The day I don't have to feel guilty for feeding my family pancakes for dinner! Yay! Last year I think I made America's Test Kitchen pancakes which are pretty good, but I had forgotten about my pancake recipe (its even better!). I can't even remember where I got this recipe, but they are awesome! Kara is the one who reminded me how good they were. So, in honor of National Pancake Day, I thought I'd post the recipe on the ole blog for posterity (and the rest of you!).
Blueberry (or not) Buttermilk Pancakes
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup blueberries (optional)
So, the original recipe calls for mixing wet and dry separately and then combining them. The problem with that, two bowls to clean! So, this is my cheat and it works for all kinds of things.
Melt butter in your big bowl in the microwave. Add in sugar, salt, baking powder, soda, and eggs. Wisk that up real good. Then slowly pour in buttermilk, wisking as you pour. Now, put your wisk in the sink and get out a rubber spatula. Put in your two cups of flour and fold/stir until combined (don't stir too much though!). Now, just cook like you do pancakes, putting in blueberries/chocolate chips/whatever you like right after your pour the batter on the griddle.
You can thank me later!
