Buttermilk Pancakes

These buttermilk pancakes are definitely a staple in our house! They make a really great breakfast or a quick and cheap dinner! We have very fond memories of our son calling these "pan-pies"....we're a little sad he doesn't call them that anymore- but maybe we can get his little sister to call them that...hmmm :-)

If you know anything about us, we have a true love for Disney and you can't have pancakes here without a little Mouse!

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
3 tbsp vegetable oil

1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl combine egg, buttermilk and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy). Stir in fruit at this point if desired.

2. For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased skillet. For dollar sized pancakes, use 1 tbsp batter. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown, turning to second side when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry. Serve warm. Top with syrup.

Enjoy! (Man...now I want pancakes!)
