Melissa's Cuisine: Buttermilk Pancakes

Buttermilk Pancakes

By now, you are well aware of my love for breakfast foods.  Especially pancakes!  So it's no surprise, when browsing through Julie's Eats and Treats to find a recipe to make for this month's Secret Recipe Club, that I was drawn to her mom's recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes

Julie's blog features Simple, Easy but Delicious Food. I was drawn to a number of her recipes.  My "short list" included a whopping 13 recipes, but I had a major craving for pancakes so they ended up winning out.  I'm sure I'll be making more of her recipes in the future.

I like to make pancakes as an easy but delicious supper.  Served with an omelet and fruit, this made for a filling meal.  I added a cup of chocolate and peanut butter chips.  (I'm not a fan of syrup, so I put the sweetness in my pancakes.)  I think these would also be great with some blueberries or any other add-ins you choose.  I made a double batch of pancakes so I would be able to have pancakes for breakfast through out the week.  I've enjoyed these pancakes nearly every day last week, and I'll certainly make them again!

1.  Preheat and lightly grease an electric griddle.

2.  Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl.

  2. I am convinced the addition of buttermilk makes everything better. I am using it more and more. I like to top my pancakes with raspberry jam instead of syrup, I will have to tell my kids I'm not the only person in the world who doesn't have syrup on their pancakes :)

  5. They are just picture-perfect! I love that you put chocolate and peanut butter chips in them. Have you ever tried smearing pb on your pancake? I know some people that prefer that over any thing else and I quite like it too.
