So good, you'll never eat Bisquick again
These fluffy buttermilk pancakes are a famous recipe in my family (and with my friends now too). I'm not sure where the original recipe came from but in my family they are known as (Great)-Grandma's Pancakes.
These are seriously the best pancakes you will ever taste. I'm actually a bit hesitant to share the recipe because it feels a bit like sharing a really good secret, but I just don't think I can hold this secret in any longer.
This recipe has been at the forefront of my cooking/baking repertoire for as long as I've been cooking. In college, I would sometimes bring a batch of these pancakes made in silver dollar size. They were so well received that the lecture was regularly interrupted by "pass the bucket down this way!"
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, SEPARATED
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teasppoon salt
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- Mix everything (including yolks) except egg whites - which should be reserved in a small bowl when eggs are separated.
- Beat egg whites to soft peaks.
- Gently fold frothy egg whites into the rest of the batter.
- Cook on lightly greased griddle.
- Flip when no new bubbles are forming and the edges begin to look dry.
- Do NOT flatten with spatula after flipping - allow them to be wonderfully fluffy.
- Enjoy warm with any number of pancake toppings: syrup, powdered sugar, fruit topping, etc. Or eat them plain (you'd be surprised about how good they are, even cold and plain).
