Cannot believe how time has flown so fast! I mean we are on the second day of autumn although the weather has not yet shifted by that much I think I am much happier knowing that there will be cooler days ahead, haha. Being born in a tropical country does not necessarily makes a person appreciates humidity and hot weather. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer because we don’t get sick as often (*touch wood) and the kids are not so house bound which means I don’t need to spend hours cleaning up the toys which seems to keep reappearing in every corner of our tiny apartment.
Anyways, tomorrow is weekend. Two days off that everyone has been longing for the whole week to go on holidays, meeting up with friends or like me weekend means preparing special breakfast for weekend treat in our home after having cereals , bread and left over dinner for breakfast during the week. Pancake is one of breakfast favourite. I am stuck with this William Sonoma’s recipe forever I think and I thought of sharing this recipe for whomever needs some lift me up or something quick before starting their weekend. Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!!
Buttermilk Pancakes (serve : 4)
2 cup all purpose flour
2tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
2cups buttermilk **
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1/2 (half) tsp vanila extract
Cooking oil/butter for cooking the pancakes
1. Beat eggs (using whisk/hand mixer) until frothy for about 2 minutes.
2. Add buttermilk, melted butter & vanilla. Mix well.
3. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat until just combined (don’t overmix or else you will end up with dense texture pancake). The batter consistency should be thick.
4. Heat up the pan, add a bit of oil /butter, spoon out 1 tbsp pancake batter (you can make it bigger if you like).
5. Add any toppings or whatever you have in your pantry. Drizzle with mapple syrup/ honey and a scoop of ice cream.
**If you don’t have buttermilk in your fridge, you could mix 1 cup of milk with 1 tbsp of lemon juice and leave it for 15 minutes before use.
