Last weekend I posted my recipe for Hot Blueberry Compote, and I showed it over homemade waffles. However, it’s also delicious over pancakes. We always make our pancakes from scratch and the recipe is super easy. You can put anything in them or on top of them and we vary them with toppings and fillings such as: blueberries, strawberries, bananas, chocolate chips (of course) and craisins. My absolute favorite combination is a “pancake sandwich” of two banana pancakes stacked with a chocolate chip pancake in between them. Butter, syrup…mmmmm…..
Here is our recipe for Basic Pancakes, which uses very basic ingredients that you probably already have on hand. As usual it’s the recipe I grew up with. We keep it taped into the front cover of our recipe tin so that all we have to do is lift the cover, and there it is (Don’s idea.)
2 cups Buttermilk (2 TBL white vinegar and enough milk to make 2 c.)
1/4 c. canola oil (or vegetable oil)
2 cups flour
2 TBL sugar or honey
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl. Pour onto hot frying pan or griddle. Add desired fillings and/or toppings.
