d’s buttermilk pancakes.

In a previous post I mentioned the ever elusive D.  The man may be a crazy, funny, quirky man, but he’s one heckuva granddad.  And as you’re well aware, he’s got quite the sense of humor.  Well, on top of this quirky humor, he’s also pretty crafty in the kitchen.  He has what goes down as my mother’s favorite pancake recipe ever.  Just ask her…oh and when you do, please mention tennis in the same sentence.  Trust me on this.  Oh boy, she used to whip up this recipe and keep the extras in the freezer for a rainy day, or rather, a tennis tournament day….sorry, I got distracted…

Yes, pancakes.  These are goooooood.  Plain, simple, buttermilk pancakes.

Eat them.  Love them.  Thank D.


1 Cup flour, 1 Cup buttermilk, 2 eggs, 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp melted butter, salt (but don’t go crazy unless you like an overload of sodium in the morning…) pam.

mix all ingredients well. Spray the pam on the frying pan and heat on medium. spoon in mixture forming pancakes.  (this always proves difficult for me, but i have faith in you guys…) turn over when bubbles appear through the top.  now cook on other side for just a minute or two.

see. easy.

And as my mom would say…”Great breakfast for tennis matches..” 

Yes, Mom…always. 🙂

    do you freeze the batter or the pancakes?

    This recipe really only makes about 8 normal sized pancakes so I didn’t have enough to freeze the batter, but my mom has always frozen the batter. Oh great, now I want pancakes. 🙂

    why is that? and you have to ask my mom about her obsession with pancakes and tennis. it’s a funny story now…when we were younger, not so much. 🙂

    I never have buttermilk in the house. Wondering if you can make these pancakes with regular milk…..????? Guess I will try it and see.

      hey Erin- you can just substitute buttermilk with milk and vinegar.
      Try this- use just a tablespoon of white vinegar – put in a measuring cup…then add enough milk to make it up to a full cup. Just let it stand for 5 minutes. And there’s your buttermilk substitute. 🙂
