Breakfast For Dinner

One of our favorite dinners is breakfast...and pancakes are one of the top choices. A family recipe for pancakes was passed down from my husband's side of the family and these pancakes turn out light and fluffy without a lot of effort. Honestly if you try these, you won't ever use a mix. They are so much better. Just make sure you use real buttermilk and not the powdered stuff!

2 C flour
1/4 C sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda

Beat together: 2 C buttermilk
2 eggs
1/4 C oil

Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and stir just until all ingredients are mixed together. You can add in additional ingredients like blueberries (we like to plop these onto the pancakes after we have the batter on the griddle), craisins, cinnamon/sugar/butter (we also plop this onto the pancake batter after we have it on the griddle), chocolate chips...whatever your taste buds are craving at the moment.

Added bonus: Turn these pancakes into waffles just by separating the eggs and beating the egg whites until stiff. Fold in the egg whites to the rest of the ingredients.

Trust me these pancakes have been around for awhile and they have stood the test of time! Enjoy! Mom
