Melt-in-your-mouth Buttermilk Pancakes

If you have a lot of overnight guests over to your home, I think it’s important to have a good pancake recipe. After all, who doesn’t enjoy just-made pancakes on a weekend morning?!! I have a favorite family recipe that I’ve been using for many years. It’s posted below. It’s been a favorite of our family, and of our houseguests too!

Melt-in-your-mouth Buttermilk Pancakes

1 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
2 T. sugar
2 cups buttermilk
1 large egg
3 T. butter, melted

In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Add buttermilk, egg and butter and stir until batter is evenly mixed. Refrigerate until ready to make pancakes. Do-ahead tip: this recipe is excellent when mixed up the night before.

Top with fresh berries, whipped butter, maple syrup or honey. If desired, dust with powdered sugar before serving.

You can also add ½ to ¾ cup fresh or frozen blueberries to the batter (do this right before cooking on the griddle).

Happy pancake making!
