Have you ever tasted something that's pretty much blown your mind? No, really. I'm being serious. The first time it happened to me, it was Thai food. I had never tried it before and my first bite was like heaven!
I'll admit, it's only happened a handful of times in my life, but when it does... I never forget how that first bite tasted. This was definitely the case with my Mom's famous homemade buttermilk pancakes.
I am a huge breakfast fan. Always have been. That being said, I'm also VERY picky about my pancakes. Pre-made mixes are fine if you're camping or in a time crunch, but if you're going to make pancakes... then MAKE pancakes.
The secret ingredient in these amazing, life-changing, melt in your mouth, fluffy cakes of goodness... is buttermilk and melted butter.
Fattening? Um... yeah. But absolutely, positively worth EVERY calorie. I promise.
We all doctor our pancakes up a bit differently around here. Some with peanut butter and syrup...
others, with butter and powdered sugar.
But one thing we ALL agree on, is that once you try these incredible buttermilk pancakes, there is NO going back to those gummy, heavy, grainy mixes again. Your taste buds will now know what a real pancake SHOULD taste like.
