What better way to start a morning than with pancakes? When they are fresh out of the pan and drizzled with maple syrup, it is like giving your belly and soul a warm hug. Now, who can say no to that?
Makes 6 pancakes
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
maple syrup, to serve
1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
2. Stir in the buttermilk, egg, and melted butter until just combined. Batter should be lumpy.
3. Heat a large non-stick skillet (or griddle) over a low flame. Make the pancakes by pouring 1/2 cup of batter onto the skillet, using the base of the measuring cup to evenly spread the batter. Cook pancake for 1 minute, then flip and cook for an additional 1 minute until golden.
4. Serve with maple syrup.
5. Wasn’t that easy? Now go eat!
