Buttermilk Pancakes . . . these soft and fluffy made from scratch pancakes are a wonderful way to start your morning.
I had a rather hectic day Wednesday, and by the time 5:00 rolled around, I was exhausted and had a headache. I was in no mood to make the meal I had planned for dinner. So I opted to make buttermilk pancakes.
My boys were thrilled because they love it when we have breakfast for dinner. My husband made scrambled eggs, and we had plenty of fruit to round out the meal.
I always make pancakes from scratch. I think my boys are growing up a little spoiled that way. (Sorry future wives.) As we were eating these, my oldest son asked, “Mom, how come your pancakes always way better than the ones at scout camp?” Love that kid!
I informed him that those pancakes are always made from pancake mix. And of course like most things, homemade is better than a mix any day. 🙂
This is the pancake recipe that I grew up with. It’s easy to make, and we love them. Just like my waffle recipe, the buttermilk is a key ingredient. Without it they just aren’t the same. You can make buttermilk with milk and lemon juice or vinegar, but the pancakes won’t be quite as tender and fluffy.
Do you ever serve breakfast for dinner at your house? I’m not the only one, right?
