When I think of the best pancake, I think of crispy and buttery on the outside and fluffy and soaked with syrupy goodness on the inside. These are those pancakes. They are crispy but not hard; fluffy but not heavy.
If you love pancakes but have struggled to find the perfect recipe, look no further! Happy pancake making!
The Best pancake Recipe*makes about 15 pancakes
*Can also be used to make waffles
*triple the dry ingredients to make a ready made mix( use the same amount of wet ingredients for every 2 cups of mix, but if you want to decrease the amount, use 1 cup of mix and half the wet ingredients)
*4 Tbs. of melted butter
*1cup of milk
*1 cup of buttermilk
*2 tsp. vanilla
*2 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour(I use grain that I buy from a co-op (http://www.haleysilo.com/ )and I mill at home, called soft white wheat. It makes a huge difference and is very nutritious ) But you can buy soft white wheat at the store if you don't have a mill.
*3 tsp. baking powder( this is the key to fluffy pancakes without the baking soda taste)
*1 tsp. salt
*2 Tbs. honey or sugar
Mix all the dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet mixture. Pour on buttered griddle. Flip when bubbles form on top. Serve and enjoy with maple syrup, fruit and whip cream!
1 cup of your choice of fruit( strawberries and mixed berries are our favorite)
1/2 cup of orange juice
2 Tbs. brown sugar
Heat over medium heat for 10 min.
Pour over pancakes while hot.
If you are all out of maple syrup here is a great buttermilk caramel syrup that you can make at home. We love it!
