MOM’S BUTTERMILK PANCAKES
These pancakes are passed down from my grandmother, who was fully Scandinavian. They are light and fluffy and great with berry syrups. I have made these for years as a special treat, and I hope you enjoy them as much as my family has.
The first time I made these I followed the directions exactly and they were OUTSTANDING; light and fluffy as air. The second time I made them I did not have any buttermilk in the house so I made some buttermilk using milk and vinegar. The second batch was good but nowhere near as good, or as light and fluffy as the first batch I made with the real buttermilk. I don’t know why they weren’t as fluffy but if I have any recommendations to make I would tell you to use the real buttermilk for the best results! Added fresh blueberries to the buttermilk batter and they were delicious that way as well! This is so very simple to mix together, that I will never use the packaged pancake mixes again. When I double this I double all the ingredients except for the salt. I just love making things from scratch for my family whenever I can and this is just as simple as a boxed mix, but much, much better!!!!! Update! I added a teaspoon of Vanilla Extract to the batter – took this recipe OVER THE TOP!
