Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pancakes


Great tasting buttermilk pancakes




 Buttermilk is a leftover product
after churning milk into butter.
It is high in calcium, and B12,
 also low in fat.

Pancakes can be frozen and 
reheated  straight from the freezer, 
in the toaster or in the microwave.


 

Fruit can be cooked 
into the pancake mix, 
However, I prefer natural pancakes and 
 add my fruit on top after they are cooked.
 Also I add syrup or molasses on top.

It makes them easier to 
heat up in the toaster, if frozen 
and not have fruit such as 
blueberries in the toaster. 

A toaster oven works well
with pancakes cooked with fruit. 


Ingredients
(yields about 12 small pancakes.)

1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp. white sugar
1/4 tsp salt

1 3/4  cups buttermilk for
thick pancakes, or 
add 1/4 cup milk for
thiner pancakes. 

3 tbsp melted butter (or oil);
(I use vegetable oil.)
1 egg

Directions

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, 
baking soda, sugar and salt in a large bowl.

In another bowl, whisk together
 the buttermilk, butter (or oil) and egg.

Combine both bowls.
Do not overmix. 
Disregard lumps, they will go away.
Let the batter rest 10 minutes,
pancakes will be fluffier.


Heat a lightly oiled pan or 
griddle over medium-high heat.
I used a griddle at 350-375 deg.

If the mix has become too thick,
add more buttermilk.
Pour the pancake mix, about 1/4 cup
in the pan ( an ice cream scoop works well)
and heat until bubbles
appear on the surface of the pancake
and the edges are slightly dry.


Flip over and cook the other side, 
until browned, about 2 minutes.




If you are serving a lot of guests,
heat the oven to 200deg.F and as
 the pancakes cook, place them on a
cookie sheet in the oven,
to keep them warm.

don't stack them hot as
they get soggy. 
Before freezing, I let them cool,
on a rack, then stack and freeze.

To freeze, place waxed paper or
parchment paper between each
pancake or they will 
freeze in one clump.

These small square paper below,
 from the Dollarstore work
well between the pancakes for
 freezing. Frozen pancakes store
nicely in large margarine dishes,
or 2 litre ice cream dishes.
Take out as you need them
and place in toaster.

Old Fashioned Pancakes

 Im sharing a pancake recipe
that I have been making
 for many years with easy
basic ingredients. 

Pancakes can be frozen
and reheated, straight from
 the freezer, in the toaster
or in the microwave.

Fruit can be cooked
 into the pancake mix, 
However, I prefer natural pancakes 
and add my fruit on top after they
  are cooked also I add syrup or molasses.

It makes them easier to 
heat up in the toaster, if frozen 
and not have fruit such as 
blueberries in the toaster. 

A toaster oven works well
with pancakes cooked with fruit. 




Ingredients

(yields about 12 small pancakes)

1 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp. white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2cups milk 
3 tbsp melted butter (or oil);
(I use vegetable oil.)
1 egg

Directions

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, 
sugar and salt in a large bowl.

In another bowl, whisk together
 the milk, butter (or oil) and egg.

Before freezing, I let them cool,
on a rack, then stack and freeze.

To freeze, place waxed paper
or parchment paper between
each pancakes to prevent
them from freezing in one clump.
