My husband loves to wake up early on Saturday mornings and make elaborate breakfasts with our kids. It is incredibly special to all of them, and I get to enjoy coffee in bed while they take over the kitchen. It is a win-win for everyone.
Unfortunately, he is gone to California for training until June. We miss him like crazy! The breakfast torch has been passed on to me until he returns. While we usually opt for Kodiak Cakes mix, I find myself craving super fluffy buttermilk pancakes with lots of butter and warm maple syrup. These are easy, quick to put together, and ALWAYS loved. I hope you love this recipe!
You will need:
- 2 cups AP flour
- 2 1/3 cups milk (any fat % will do- if you use a lower fat, you will need to add 1-2 Tbsp more flour to your batter to help thicken it a little)
- 3 Tbsp white vinegar
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 3 tbsp sugar (don’t skimp- it’s just enough)
- 1.5 tsp baking powder
- 1.5 tsp baking soda
- 1.5 tsp salt
- canola oil for cooking
- warm maple syrup and room temp butter for serving.
Go ahead and put a skillet on a burner and set it to med-low heat. Pre-heat your oven to 200*F.
Add the vinegar to the milk and set aside. This is homemade buttermilk.
Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk this around until it is all combined. Make a well in the middle.
Pour the homemade buttermilk into the well, followed by the two eggs, and then the melted butter. Gently whisk the liquid mixture together making sure to slowly start working your way into the flour mixture. Mix this until it is just combined. You want the batter to be fluffy and lumpy. You will see a lot of bubbling, and this is exactly what you want!
Pour 1-2 Tbsp of canola oil into your skillet. Using a 1/3 or 1/2 cup measure, scoop the pancake mixture into the skillet and let it cook for 3-5 minutes. Flip it and let it cook for another 2-4 minutes. Repeat until the mixture is gone. This will yield 8-10 pancakes. You can serve them as they come out, or you can put them on a sheet pan in the oven to stay warm.
Serve these with room temperature butter, warm maple syrup, and fresh fruit. They are incredibly fluffy and flavorful!
Have a blessed Lent! May God bless you and keep you always.
Lots of love and many blessings,
He said to him, “Follow me.”
And leaving everything behind, he got up and followed him.
Then Levi gave a great banquet for him in his house,
and a large crowd of tax collectors
and others were at table with them.
The Pharisees and their scribes complained to his disciples, saying,
“Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?”
Jesus said to them in reply,
“Those who are healthy do not need a physician, but the sick do.
I have not come to call the righteous to repentance but sinners.”
