Pancakes are a breakfast staple and a favorite among people of all ages. They are really easy to make, you can get creative by adding a variety of toppings and ingredients. One of the most popular pancake recipes is buttermilk pancakes.
Fluffy and delicious, these pancakes are the perfect way to start your day and are made even better when served with pure grade A maple syrup. What makes buttermilk pancakes so special is the use of buttermilk in the batter.
Buttermilk is a cultured dairy product that is made from milk that has been fermented. This gives the batter a tangy flavor and helps to create a light and fluffy texture. The acid in the buttermilk reacts with the baking powder to create a tender crumb, making these pancakes some of the best you'll ever taste.
To make the best of your buttermilk pancakes use pure maple syrup as a topping. Unlike other syrups that are made with artificial flavors and high fructose corn syrup, pure maple syrup is made from the sap of maple trees and has a natural, sweet flavor. It's an excellent source of antioxidants and has a rich, complex taste that pairs perfectly with tangy buttermilk pancakes.
Here's how to make the best buttermilk pancakes with pure maple syrup:
- 1 1/2 cups Barlow's 3 in 1 Pancake, Biscuit and Waffle Mix
- 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk
- 1/4 cup of melted butter
- 1 egg
- Pure maple syrup for serving
In a large bowl, beat eggs then mix in buttermilk and melted butter.
Combine mixture into dry mix and stir until slightly lumpy. Be sure not to over mix. As over mixing may result in tough textured pancakes...and we don't want that.
Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan for each pancake. Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
Serve the hot pancakes with a generous pouring of pure maple syrup.
Enjoy your delicious and fluffy buttermilk pancakes with pure maple syrup! These pancakes are perfect for a special breakfast or brunch, or for a quick and easy meal any day of the week.
The combination of tangy buttermilk and rich, sweet pure maple syrup makes for a breakfast that's both satisfying and delicious.
