Homemade: Grandma's Pancakes

Sunday, September 9, 2012

I have a secret. A secret that I'm going to share today. Seven simple ingredients that warm hearts and make mouths happy. You all know pancakes are always a win. They sometimes come in creative Star Wars shapes, can be eaten any time of day, and are easy enough for a six-year-old to make. Which means this little recipe really needs no further introduction. Only this: they truly are the world's best pancakes. And since my mother's mother hails from Swedish heritage, I generally slather these bad boys up with a layer of sour cream followed by a layer of my favorite jam. (If you aren't feeling so adventurous syrup is also acceptable.) Either way, these fluffy pancakes will melt in your mouth and definitely have you craving more. 

Golden Pancakes
makes six

1 c. white flour
1-2 T. white sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup melted butter (yes, use the real thing)
2-3 eggs 
1 c. buttermilk (plus more to get the batter to the consistency you like)

Mix the dry ingredients, then add the melted butter, eggs, and buttermilk. Mix by hand or with an electric mixer and fire up the griddle. These can be served with traditional syrup or my favorite, sour cream and jam.
