Buttermilk pancakes

Everyone loves pancakes with maple syrup! I always make heaps on the weekend and then freeze the rest for easy re-heating in the microwave. I use a simple recipe with simple ratios:
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 Tb melted butter
1 Tb sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla extract (optional; I think pancakes taste that bit more like a cake with vanilla)

Using a mixer, beat the egg and sugar until well blended, then add salt and baking powder. Add in buttermilk, mix briefly, then add butter and vanilla (optional). Add flour and either fold in by hand or use the lowest setting on the mixer to only just mixed in (the pancakes will be lighter and fluffier if the batter isn’t over-mixed). Fry in a pan on medium-low heat with a bit of oil, pouring a small amount of batter into the pan, then flipping the pancakes when a few bubbles appear in the middle of each pancake. Top with butter and maple syrup!

  1. Having pancakes (or waffles) in the freezer is a comforting feeling, that’s for sure!

  2. P.S. Is that melting mass on top of the pancakes BUTTER?

    Yes, butter and maple syrup go SO well together. I did add an extra large mass of butter for the photo!

    WOW!!! The recipe certainly looks great!! I love buttermilk in cakes, or??? I like it so much better than sour cream. When a recipe calls for sour cream, I always add buttermilk instead.
