Hot Off The Griddle: Dad’s Favorite Pancakes
On those special Sunday mornings when I was a kid (or an adult), my dad would mess up the kitchen and make these incredible pancakes that are light as a feather. Now I’m messing up the kitchen making my favorite breakfast item. Thanks dad!!
(I’m including blueberries, but they are delicious on their own as well)
Ingredients (Serves 6 easily. For two people, halve the recipe)
2 Cups Sifted All-Purpose Flour
2/3 Teaspoon Salt
4 Teaspoons Brown Sugar
5 Teaspoons Sugar (Sugar Substitute works, too)
2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
2 Cups Buttermilk
5 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
2 Pints Blueberries
Zest of One Orange and/or splash of Grand Marnier
Beat Eggs until fluffy and light in color. Add Sifted Flour, Sugars, Baking Soda, Baking Powder and Orange Zest/Grand Marnier. Stir in Buttermilk. Continue to stir long enough to make the mixture smooth and velvety; free of lumps. Add Vegetable Oil. Do not over beat. Put pancake mixture on heated griddle (add Blueberries to each pancake), heat, turn and serve (you can keep pancakes in 200 degree oven to warm as you make enough for everyone).
This make for an elegant breakfast!
