the best buttermilk pancakes. ever.

Twenty one hundred miles later, and we are home.  So much to share, and no internet to do it during our little adventure.  In the end, I decided that was probably a good thing... less technology time and more family time. I'm still working on our pics.  But, today I want to share this recipe.

Summer….sleeping in, pjs until noon, and a little more time to make the "big breakfast".  A huge thank you to our friend Dan who has been making these (melt in your mouth) buttermilk pancakes for family and friends for years,  and was kind enough to share the recipe with me. His recipe is kind of famous in this part of town. It's a recipe he created after tweaking a really boring pancake recipe and the result was these crazy good pancakes.   I think you'll agree.

Buttermilk Pancakes:
3 c. all purpose flour
6 T. sugar
3 t. baking powder
1 ½ t. baking soda
1 t. salt

4 c. (1 quart) buttermilk
6 eggs
2 sticks melted butter
1 shovel of love:)
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Beat the eggs in a separate bowl.  Add buttermilk, beaten eggs, and melted butter to dry ingredients.  Mix thoroughly, lumps are OK.  Add the love and you're good to go. 

Also, a fun side note from Dan….if you replace the buttermilk with regular milk, you get a delightful crepe style pancake.  You know, just in case you wake up feeling a little French one morning!
Bon Appetit!!!
