The Best Buttermilk Pancakes!
You know, my dad had a restaurant when I was a kid. It was called Greg's Hamburger Heaven and he made the best pancakes ever! So now that he's no longer here to make them for me, I always feel like he's with me when I'm making them.
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon BP
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup low fat buttermilk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 large egg lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
Light your oven to low. Place a plate inside.
Combine the flour, sugar, BP, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Whisk together to mix.
Combine the buttermilk, oil, egg and vanilla in a small bow. Whisk to mix.
Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon. Do not overmix. The batter will be a little thick.
Grease a griddle with a little canola oil or butter and set it over medium heat on the stove. Once it's hot, spoon some batter and form your pancakes. Make sure you don't put too much because the batter will spread.
Give the pancakes a minute and when they make little bubbles on top, carefully flip them over. By the time you flip the last one the first one should be ready.
Remove the pancakes and place them on the warming dish in the oven. Repeat with the remaining batter.I usually make 8 pancakes from this recipe. Any leftovers, if there ever can be, can be kept in the refrigerator for a day or two and rewarmed in the toaster oven or the microwave.
Top with a dab of butter, your favorite fruit, nuts and syrup. Another thing we usually do is top them with a fried egg! Yum! Here's to you dad!
All you need is a cup of coffee and you're on your way to heaven.
