This recipe evolved from the simple fact that I was getting tired of wanting pancakes during the work week yet not having enough time to flip a dozen plus pancakes.
Taking only about 15 minutes from mixing to eating, these fluffy and easy pancakes can be eaten any day of the week. Depending on how you make them, they will give you three average sized pancakes or one ridiculous pancake.
As always, get started with putting on a record. I suggest the latest offering from Enforcer. “From Beyond” is an instant classic with its catchy melodies, awesome riffs, and cool artwork. These pancakes may not be from beyond, but they will take your tastebuds places. Listen to the title track here.
What you will need:
1/2 cup Buttermilk
1 tbs Melted Unsalted Butter
1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
One large bowl
One medium bowl
Prepare a pan on the stovetop. Be sure to grease it lightly with either butter or oil. Have your heat set at about just shy of medium (my stove top gauge was at 4 out 10).
Prepare the wet mix in the medium bowl. Whisk together until the ingredients are well mixed and a nice even color.
Next, clean your whisk off and mix together all of the dry ingredients in the large bowl. Once done, pour the wet mix into the dry mix and combine. Do no whisk for very long, just enough to get all of the dry mix from the sides of the bowl, for if you over mix, your pancakes will not be fluffy.
Once all ingredients are combined, dollop them onto your pan. Check their bottoms for an even brown color (usually after 4 or 5 minutes). Flip and cook for a few minutes more.
These can be enjoyed with or without toppings. I prefer without to savor the sweetness of the buttermilk, but you can do what you want. If you DO want to share these, just double the recipe.
