Buttermilk at it's Best

These pancakes are ALWAYS a big hit at our house!

3 cups of all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons of white sugar
3 teaspoons of baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
3/4 teaspoon of salt
3 cups of buttermilk
1/2 cup of milk
3 eggs
1/3 cup of butter

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. in a separate bow, beat together buttermilk, milk, eggs and melted butter. Keep the two mixtures separate until you are ready to cook.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.

Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, using a wooden spoon or fork to blend. Stir until it's just blended together. Do not over stir! Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/2 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

These delicious buttermilk pancake are part of our Valentines tradition. I use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut the pancakes into a heart. We serve them with strawberry syrup, pink milk, bacon and eggs. DELIGHTFUL!
