Perfect Pancakes & Buttermilk Syrup
I've been eyeballing this recipe from the Pioneer Woman for awhile. We love pancakes but not with a mix so much. I thought this recipe might be the magic recipe that I would use for the rest of my life. The other thing is the syrup. While at Primary Children's Medical Center with Natalie we heard about blueberry pancake day that is one day a week and served with a heavenly buttermilk syrup that made them something that the nurses and techs would line up to buy. We learned about this pancake day after we weren't there any more to try them but I was given the syrup recipe and have wanted to try it for a long time. I decided that on Christmas morning I would try the Pioneer Woman's Perfect Pancakes and I would make the Buttermilk Syrup to go with them. The recipes are at the end of the post.
The batter should be a little lumpy. Cook on a hot griddle until they are bubbly then flip.
I have to say these weren't as light and fluffy as I thought they would be. I am not sure they are my favorite but the men folk seemed to like them. The syrup is very yummy and makes a wonderful caramel-like sauce to serve over ice cream. MMMMM! Try this if you would like. I might make the pancakes again but I might try a different recipe or probably stick with the one I usually make. It was fun to try. Happy New Year!!!!
