See, I used to be horrible at pancakes. Something about such a simple bunch of ingredients slapped onto a griddle was just WAY beyond me. Still can’t explain it, but maybe it’s because when I cook I often multitask. Pancakes, you gotta watch closely!

Enough years spent with the pancake master himself (my handsome hubby), and I’ve finally got it down. The patience, that is! A stack of these could make you weak in the knees, baby!

You know how those breakfast diner pancakes are always just right – soft, fluffy and stacked high? Now you can have them at home!

Whip up a batch some lazy weekend morning and you’ll thank me. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, use the same amount of milk and a teaspoon of white vinegar or lemon juice – let sit for a few minutes. Voila, buttermilk!

  17. I made them and they were yummy!!

  18. I made these 4 times this week (refrigerated half the mix two mornings to use the next). I can say with all sincerity, this is by far the best pancake recipe I’ve ever used. And I’ve been on the hunt for a while! I subbed whole milk for the buttermilk simply because it’s what we had. So sweet, so fluffy, so perfect!!

  20. If you don’t have buttermilk , it’s easy to make! 1 cup of milk or what where it calls for just add 2 tbps of lemon juice! This where the best pancakes I ever had ! Will be making these again!

  21. I made these for lunch today and they were AMAZING!!!! Very soft and fluffy.

  22. Absolutely awesome! Way better than cracker barrel!

  23. The next time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I know it was my option to read, however I really thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you could fix in the event you werent too busy in search of attention.

  24. Salt?
