The perfect pancake recipe
What’s better than thick, fluffy pancakes hot off the griddle? This is my grandmother’s recipe and I’m telling you, it cannot be improved upon. It’s truly perfect. And it comes together in minutes in one bowl! What’s not to love?
I need to take better photos of these but trust me: these are thick, fluffy, perfect pancakes. And because I know you’ll ask: if you don’t have buttermilk, combine 1 cup of regular milk with 1 Tbsp vinegar or fresh lemon juice. Stir and let the mixture stand for five minutes. It will have a similar consistency to buttermilk.
