IHOP’s Buttermilk Pancakes adapted from Copykat.com
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups buttermilk + 1/4 cup for batter thinning

Add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda to a bowl. Whisk together to combine evenly. In the center of the mix add oil, egg and 1 1/2 cups buttermilk. Whisk together until batter is smooth and flour is mixed in with a few lumps remaining.

Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Turn the heat down just slightly to medium. Spray with oil.
Scoop pancake batter into the pan in 1/4-cup amounts. When the pancakes start to bubble on top, flip and cook for a few minutes until bottom side is lightly brown. If the batter is too thick, add additional buttermilk to thin slightly.

Makes 10 pancakes.
