But part of me thought, "For pancakes?"
I have a confession.
I have always made pancakes from a mix. Like a box mix. Sometimes I use the ones you add water to, other times I actually add the eggs and oil.
But recently I have been trying to do more "home cooking". So I have been searching for just the right recipe.
I have tried one or two that were so so.
Then I decided to try this one.
I will admit: It is labeled as an IHOP copycat recipe. I am sure I have eaten at an IHOP. I think. Maybe once or twice a LONG time ago? Not in any recent memory. So I can't really compare.
But that isn't what inspired me to try it.
It was the picture, the easy recipe, the basic ingredients.
So I made them.
And they worked for me.
Tonight (breakfast for dinner) we had them again.
And I still liked them.
Which means NOW it is time to post the recipe.
By the way, this recipe feeds all 6 of us with just a few left over. (Which I freeze...they warm up nicely) If you want a smaller serving, check out the original recipe.
3 3/4 cups of flour (I actually rounded up slightly. I used 2 cups of all purpose and 2 cups of white whole wheat flour)
3 tsp baking powder
3tsp baking soda
pinch of salt (or two or three :)
3 eggs, beaten
3 3/4 cup buttermilk (Note: If you don't have buttermilk, you can use regular milk and add 1 Tbsp lemon juice or vinegar for each cup of milk; let it sit for 5-10 minutes)
6 Tbsp butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
Stir together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt).
Mix the eggs and buttermilk.
Pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredient mixture.
Add the sugar and butter.
Stir until just mixed.
Fry on a greased griddle. (I used my electric griddle set on 375 degrees F.
We butter them as soon as they come off the griddle.
(PS Can be frozen; I would separate with wax paper or parchment paper or they will stick together)
