wanted to do. I was browsing Pinterest earlier and noticed one of the pictures from my blog. I clicked on the link and was taken to a blog for “healthy recipes” with my food picture, but a completely different recipe attached. First of all, my recipes are definitely not the healthiest. I even have a recipe that uses 3 sticks of butter! Second of all, to use one of my pictures and link a completely different recipe to it? Not cool. Not to mention that there was no credit.. I guess there’s only so much you can control with the internet now and days.
/End rant. These pancakes were soooo fluffy (Despicable Me, anyone?)! I used whole wheat flour and do admit that it gave them a different flavor and texture. They tasted healthier. Who knew that pancakes could taste healthy? My DB ate 6 pancakes over a span of three days. Refrigerate them after they’re cooked and microwave them for a minute and a half the next morning. This recipe comes from AllRecipes. Feel free to add a handful of chocolate chips or blueberries to jazz them up!
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- cooking spray
- Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
- In a separate bowl, whisk egg and butter into the buttermilk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Carefully flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
