Martha Knows Pancakes

The kids love pancakes and I alternate between two recipes...I don't know why...but my son loves these and I like the others.   If I mention pancakes he'll always ask "Are you going to make the good ones?" and these are the ones he's referring too.  Funny how everyone has a preference.  Don't get me wrong, these taste light and fluffy and are a breeze to make.  I do like them...I like them even better the second day toasted in the toaster and then smeared with peanut butter and jelly to be exact.

Buttermilk Pancakes
adapted from
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 t salt
3 Tbsp sugar
2 eggs - beaten
3 cups buttermilk
4 Tbsp butter, melted

Heat the griddle on medium heat.  Whisk the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Add the eggs, buttermilk, and butter to dry ingredients.  Whisk to combine, do not over mix, lumps are fine.  Oil griddle, or melt a small pat of butter and then brush it around the griddle with a pastry brush to coat.  Pour pancake batter onto griddle with a 1/2 cup measuring cup (or eyeball it like I do) and cook until bubbles appear and edges are dry, 2-2/12 minutes and then flip.  Cook 1 additional minute.

If you like crisp edges use more oil or butter between each batch so there is enough to slightly fry the pancakes.
