I had leftover buttermilk from making delicious soda bread on St. Patties Day. So I looked online and found this recipe on Always read the reviews on the recipes… even the 4 3/4 star and 1,000 review recipes have room for improvement. We are always cooking for two (sometimes + a lunch). Here is our adapted recipe:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together buttermilk, milk, eggs and melted butter. Keep the two mixtures separate until you are ready to cook.
  2. Preheat oven to 250 to keep the cakes warm as they come out of the pan.
  3. Melt a T of butter at medium in a cast iron skillet (or frying pan). You can flick water across the surface and if it beads up and sizzles, it’s ready!
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, using a spatula to fold until blended. Stir until it’s just blended together. Do not over stir! Leave some lumps that WILL come out as you pour it into the pan. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/2 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

While cooking cakes, heat 2 C. frozen strawberries (we buy the big bag at GIANT and use them in smoothies, milkshakes, etc.) + 1 1/2 T sugar in the microwave for 3-4 minutes, or until strawberries get soft.
