I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Fluffy Pancakes

I think I spoiled the family when I started making pancakes from scratch. They do not care for boxed anymore. These are very fluffy and very good.  I added blueberries when I took this picture.


FLUFFY PANCAKES (makes about 14-6" pancakes)

Ingredients:
*3 cups flour
*2 tablespoons sugar
*1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
*3 teaspoons baking powder
*1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/4 cup butter, melted
*1/2 cup milk, room temperature
*3 cups buttermilk, room temperature
*3 eggs, room temperature
*2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions:
~Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.
~In a separate bowl, beat together butter, milk, buttermilk, eggs & vanilla.
~Mix the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, using a whisk or fork.
~Stir just until it's blended together, breaking up the big lumps.
Smaller lumps will disappear while it cooks.
~Oil a griddle and lightly oil.
~Cook pancakes over medium heat.
~Brown on both sides, serve hot

Variations:
`Add 1 cup of your favorite fruit
`Add 1 cup pecans, chopped small

Helpful Hint: You can flick water across the surface of the hot griddle, if the water dances (or beads up), it's ready to cook on.

If you like thinner pancakes, then you will want to beat until all lumps are gone and may want to add 1/2 cup milk.
