A PANCAKE REVIEW.....

Hello, Pancake Lovers...

I feel terrible to say that this is one Pioneer Woman recipe that I won't try again.
"I'm sorry, Ree..."

I liked the taste ok...
but the texture wasn't up to par for me.
I think a whole cup of yogurt and only 7 T. flour
didn't do it for me...
HOWEVER.... that's just me....
others might love them so please don't hesitate to give them a try.

At times, I use boxed pancake mix which I sometimes
add sour cream or yogurt...



I've tried many, MANY recipes for pancakes...
the following is, BY FAR, my very favorite.


 I hope, on a morning that you have time to make your own batter,
that you will give these a try.


 Use REAL buttermilk..! ! !

Yes, I know you can make your "buttermilk" using regular milk
and adding vinegar or lemon juice....I've done it a million times....
but I PROMISE YOU.....
it doesn't come even CLOSE to thick, rich, buttermilk. 

So, pick up a quart of buttermilk before you make these
and you won't be disappointed. 

I just came from the grocery store and I bought a quart of 
buttermilk so you don't have to wonder what we'll have for 
breakfast in the morning....
BUT..
I promise not to post about them !


 This is the lightest, fluffiest, best tasting pancake recipe
I've ever found.
Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups well shaken buttermilk (you may need a little more if you want a thinner batter)...NOTE:..I didn't add one bit more than the 2 cups...try it this way FIRST..your batter will be thick...but...will make the BEST little pancakes.
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil (I used canola)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla... 
  •               NOTE...this was not in the original recipe but I ALways add it.
Instructions
  1. Mix dry ingredients together in medium bowl.
  2. Add all wet ingredients (eggs, buttermilk, and oil) to a separate bowl and stir just until blended.
  3. Add the wet ingredient to the dry ingredients just until combined. Do not over mix, batter will be slightly lumpy. *NOTE..overmixing will cause tough pancakes
  4. Lightly coat skillet with oil. Heat to medium low (I do one notch below medium).
  5. Drop ¼ cup of batter onto heated skillet. Use the back side of a spoon to help even out the batter.
  6. Cook on first side until bubbles begin to form on surface and underside is golden, about 2 minutes.
  7. Flip over and cook another 2 minutes until golden brown and center springs back when lightly touched.
Serve warm with maple syrup and butter. Makes 10-12 pancakes. 

If you follow the recipe exactly, you will have some
MIGHTY FINE PANCAKES.... 
 **************************************************
OK....I'm done with pancakes for awhile..
wait...
I mean I'm thru POSTING about them 
but I sure am not done with EATING them...:>) 
and
I surely wouldn't mind you sharing YOUR pancake recipes for me to try.

  4. My husband's fondest dream would be to eat pancakes three meals a day. Hmmmph. I have saved this recipe and will make it for him to "woo" him into a flower purchase?!

  5. BJ, I just had to laugh at JMD comments. Love it. Those pancakes you are showing us make me want some and I am not a pancake eater. I do love waffles though. You know how you are saying to use real buttermilk....well that's how I feel about making pie crust with Crisco.LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  6. YUMYUMYUM - they look wonderful and i sure would like some for dinner. But no buttermilk. Sometimes buttermilk is hard to find out here. but if your from VA you use buttermilk for a lit of recipes. I love just a cold glass on a hot summer day.

  9. Yup, you've sold me. I will actually purchase the buttermilk and give these a whirl. I am a little surprised that you don't want me to add a bit more liquid as you do for biscuits. John is holding onto a little jug of maple syrup that his daughter and son-in-law made from the sap from their own sugar maples. I'm sure that it will be very special. So I must do something really good to support that effort and I have found it!

  20. Your recipe sounds very close to mine, BJ, and they never fail! I may have to make pancakes for dinner!

  21. I have been following along on your pancake journey, bj. I'll skip PW's and try yours just as soon as I get to the store and buy some buttermilk. I normally use that powdered buttermilk, but I'm sure that wouldn't be as good. Btw, your pictures are making my mouth water! As soon as these A/C guys leave, I'm heading to the store...❤️

  22. I make pancakes seldom but when I do, I am using your recipe . . .
    THANK YOU

  23. The instant packages are nice for people like me, but nothing takes the place of a homemade pancake or anything else. Wish i lived nearby and come lick the bowls.

  25. Those pancakes look sooo good, BJ. I would love to Pin the recipe but I am a little paranoid after reading a post by a fellow blogger earlier this evening about pinning the pictures/posts of others.

  26. Oh my, yummy, yummy! Your recipe is much like mine only I don't use the buttermilk. I will definitely make them with buttermilk next time to see how much better they are. I'm trusting you! We love pancakes here at my house and with my whole family coming home in July, I will be making these. Thanks for sharing.

    Blessings,

  31. Hi Bj~ I had to come back and let you know that I made your pancakes this evening for our dinner and my husband and I are sold on these.
    I have a great recipe out of the Red Rose flour cook book from Canada that I love and use, but these will take precedence over that recipe.
    Wonderful, and thank you for sharing!

  33. I have never made homemade pancakes. I'm thinking you are going to get me try this one. The pictures of these thick pancakes are amazing. Drooling.

    The one thing I learned about buttermilk is the left over milk can be frozen in ice cube trays.

    I like that since most times I don't use it all and can't stand that I have to throw it away.

    Thanks, pinning

  34. Hi BJ,
    I am so glad I opened your post this afternoon. I have my granddaughter staying with us since the new little one is still in the hospital and has not come home yet. My granddaughter said to me when I asked her what she would like for dinner she said pancakes! Yep pancakes and homemade one's like daddy makes. So I am going to make these for her tonight. Funny how things come to you when you need them. Thank you sweet friend for the recipe.
