About this recipe: Feeding a crowd for a lazy weekend brunch? This recipe feeds at least 12 hungry people. Serve these fluffy buttermilk pancakes on their own or as part of an American-style breakfast with bacon or sausage and fried eggs.
These are the BEST pancakes I have ever eaten. Usually I like to drown my pancakes in my homemade apple syrup, but these were awesome with a minimal amount of syrup. I made these last week, substituting milk and lemon juice for the buttermilk. It did not work, not sure if that was because of my error or whatever. In any case, I made it as stated today and they were perfect. I also scaled the recipe down to 9.6 servings to get equal eggs, etc. I really can't say enough about these, this recipe will be my pancake recipe from now on. You can also scale to 7.2 (3 eggs, 3 flour, 3 buttermilk, etc.); 4.8 (2 eggs, 2 flour, 2 buttermilk); 2.4 (1 egg, 1 flour, 1 buttermilk). Thank you for contributing! My family and I thank you very much! - 05 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Okay, so I have never felt compelled to write a recipe review before, but after making and (better yet) tasting these pancakes I just had to write a review! I am a pancake fiend and have tried just about every pancake mix there is, but I was never fully satisfied w/ the results. Well, that's all behind me now because this recipe is a keeper! The pancakes come out so light and fluffy and utterly delicious!!! I've made this 4 times now for friends and family and everyone raves about them and asks for the recipe. Also, the last couple of times I made them I added 2 tbsp each of milled flax seed and wheat germ; it doesn't change the taste at all and it adds a little healthy twist to it! - 18 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Now that's a pancake! Light and fluffy...everyone loved them. I scaled recipe back to 4.8 to feed 3 adults and 2 kids. Did not have buttermilk on hand so used 2 tblsp of lemon juice and filled measuring cup to 2cups of Milk...let sit for 5-10 mins to make your buttermilk, then added the required 1/2c regular milk with the rest of the wet ingredients. Will certainly make again! - 02 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
