I bought a small carton of buttermilk to make whoopie pies for my sister’s party. The next few posts will of course be about buttermilk as I try to use it up before the expiry date. 🙂
A really delightful way to use buttermilk is to make buttermilk pancakes. There are a lot of buttermilk pancakes recipes on the internet. This one caught my eye because of the title.
I halved the recipe and made 7 pancakes of approximately 5 inches diameter each.
Melt-in-the-mouth buttermilk pancakes (from ohsweetbasil)
- 128 grams all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg, slightly whisked
- 250 ml buttermilk
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt into a bowl.
- Mix egg, buttermilk and salt in a bowl.
- Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold to combine.
- Melt about 1/2 tbsp butter in a frying pan.
- Pour in 1 ladle of pancake mix in the middle of the pan. Reduce heat to low.
- Flip over when pancake turns golden brown.
- Serve warm with butter and drizzled with maple syrup.
Were they melt-in-the-mouth? Hmm. They didn’t exactly melt. But they tasted very good! Fluffy with such wonderful fragrance from the buttermilk. This is a super way to use buttermilk.
