Breakfast for Dinner
Once again, my friend Michelle helped me figure out what to make for dinner :o) She's such a lifesaver! She recommended pancakes and eggs and, knowing that I had my aunt's recipe for homemade buttermilk pancakes in my recipe arsenal, I immediately agreed that it would be a great idea. Rob agreed as well, so all I had to do was run to the store for some buttermilk.
These pancakes are easy and delicious. They are what my Aunt Laura is famous for, and she always makes them for everyone for breakfast when we are together. I was so happy to find the recipe in the family cookbook she put together for everyone. I sprinkled some blueberries on mine, and Rob wanted to try one with chocolate chips. He decided he didn't like them that way (he's weird) so he'll be sticking to the original recipe. I also made scrambled eggs to go with them, but wasn't able to get a good picture of them. So I'll just share a bunch of yummy pancake pictures with you :o)
Buttermilk Pancakes (source: my Aunt Laura; originally from Marion Cunningham's Breakfast Cookbook)
2 cups buttermilk
2 eggs at room temperature
6 tbsp butter, melted
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
Combine buttermilk. eggs and butter. Blend until smooth. Combine flour, salt and soda. Stir dry ingredients into milk mixture until just moistened. Pour onto hot griddle. Sprinkle blueberries if desired. Flip when bubbles have set.
I used a wire whisk to blend the wet ingredients and it worked perfectly.
