Pancakes for Breakfast

It’s another miserable rainy day in Brisbane so we kicked it off the day with some yummy buttermilk pancakes with berries and maple syrup.

Somehow buttermilk just makes pancakes taste that much better.  If you don’t have any buttermilk on hand you can create a substitute in less than five minutes. Just mix 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice. Stir and leave to sit for five minutes.  Easy!

Here’s the recipe that I used to make the pancakes today.

Buttermilk Pancakes, based on a recipe from Taste.

1/4 cups caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 cup self-raising flour, sifted
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 egg
olive oil cooking spray

Combine sugar, bicarbonate of soda and flour in a bowl. Whisk buttermilk and egg. Stir into flour mixture.

Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Spray with oil. Pour 2 tablespoonfuls of batter into pan. Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles form on surface. Turn. Cook a further 1 to 2 minutes or until cooked through. Repeat with remaining mixture.
