Sunday Buttermilk Pancakes

Sunday mornings are one of my favorite parts of the weekend.
And there's no better way to enjoy an Sunday morning than having a yummy breakfast on our balcony.

A few weeks back I made some biscuits and had some leftover buttermilk in our fridge.
And I hate letting things go to waste.
So I did my obligatory google search, and found this recipe from Joy of Baking.
The Joy of Baking is one of my go-to sites for baking recipes -
They have an extensive list of recipes which always turn out beautifully,
and this was no exception.

These pancakes are super easy to make and came out so fluffy.
SO much better than boxed mixes, and only a few more steps.
I highly recommend these if you have some buttermilk.
And if you don't, you can make your own by putting 1 Tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice in a measuring cup and adding enough milk to equal 1 cup.
You learn something new every day, right?!

Buttermilk Pancakes
from Joy of Baking

1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons white sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
extra butter for greasing the pan

Heat oven to 200 to keep pancakes warm.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg, buttermilk, and melted butter.

Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.  Pour in the egg mixture and stir until just combined.  Don't overmix - the batter will have some small lumps.

Heat a frying pan or griddle over med high heat.  A few sprinkles of water should sizzle when the pan is ready.  Lightly butter or oil the pan.  Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan.  When the bottom of the pancake is brown and the top is covered with bubbles, flip the pancake over.  Repeat with remaining batter.  Keep the finished pancakes warm in the oven.

Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!

Cheeto always hopes to catch some extra pieces, but he was out of luck this time!
