Did anyone teach their husband how to beat egg whites last week in honor of the Waffle Throwdown?
I’m here to tell you ladies, a few cooking lessons will benefit you in the long run! But if beating egg whites and waffle-making is too advanced, anyone – and I do mean anyone – can make great pancakes!
I thought my friend Ann was kidding when she said she had never made pancakes with anything except Bisquick.
I’ve only learned recently that people actually make pancakes with Bisquick. No offense to Bisquick but those are some nasty pancakes.
I posted Our Favorite Pancakes way back in May which happens to be an IHOP copycat recipe.
When Ann said she made them for dinner one night and couldn’t believe how good they were, PhilBillPaul said she really needs to try another one of our favorite pancake recipes.
Shortly after, Leigh Anne had posted the Overnight Waffle Recipe and this is when I realized we were keeping some great recipes to ourselves and I should be more forthcoming.
Here is a recipe for some delicious buttermilk pancakes. If you don’t know this little tip and I’ll about sharing – if you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can put 1 Tbsp of lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup and then add regular milk to the 1 cup line. Let sit for 5 minutes and you have a decent buttermilk substitution.
Oh, and one more great tip:
I highly recommend buying one of those long electric griddles if you don’t already have one because they really make cooking pancakes much more efficient!
59 Diner Pancakes
- 2 eggs
- 2 C buttermilk
- 6 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 1-3/4 C flour
- 2-1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp sugar
Combine liquid ingredients and dry ingredients separately. Mix until smooth. Let batter rest for 10 minutes. Cook on a preheated, lightly greased griddle for 1 minute. Sprinkle fresh blueberries, pecans, chocolate chips, bananas or strawberries on uncooked side. Turn pancakes and finish cooking. Makes about 10 pancakes.
For some reason I think we got this recipe from Parade Magazine many years ago…
We PhilBillPaul always doubles this recipe.
Try them and tell me what you think. And please do share any great pancake recipes you have in the comment box – I just don’t think you can have too many “personally-endorsed by friends” recipes on hand!
We have breakfast for dinner at least once a week and Sunday Brunch too so we have lots of opportunities to try different recipes!
