Everyone knows that brunch is the best meal of the week. On Sundays I like to stay in bed late, and eat a real breakfast that nobody has time for during the week. So when the headline, “The world’s best pancake recipe” showed up in my Google Reader one morning, I bookmarked it and knew that I would be eating the most delicious buttermilk pancakes for brunch the next Sunday.
The only ingredient that I had to buy before I made these was buttermilk. The writer of the original post suggests using the best ingredients you could find, especially real buttermilk; apparently grocery stores sell impostors. Since I live in Manhattan, I easily found the real stuff, but if you live elsewhere, I’m sure it’s well worth it to search for it.
Robie’s Buttermilk Flapjacks
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 4 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 teaspoons of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of fine salt
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 4 tablespoons of melted butter
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 2 beaten eggs
- Combine the dry ingredients. Whisk and set aside
- Combine and whisk together the wet ingredients.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk until just combined.
- Fry with butter
These really might be the best pancakes ever. I served them warm with real maple syrup (not “pancake syrup”) as suggested and a freshly percolated pot of coffee. What a great way to start off a lazy Sunday!
I added chocolate chips to about half of the pancakes as soon as I put them on the fire,Try adding your favorite pancake add-in. Next time, maybe I’ll try blueberry or banana.
