buttermilk pancakes


Ok, this is a staple in our house.

My husband, he's in charge of breakfasts usually and this is a weekly must in our house.


And not just any pancakes, but buttermilk pancakes. I don't think I could ever eat just plain pancakes. They gotta be buttermilk pancakes. We always have buttermilk on hand for it in the refrigerator.

This recipe is great basic one. I usually make a bulk amount of dry mix and put it into a 4 Litre ice cream pail bucket. Makes saturday pancakes a lot easier. No major mixing! (I've added the bulk recipe amount too).

The week before we threw in some frozen blueberries into the batch and they turned out well. My kids love it when we put in chocolate chips but I try not to do that too often... then they expect it all the time!

I love my pancakes with just some butter and maple syrup. How about you?
