Buttermilk Pancakes

Raine and Ransome just love pancakes but I have never been too crazy for them. Maybe it is because I had to eat them with sugar-free syrup while growing up, YUK! These pancakes are very good though and I think it is the buttermilk in the recipe that makes all of the difference. I can actually enjoy these pancakes, with real maple syrup that is. This What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.

3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 T baking powder
2 t baking soda
2 T sugar
1 t salt
4 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
3/4 stick butter-melted
Blueberries, blackberries, bananas, walnuts, strawberries, or fruit/nut of your choice.

Mix dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients and stir well. Batter will have a few lumps in it. Don't over mix. Heat a cast iron griddle over medium heat. When heated add 2 T butter, now pour 1/2 cup of batter on to the griddle. When bubbles form and edges begin to grow, flip for plain pancakes or add fruit of your choice. I love blackberries on mine. Serve with syrup and butter.
