mom's pancakes.

You know those recipes that your mom makes, that you totally take for granted when you are a little kid? And then you grow up, and one day you remember that wonderful...well, whatever...that your mom made and you just have to call her for the recipe? Well, last week I resurrected my mom's pancake recipe. I have actually had the recipe for a while, but haven't ever made it. I guess I overestimate the difficulty of getting out ALL those dry ingredients. That, and I never seem to have buttermilk on hand. But last week, I just happened to have the perfect amount of buttermilk and the overwhelming desire to eat some of my mom's pancakes. They were just as good as I remembered...

Here is the recipe:

Mom's Half Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes
  • 2 cups flour (1 cup white/1 cup whole wheat)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  1. Sift together dry ingredients in large bowl, mix wet ingredients in smaller bowl and combine, mixing well.
  2. Pour by 1/4 to 1/2 cup onto hot, buttered griddle (I usually have mine around 300-350, I think). Cook until bubbles on top pop, then flip and cook until browned on opposite side.
  3. Top with whatever you want and enjoy! These can be frozen and reheated in the toaster.
