Enough Gina. We just want the pancakes recipe.
So I perused through my Cooking Light Complete Cookbook cookbook instead of trying to use another blogger's post because well, some bloggers might create a recipe 100 in test kitchen, but I know I fudge everything and then put it out there. I don't bake often for these reasons because I hate rules. I need f r e e d o m.
Buttermilk Pancakes from Cooking Light by Jean Kressy...with my comments on the side.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, you can use whole wheat or go half white and half wheat
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup low-fat buttermilk (or add 1-2 tsp of lemon juice to regular milk)
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- Cooking spray
|Wait for the bubbles!|
- Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients (flour through salt) in a large bowl, and make a well in center of mixture. Combine buttermilk, oil, and egg; add to flour mixture, stirring until smooth.
- Spoon about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot nonstick griddle or nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray. Turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked.
At some point I will learn to be a better food photographer but my forte is eating at this stage of the game.
