Directions

  1. Warm up a skillet on medium heat.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients to buttermilk, oil and egg mixture. Use a whisk or spoon to blend the dry ingredients until they are completely moist.
  3. Use a tablespoon of canola oil to grease the skillet. Using a ⅓-cup measuring cup, scoop the pancake mixture on the skillet. Each pancake should spread to about 4 inches across. Leave about 2" between the pancakes for easy flipping. Flip pancakes using a spatula—do this when the bubbles on the top of the pancakes have mostly disappeared. Allow the other side to brown until the center no longer appears wet.
  4. Move to serving dish.
  5. For a healthier twist, think of serving with fresh berries and a side of eggs.

Tip: Freeze leftover buttermilk pancakes and reheat for a quick breakfast.
