Buttermilk Pancakes for National Pancake Day


Did you know that March 1 is National Pancake Day? Like you need a reason to stuff your mouth full of warm, fluffy, maple-syrup-covered goodness, right? What better way to pay tribute to the pancake than by making the classic buttermilk variety, stacked high on the plate, slathered in butter and drenched in maple syrup? Enjoy!

Basic Buttermilk Pancakes
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In a separate container, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, vanilla and melted butter. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry just until mixed. Some lumps may remain.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is hot, coat with cooking spray or add a small pad of butter to grease. Pour ¼ cup batter onto the skillet. Allow to cook until bubbles are covering the surface. Flip and cook another 1-2 minutes on the second side until golden brown.
