these are magical.
especially when topped with cinnamon cream syrup.
magical, i tell you.
these are the very same pancakes i told you about before – see how magical they really are? they can be blueberry, or plain, or chocolate chip, or even sprinkled with fairy dust. whatever you want.
Magical Buttermilk Pancakes
makes about 8 smallish pancakes.
i recommend tripling this recipe – these freeze exceptionally well if wrapped securely in plastic wrap (I love using that press&seal stuff).
1 large egg
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons applesauce (or oil. but trust me, you cannot even tell the difference when you use applesauce! try it.)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch kosher salt
* blueberries, chocolate chips, cooked and chopped bacon, etc. optional – about 1 cup.
heat a little butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Beat egg in a large mixing bowl, then incorporate remaining ingredients just until smooth.
ladle about 1/4 cup batter onto skillet and cook about 1 minute before adding any of the optional ingredients (blueberries, choco chips…) over the batter. i just grab a handful and sprinkle over the top.
When edges are golden and cooked through, flip pancake over and cook about a minute more.
Place in a warm oven, on a cooling rack or in your face.
best served with generous pats of sweet butter and cinnamon cream syrup, or real maple syrup. i mean, in my opinion.
hope you enjoy the magic!
