One of my favorite memories of my childhood and even my adulthood is watching my grandmother mix up the ingredients to her homemade pancakes and then enjoying them.
I love pancakes, and I can assure you that I have ordered pancakes at numerous restaurants over the past (almost four) decades. However, no pancake is nearly as delicious as those my grandmother taught me to make.
What makes these pancakes even better is watching Jackson enjoy them with the same gusto that I did all those years ago.
From start to finish this recipe will take you about 20 minutes.
1 large egg
2 cups buttermilk
1 1/4 – 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
Pam cooking spray
Preheat griddle to 400 degrees.
Whisk egg and stir in buttermilk.
Using a fork, carefully blend in flour until batter is well mixed but still has a few lumps.
Test batter by pulling fork out of the batter. Look for a slow drip.
If batter sticks to fork completely, add more buttermilk.
Immediately before pouring pancake batter on griddle, use cooking spray on the surface to ensure pancakes do not stick.
Allow to cook 3-4 minutes, until small bubbles form on the top of the batter.
Cook on opposite side for 2-3 minutes until batter is cooked through.
Serve with butter and your favorite syrup.
Variations include adding chocolate chips or blueberries.
Makes approximately 8-10 pancakes.
