Ingredients

Directions

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

  • For standard-size pancakes, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet, spreading batter if necessary. For dollar-size pancakes, use about 1 tablespoon batter. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown, turning to second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry. Serve warm. If desired, top with syrup. Makes 12 standard-size pancakes or 40 dollar-size pancakes.

These pancakes are amazingly fluffy. I had to add a little extra buttermilk to get the consistency right. Great with butter and maple syrup. I also tried it with a blueberry spread and butter. So delicious!

Not sure what you are changing in your recipes, but this mix was overly dry. Had to add an extra egg and another 1/2 cup of milk

I had to add about 3/4 C more buttermilk so the batter would move on its own. Not sure why it was so thick.
